NeoFinder 6.0

NeoFinder 6.0 is a Cocoa rewrite of Norbert Doerner’s venerable CDFinder. It looks like a great update, although I have less need for offline disk cataloging these days. I’ve transferred the contents of all my archival DVDs (software disk images, old project data, videos, music, etc.) to a few multi-terabyte hard drives. When I need to find a file, I can just stick the relevant drive into the Voyager S3 and then search it with EagleFiler.

The switch from DVD to bare drives for archiving hasn't totally erased my need for offline catalog software. It's still really nice to have an overview and search without having to pop a bunch of drives into the toaster.

No experience with NeoFinder, but I'm a fan of the extremely venerable (for Mac since March 22, 1993) Japanese DiscCatalogMaker app Roxio smartly bundles with Toast. Works nice. Good search and good browser. No frills, but no hassles.

If my needs were to expand, I'd look at NeoFinder.

@Chucky I was always a CDFinder guy, but DiskCatalogMaker is good, too. There are a bunch of newer catalogers that just can’t handle large numbers of files like the venerable apps. So it’s great to have a solid/fast engine combined with a spiffy new interface.
