MP3s, videos, etc - fre app for cataloguing drive contents?


I would like to find a piece of freeware that will allow me to do the following for my MP3 and movie collection on my hard drive

1. Scan drive or selected folders

2. Show report listing all files found (name, size, etc)

3. Ability to export the results into Excel or a database app so I can create running catalogue

Any suggestions for apps or methods to do this?

Thanks !

Bob - thanks, SysExporter looks like it might do the job,
but I scanned it at http://www.virscan.org/ and couple other sites and it looks like it contains viruses/malware

Any other suggestions?

It's safe...

Most of Nirsoft's utilities are flagged by one scanner or another as potentially dangerous because they perform action such as revealing passwords and product keys, intercept keystrokes, etc. However, those are false-positives...SysExporter is safe/uninfected and a good tool for the job.
