How to catalog for machines without Microsoft Office
Filecats Explore and Filecats Metadata
There’s now no need to have Excel to use our programs. New for 2015, Filecats Explore allows you to incorporate the information shown in Windows Explorer into a table, so you can investigate or copy and paste the data. Also, the metadata extractor Filecats Metadata can include up to several hundred document properties for each file.
With a couple of clicks, Filecats Explore and Filecats Metadata can create a table of your data from Windows Explorer, allowing you to sort, filter and create analyses of your data, as well as copying and pasting it into other applications.
The cataloguer Filecats Explore for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 imports information shown in Windows Explorer, such as Date Created and Accessed, Path, Filename, Size and Attributes, along with file and folder hyperlinks.
The cataloguer and metadata extractor Filecats Metadata for Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 goes much further, importing dozen of hidden document properties, such as:
Because they are hidden away, document properties, also known as metadata, can be hard to organise and investigate. However, the metadata extractor Filecats Metadata can extract them from files in Windows Explorer such as:
- Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents,
- Microsoft Outlook MSG files (such as emails),
- Images and photos (including locational data) and
- media files.
Document properties are added to files to enable a computer or device to interpret the data, and are often added without your knowledge. Important metadata include:
- Document creator, Title and When Last Printed for Office files,
- Picture dimensions, camera used and other photo properties (such as flash, aperture etc.),
- GPS co-ordinates,
- Email subject, attachments and message body for MSG files,
- and much more.
Filecats Metadata for Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 allows you to investigate the powerful metadata (hidden document properties) contained inside files, and lets you use it to your advantage. It is an extremely powerful tool for harnessing the hidden depths of information you already have, but may not know that you have, or which may be difficult for you to use.
