For System 6.x - Mac OS 9

FileList+ version 1.0b21, from February, 1992. This was to be the final beta release as a freeware disk cataloger before going commercial (did this ever eventuate?).

So What is FileList+?
In short, FileList+ is a blazing fast file and disk organizer, with powerful offline file search and sort capabilities.

FileList+ reads entire volumes for file information then lists and saves the volume and file information it collects. There is an option that enables "StuffIt" (Classic and Deluxe) and/or "Compactor" archives to be opened and to be treated like a folder: all files in the archive (including encrypted entries) will be listed. Selected folders may also be scanned.
The collected information may be viewed, sorted by multiple criteria, searched for, saved as text files (to be printed later on, or to be imported into other applications such as spreadsheats and databases). Entire volumes may be deleted from a list or renamed. There is an automatic disk insert/eject mode, meaning any inserted disk (be it a floppy, cartridge, or CD-ROM disk) gets scanned then ejected, or any mounted volume can be added by selecting from a list of on-line volumes.

FileList+ is especially useful for managing LARGE quantities of files, on one or many disks. It can be used to quickly locate files. Others uses FileList+ offers include the elimination of file duplications and conformation of file backups. FileList+ can perform a comparison of the files to detect duplicate files or to detect files that are different versions of other files, such as older or newer versions of the same application.

FileList+ is an extremely enhanced version of FileList (version 1.4). The original FileList is from Erny Tontlinger. The standard features of the original FileList are completely intact. If you are a previous user of FileList, you will be happy to know that FileList+ reads and can write files compatible with the original FileList.

FileList+ was developed with Think™ C Version 5.0 and every attempt has been made to adhere strictly to Inside Macintosh guidelines. It has been tested under Systems 6.0.5, 6.0.7, 7.0 and 7.01•, but should work under any version after 6.0.0, on any Macintosh model. HFS (Hierarchical File System) is required, but MFS (Macintosh File System) disks are supported. The more memory allocated to FileList+, the more files it can accommodate, but 384K is sufficient for most users.

Excerpt adapted from "FileList+ User's Manual".

FileList+ will run on any Macintosh capable of running a classic Mac OS from System 6.0 through Mac OS 9.2.2 - It may be necessary to increase the RAM requirements of FileList+ if scanning volumes larger than 10 GB in size.
