DiskLibrary for Mac1.9.9

09 April 2011

Remote media cataloging application.

What is DiskLibrary for Mac

Note: DiskLibrary is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

DiskLibrary is a fun and easy to use disk cataloging application for Mac OS X. DiskLibrary is indispensable if you have a lot of media to keep track of. DiskLibrary catalogs not just your complete file structure, it also creates thumbnails, and stores metadata, for most popular media formats.
  • Makes it easy to catalog all of your CD-ROM's, DVD-ROM's, and removable drives.
  • Catalog the full file structure from CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, remote hard-disks, zip drives, USB sticks, etc.
  • Creates beautiful thumbnails of images, movies, PDF document covers, AAC/MP3 album art.
  • Look inside ZIP-files
  • Import Spotlight comments
  • Import CDFinder, WhereIsIt, FileFinder and DiskTracker catalogs
  • Gather meta-data like AAC/MP3 tags, XMP/EXIF/IPTC image info, PDF info, Word/RTF document info.
  • Use smart-catalog folders to store search results just like iTunes.
  • Search in all catalogs for files based on keyword, date, category, size, etc.
  • Mac OS X 10.4 Universal Binary.

What's new in DiskLibrary

Version 1.9.9:
  • Fixes performance issue with scrolling the catalog list

I've used DiskLibrary for years, and haven't been worried that there haven't been updates lately, but today I found out that it crashes at launch on Mac OS Sierra (10.12). Help! My disk database is trapped!

Very cool cataloging application with great functionality and GUI. Since version 1.9 it is very faster, the only slow thing is cataloging with metadata. I'm waiting for version 2 (hopeful that will be for tiger). One thing is absolute: it's better than the cluttered CDFinder!

Application arranges numbers like computers did about 1990: After 10 there's 100 instead of 11 an so on. Not very useful for a backup catalog which is likely to be numbered.

This is a note from the developer of DiskLibrary. There have been some performance issues with searching within DiskLibrary (mainly on Mac OS X 10.4). This should have been resolved with version 1.9. Version 1.9 also adds Quick Look support from within DiskLibrary for Mac OS X 10.5 clients. Thanks, Diederik Hoogenboom

Slow and awful. Why didn't I pony up full price for CDfinder instead of buying this second-rate knock off on promo... Two stars for running at all. If you've never used a decent cataloging application and don't use the image cataloging functions DiskLibrary is better than nothing.

I purchased DiskLibrary a few months ago. I was impressed with it's initial features, but after purchasing and cataloging 30 DVDs I found the launch speed and search speed to be painfully slow. I've been working with one of their technicians for weeks. Emailing back and forth, but there have been no fixes. I was told that the problem was likely due to the number of image files on my discs (but isn't that the whole idea of a preview?). Searching often times results in nothing found (even when I KNOW there is a file name within the search criteria). I would steer clear of this application. In my opinion, it's still in Beta.

i found it too much mouse oriented for my taste. everything needs a mouse click to work. no tabs to switch focus on a particlular field or button. in find mode (command+f) there is no automatic positioning on the search filed (lack of usability) and no way to focus on it via keyboard (what's wrong with fields in this app?). press enter doesn't work in launching the query (you have to click on the button). the nested info panel is barebone and poorly formatted and gives you no info about the metadata. the info panel on command+i is slow to start and close (and keeps on hiding itself). the preview thumb space is filled with the alwayspresentreflectionthing instead of a better thumb to look at (btw, no way to setup your thumb size). nice try but it is long way to home. the price is not justified if you look at competitors.

Nicely done, but if you're a power user of CDFinder and you're looking for a replacement, keep on looking. On the plus side: - CDFinder import. Just make sure that you're running CDFinder in English (temporarily disable all languages except English in CDFinder's Get Info window) while you're exporting your catalogs, because DiskLibrary won't import localized CDFinder export files. - Saved Searches (aka Smart Catalogs), although they're slow, at least on a PowerBook G4/1.67. - catalogs Owner attributes On the minus side: - A single catalog file (Library Data.disklibrary). This may work if you intend to catalog 2 drives and 10 CDs, but I have already over 1000 CDFinder catalogs files occupying over 300 MB disk space. It will be a big pain to maintain all that data in a single file. Especially if you want to synchronize with another Mac or backup your important data regularly: each time you make a single simple change to your database the *whole* big file will change its modification date, i.e. the whole big fat file will be processed on sync/backup! (And yes, I've read about "Compacting the database (Advanced setting)" in the Help file.) - Yet another Image Cache folder with thousands of files... - Won't locate files in Finder with uncommon Unicode characters in their path (e.g. Central European). Is the app using AppleScript to get the location? Because that's exactly the point where AppleScript fails! - Doesn't catalog Finder Labels, Finder Comments, Version, File Type, File Creator, doesn't correctly catalog application bundles. - How do you *update* a catalog? - The search should include "ANY field contains". I can't possibly always remember if a search string is contained in the file name or in the metadata or wherever.

SUPERBLY DONE. I'm swamped with CD's and DVD's of backups, images, old files and documents that may or not be important. There are many competeing products in this realm but none have the interface, ease of use, and speed of Disk Library. By using an iTunes-like interface the developer has achieved the best of all worlds -- loads of information, EXIF, previews, dates, file paths etc. -- with data presented and organized where it can be easily seen and interpreted. The implementation of Smart Folders is awesome. After less than 30 minutes of trial -- the decision to purchase a license was easy -- and the modest shareware fee makes it painless.

Searching has been much approved with the advanced search feature in 1.1.1. The photo preview problem should have been resolved also.

Pretty basic at this time, and crashes very often when reading photo previews. Also, the catalog database gets very large quickly, and I hate it when I must create a smart something to perform a simple search...

Unable to rate at this juncture. I like the idea behind the application - there are other implementations out there, but the iTunes-like interface should fit this purpose very well. Of course, I don't know that for sure yet, because it crashes when trying to catalog media at this point. For me at least. Will keep a close eye on this one.
