FileList Creator 13.07.2013

FileList Creator allows you to produce a detailed report of any set of files on your hard drive.

This has many applications. You might want to record what's on a CD, for instance, or send someone a list of all your MP3 files. And if you're contacting technical support about PC problems then it might be useful to send them a list of the files in some relevant folders. Whatever your reason, Filelist Creator aims to help.

At a minimum all you have to do is drag and drop in the files you'd like to list, or point the program at a particular folder.

You can then choose what the report should include (name, path, dates, attributes, checksums and more), how the columns are ordered, grouped and more.

And when you're done, the report can be sent to the clipboard, or saved in a variety of formats (text, csv file, HTML table, or as a gif/ jpg/ bmp image).

While this generally works well, there are a couple of problems. The most notable being performance. The program insists on "analysing files", presumably to create checksums, and if the files in your list are large then this takes an age. (The history suggests this is addressed by "a free adjustable border for the file size"), but we couldn't even find the setting to test it.)

And although FileList Creator is nominally freeware, when we tried to save and reload the program's default configuration it told us this wouldn't work unless we sent them $15.

FileList Creator is a powerful tool, then, but until the authors resolve the speed issue it's hard to recommend. Only download it if a) you're very patient, or b) you'll only ever need to create lists of very small files.
