WinCatalog 2009
« on: March 12, 2009, 04:49:16 AM »
Will be soon (March 16th) on BdJ http://www.bitsdujou...are/wincatalog-2008/ with 50% discount.  Seems a rather nice tool to me, I personnaly rely on the free lite version - for the moment.

are you familiar with any other catalogers that you could compare it with ?

As in, the upgrade from 2008 to 2009 is free OR you have to pay full price? I'm guessing the former, but thought I'd ask to be sure  :)

I tried just a few from your review at http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=7764.0
I used for quite some time ADC from ElcomSoft.  I stopped using it when I noticed that it had trouble scanning withing multi-part zip archives, whereas WCL does this fine.  I still miss some features from ADC such as displaying the free space on a media in the status bar.

Also, updating a media can be very long and CPU intensive with WCL, it was quick with ADC.

WinCatalog 2013/2014 upgrade
« Reply #7 on: October 16, 2013, 04:50:07 AM »
They're pushing an upgrade offer to WinCatalog 2013 (including to 2014 when released) for ~$15
(if you have an older version, you should get the offer per email)
It seems to be still updated regularly - http://www.wincatalo...ory/wincatalog-2013/

do people still use disk catalogers? :) I have to admit I dont, but suspect I should...
I had this briefly installed once, but then the machine died, and I didnt install in new one.
Anyone still using it?

thanks for the quick response! I'm curious: why do you use two similar apps?

Redundancy I guess.  Cathy has a reduced set of features, but is very fast & compact, WinCatalog 2013, well, it's the opposite.  I get the best of both worlds and it's really not time consuming to use Cathy as well.

I have a license for WinCatalog 2011, but never really used it.  I wanted a cataloguer that would automatically import FILE_ID.DIZ and FILES.BBS data as descriptions in its catalogue, and it didn't do that.

This programme seems to be continually updated :up:
Paid upgrade seems to be only every few years (if you own 2011 version it is still a free upgrade to 2015 version).

2015 version (including updates - "for noncommercial use") currently on offer for $14.99 this week via SharewareOnSale.
