If the PDF has the proper metadata in it, you might be able to use my own PDFInfoGUI application for your purposes.

Some file managers will offer previews.  I use xplorer2, but there are freebies out there.  Like Total Commander.  http://www.ghisler.com/  Does anyone know if TC will preview PDFs as native?

PDFInfoGUI gives information about the pdf type : image under the field subject.
My target is locate these files at first place to put after metatags or something to help me to identify the contents of those files without moving or renaming them.
No preview. Only find the image PDF

I have analyzed the files with PDFInfoGUI. They have no creation date and are scanned documents by me.

With PDFInfoGUI i can see the metatags, but not create.

REally my post come from another one asking for catalog soft like WhereIsIt or the possibility to create searchables pdf after locating them with soft like Solid PDF Tools or similar.

How can I modify the fields Keywords, tagged ?

For my scanned documents is enough. I usually have in the year folder. I can locate easily.
But I also received scanned documents from other people.
PDFInfoGUI is able to scan an entire disk Y:
I am checking the time with an almost full disk of 2 TB, and in the future 3 TB or more.....

PDF Preview
http://www.win7pdf.com/pdf-preview.html

I'll take a look .
Best Regards

It seems to view thumbnails under windows 7.
I use windows xp pro + sp3 and have the problem solved with Adobe Acrobat 7
I can preview the pdf files, but I don't know how to preview and the knowledge to decide if the pdf is searchable or an image pdf.
Best Regards

I am going to investigate if TC preview PDF as native.
Really I am not interested in preview the pdf. Only determine if is a searchable PDF or an image PDF.
I will comment
 :P


It's shareware. I prefer a freeware.  :(

At about 23.45 hours PDFInfoGUI begins to present the pdf files from my unit Y:
Obviously will take time. Even is counting the number and summing of all the pdf files located.....

 :-*

I am observing, as Skwire tells above, that many of the pdf located have metadata failing, or not filling the field subject.....

I received a pdfinfo.exe error but the processing seems continues.

I have no idea if is related to PDFInfoGUI. So I invoked the Task Administrator.
I put the screenshots. May be help. I don't know.

PDFInfoGUI continues its work and I haven't observed nothing strange.
