Octopus DVD Indexer
Octopus is a free and portable CD and DVD indexer that can be used to index all CDs and DVDs to be able to search all CDs and DVDs at once.The software has been designed to be as easy going as possible. To index a new CD or DVD one simply puts it into the drive and presses the Read Volume button to read the contents of that CD or DVD.
Indexing a CD or DVD takes only a second the most. It is really fast and will record folders, file names, file sizes, creation dates and attributes. Essentially the full structure of each CD or DVD that is indexed that way. Files can be linked to keywords to make the search even more efficient.
All indexed volumes can be searched in the same interface. The search supports wildcards and a few advanced search parameters like searching specific dates or file sizes.
Octopus should work on most Windows operating systems. Alternatives are the fast and tiny disk catalog software Cathy or Visual CD.Advertisement
