I used DCM for a few months earlier this year (don't remember which version) but kept having problems with it, not the least of which was continually forgetting where the catalog file was, and opening up a new, blank catalog instead.

I had asked the developer that a "scanned date" column is needed, because It's impossible to tell when the volume was last scanned without this.
The dev. replied: "To add the new columng, we should change the catalog database format. It would be a major update version. I can not promise about the release date of the future versions."

Doesn't seem like adding a column would require a major update, but what do I know?


I've been using NeoFinder for several months now, and haven't encountered any problems yet. My catalog keeps track of two internal partitions, as well as 26 partitions and 7 folders on 18 external drives.
That's a lot to catalog, but NeoFinder handles it well.

I've been using DiskCatalogMaker for several years (at least since mid 2007). When I was researching the different cataloging software that was available at that time there wasn't anything on the market that would catalog as fast as DiskCatalogMaker.

The following version upgrade message from Fujiwara Software for the past 6 years has definitely help to keep me loyal:
"This major update version is a free upgrade for registered users of DiskCatalogMaker."

FREE…FREE…LOL…are you kidding me. Who else does that on major releases for years? From their version history it appears they have been giving free upgrades (at least) since 2002, when version 3.0 was released. I wish I purchased the initial release of DiskCatalogMaker just to know I was getting free upgrades for 24+ years)

I would think the competitors have improved (maybe not) since my original analysis but DiskCatalogMaker gives me what I want and it gives it to me fast. Granted, I don't need all of the bells and whistles but DiskCatalogMaker keeps me cataloged.

This developer is now really listening ! Finally Sparkle update support.

Centering window would be nice too :)

Leaving this app and going. Despite new updates developer seems in constant sleep mode. I just want to center a screen and use Sparkle for updates. Design is outdated too !!

I used to use this years ago and switched to CDFinder for reasons I can't remember now. I decided to check back with DCM and put it up against NeoFinder (CDFinder's successor).

DCM certainly loads fast and seems to maybe even index a drive faster than NeoFinder in my very rough, preliminary testing, but there's glaring problems that need to be resolved.

For one, the app forgets where you had the window last and shoves it back into the top-left corner each and every time you re-launch it. No good.

Also, the GUI is slightly more cumbersome than NeoFinder. I would test more, but the app forgetting the window placement is annoyance enough for me to stop here.

Hopefully the developer will address this and I'll come back, try it and give it further review.

Works great.

I have never hang, crash or other issue with DCM.

The price is a little high compared to AppStore's apps.

Seems to work great but looks and GUI are so outdated. Can't even center screen and no Sparkle update implementation

Can someone explain what "Free ($29.95) means?
Sounds somewhat conflicting to me.

Hi Flyboy, It means $29.95. Sometimes developers list wares as free as in "free to download" or "free while in beta." IMO, it's misleading in both cases.

Thanks for pointing this out, this was actually an error on our part and not the developers. I've updated the listing to reflect the proper license :)

Looks like there will be no more updates beyond DCM RE (currently 5.6.2) that's bundled with Toast 11. It still works for my minimal purposes on 10.8.2 but I won't seriously rely on it in case it eventually fails.

Its minimal purpose is still faster than most other options. And no fails on my 10.6.8 end.

When I have posted the questions, I was thinking it was an error, but now, I think I will have to give a little more money to the developer... I will take profit of the beta to learn how it works and buy it ! Thanks to all to have put me the right way !

You can upgrade from RE for $19.99 USD. Not too bad of a deal. I'm still using the RE version.
