Catalogs files on your disks.

Overview

DiskTracker is a powerful cataloguing utility that helps you keep track of your offline files. If you have a number of removable media disks, DiskTracker is ideal. It will maintain a local directory of the files on the removable disks, and you can search for files without actually having to insert the removable media. The search result resembles the view you would see in the Finder.

Abandonware. It's impossible to buy it, despite it being available for download. It still runs fine on macOS 10.14 Mojave! But it won't run on 10.15 because the app is 32-bit.

For transition to a 64-bit disc cataloguing application:
1) EXPORT your DiskTracker catalogues to text.
2) IMPORT the resulting DiskTracker .dtc.txt file into your intended 64-bit disc cataloguing program.
3) VERIFY the resulting catalogue is accurate and properly formatted. If it's not, try importing it into another cataloguing program.

Experimentation:
It's possible that a database program may more accurately import the .dtc.txt file, then let you export it again into a format that works for your intended 64-bit disc cataloguing program. OR a text editor may be able to reformat your database to be compatible with your intended disc cataloguing program. Be sure to use the correct extension used by the cataloguing program on the reformatted file before attempting to open it. If the reformatted catalogue is still not compatible with the intended cataloguing program, you'll quickly find out.

Thus far, my own experiments have NOT resulted in successful export/import into a new program. I'll keep trying. If others have succeeded, please post!

DiskTracker is still going strong on macOS 10.12 Sierra! No update required.

So with this new update i realized, aside DT being my fave cataloguing app, that it and GraphicConverter are the 2 oldest running apps on my Mac. I'd add IRCle but it's pretty much a 3/4 dead fish swimming in cIRCles.

Acquired as part of the BYOB bundle offer found at Squidoodotcom for $5.95. I have long felt that five to ten bucks seems about right for this kind of app. Basically, it indexes the files on a volume and creates a catalog that can be browsed as though the Finder were being used. Can export a list as a tab or comma delimited text file with headers. Initial indexing is fast. Updates are very fast. Catalog files are reasonable in size. For my media volume which is 300+ GB with I get a 16 MB catalog file that took about 5 minutes to build.

I've recently put this to use by recovering in seconds, a 4 year old piece of email data long gone from my laptop. My employer has unsuccessfully been trying to recover this same piece of data from its its expensive and convoluted windoze based backup system for over 2 months. Last year I "upgraded" and imported my DT data to CD Finder but whilst CD Finder is regularly maintained and excellently supported, I still found myself coming back to DT as it eschews eye candy and focuses on just finding that all important file - it basically works the same as the excellent app Find Any File. I'm grateful the developers are continuing maintaining it and hope they continue to do so.

ABOUT WHAT I SAID ABOUT THIS SOFTWARE, and what I just wrote to the developer : "Dear "Portents, Llc" (Developer), I deeply apologize for what I said on MacUpdate (PPC Application). It's alright, your software is an Universal one (I'll remove what's not Intel). I'll correct it on MacUpdate.com (IT'S DONE NOW). With my kind regards, Olivier Herrbach PS : I CAN'T (not possible here) to give 5 to third and fourth. WHY ?
