History of Filecats

It has been used and is still being used on numerous commissions in house by DAQS Limited.

During these years, it has saved us numerous hours, and has allowed additional commissions to be undertaken.

It is being made available externally for the first time in 2015, to allow you to save time and frustration. It is being marketed and sold by Filecats Limited.

So far, it has won 5-star ratings from Tucows and SoftPedia – see the reviews page for more information.

  • Hey team,

    I am with SHI, an IT solutions reseller, and I have an Academic customer seeking a quote for your software. Do you work with resellers? If so, could I get a quote for one year of Filecat Professional Edition with any discounts related to Academic customers and/or partners? Thank you!

    • We are more than happy to work with resellers. I have emailed you a Priority Code.

      If you are an Academic customer and would like a discount for one year of Filecats Professional or Filecats Metadata, please email me. I’m sorry, but as the price is so low, I cannot offer discounts for Filecats Standard or Filecats Explorer except for bulk purchases.

  • i want to download the standard version to evaluate. I am facing the same problem as before. I get a message that i have already subscribed to the newsletter and keeps me going round in circles. There seems to be a problem.

  • I have created an email catalog in excel using the professional version.
    If i move the folder and the excel to another drive, the data in the spreadsheet disappears.

    i want to send the data and the catalog to a third party.

    I would be most grateful if you could please advise me i can do that?

    Looking forward to hear from you very soon.

    Many thanks


    • I don’t know what you mean – data in a spreadsheet would not disappear because you move a folder.

      If you mean the hyperlinks don’t work, then you need to check the relative path – go to and see the video “Cataloguing CDs and ISO 9001″ for more details.

  • I purchased your Pro product about a month ago. I am trying to extract the metadata from a folder of msg files and your product seem to be a good fit. After having some time to test it out, I find that I am missing some metadata and am a little confused with your selection of the metadata when it comes to the To, CC, BCC, and From with regards to the Display vs Address. I am only interested in the Display metadata and your product does not export the Display of CC, BCC, or From. It only extracts the To Display. Am I missing something? Is the a better way to pick and choose the metadata? Is this something that you could easily and quickly add?

    • I’ve done a catalog of MSG data, with Standard Metadata and Outlook Metadata up to full. Column FU and FV have the BCC and CC – a mixture of Display To and Email – and column FW has Receipients, which includes both Display To and Address.

      I hope that answers your question.

  • Hi I want to try out your program but it needs to install on a network with no internet connection.

    Can this be done ?


    • Yes, it should be possible.

      The program will try to open a “thank you” web page on that computer.

      Go to that web page on another computer, and you should be able to get a license to use on that computer. Use that license on that computer.
