In the first place, you will have to create the catalog where you will save your files: select the folder that contains them, and if you want, add a tag or comment. If you put in a CD, Cathy automatically includes all the files' data. Once you have all the files organized, the searches will be quick and simple.
Cathy allows you to search by name, size or date, allowing you to ignore the temporary files. You will be able to export the entire structure of the folder to a TXT file or easily locate the duplicated files.
Try out Cathy and keep all your multimedia material well organized and available for whenever you need it.
