It doesn't seem to work when attempting to export file list from external HDDs unfortunately - I’ve tried with internal HDD & a removable SD card which both worked. But expect to not get results if you're attempting to export from an external HDD. I emailed the developer about this particular issue but never received a response.

Needs to support list to folders. I am disabled and typing out 100s of folders or copying and pasting folder by folder get tedious and hard for me. thanks

Wonderful app. I was able to take a folder filled with thousands of home movies and export it to an Excel spreadsheet. Works flawlessly and I highly recommend it.

In the past I’ve used Print Window to print a list of files in a folder.
This time I tried File List Export.

This app failed on all fronts, so I highly recommend you stick to Print Window. It may cost 4x as much, but it WORKS!

I wanted to print a list of nearly 11,000 image names and their dimensions, but the entire Dimensions column is blank. Not one image has its dimensions listed, even though Finder and Path Finder both show them.
The Date Added, width, height, total pixels, height DPI, width DPI, columns are also blank.

But another problem for me is that it only exports the list - it won’t print it. I’ve never needed to export a file list, but I have needed to print one to send to someone. You can only print the exported file after opening it in another app.
To be fair, the description only says it exports, but it would be helpful if it also printed the list.

I saved the info shown in xml format then opened it in Preview. It looked fine, but each time I used the Print function the preview was blank. I exported to pdf and it opened as a single, blank page.

I opened the xml file in Numbers and a warning appeared, saying the Cambria font isn’t available in OS X, so it was replaced with New Times Roman.
Why would the dev. use a font not available on Mac?

Numbers successfully exported the file to a 1835 page pdf.
But that’s an extra step for me - Print Window lets me select the data I want and print straight to pdf.

As a final test I opened a folder of tv episodes. All the video information was unlisted.
Duration, audio bitrate, video bitrate, total bitrate, codecs, width, height, date added, ALL BLANK!
Why include the columns if they'll never display anything?
