For the various occasions, lists of files or directories are required: perhabs you need an index of some files or folders on a CD, you would like to send a list to a colleague or you want to publish a list on the Internet.
Creating such a list, however, takes time. It is tedious to list all the files and folders by hand, especially if it is about 100 oder 1000 files. Certainly, another way leads through various computer commands in the command prompt, but very few know about this or are satisfied with the created output format.
The easiest way is to use the Filelist Creator, which you can download on this website for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. With this program, it is not much more effort! It is enough to simply drag files from a folder to the program or open a folder directly and your files are listed automatically. When doing this, it is your choice whether only files, only directorys or both, files and directories should be listed.
Of course, despite this simplicity, you can use many optional settings. You can determine which columns are used in which form in the table, you can specify how the design should look like and beyond, you can adjust the output as you need it: as XLSX or ODS spreadsheet for Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice, as HTML website, as an image, a CSV file, or, of course, as plain text.
In addition to general file and folder properties such as name, format, type, size, path, path length or folder level, also specific properties of audio files (for example, artist, title, album, track number, duration or genre), video files (such as width, height, duration, or FPS), images (like width, height, color depth, or resolution) or text files (encoding, BOM, line break type, number of lines or characters) can be listed just by checking the corresponding option in the columns list. Which of these columns in which format should be included in your file list, can be determined by yourself.
The Filellist Creator is fully compatible with Unicode. This means that you can easily create lists of files that contain Unicode characters and you can use Unicode in all settings, such as in the headings of columns. Even when you save your list, all common Unicode formats and the ANSI format is supported (see file formats).
You can download the program on our download page for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux and you can learn in the help section, how you can benefit from the program. The FilelistCreator is portable, you can use it directly and without an installation.
