Any programs suitable for making a database over disk-content?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Because I couldn't find help anywhere else, I decided to make an OCN account after lurking for a long time. rolleyes.gif

I have quite a lot of external hard-drives, and often have a hard time finding what I'm looking for - not to mention not storing the same file several times on different drives or finding free space when I need. I was therefor wondering if there are any database-programs suitable for storing the content of disks; including filenames, size and modification dates?

There is a way to backup the structure of directories and files only, without actually backing up the files themselves ? I use Windows 7.

Generally, the more automated the program is in searching each disk and parse information about the files, the better. Ideally, it should use a checksum (or something) to identify an identical files. A database that also stores information about each disk - like partitioning, format (filesystems) and free space remaining (on each partition) - would be a plus.

I'm really after a more specialized stand-alone program; at least for managing collections, but preferably specialized for keeping track of files on multiple disks.

I'm also open to unconventional approaches (using a program intended for something else). Has anybody had a similar problem and found a good solution?
