Disk Explorer Professional Comments

about Disk Explorer Professional Jun 2015

Personally I have one more complaint about this great software tool. How can I create volume with double subvolume inside? I Mean I want to create one parent disc volume which will contain two subvolumes. I need it for double-sided disks.

about Disk Explorer Professional Jun 2015

I can see with full responsibility that this software here is a brilliant chunk of electronic program code. Only it can compete with proprietary "Where Is It". It has every single important feature which we need from this kind of software. If you are not agree, I ask you to point me another completely free software with this great workability.
Only one complaint I can quietly speak here is that latest version is very old, it is from far distant 2010...

Powerful filter system for all your cataloging needs

Positive Comment by Damian_Adelle
about Disk Explorer Professional and Total Commander Nov 2013

I have tried several other programs for cataloging my boxes of DVD's, CDs and HDDs, like CdCat, Virtual Volumes View and others, and while they did the main job, I felt I left something out, like something was missing. The filters of this program are all I needed, because thanks to the thumbnails and metadata the filters can collect, you feel more in control of your files and stuff, the virtual system has it's own categories (very useful if you are like my that have hundreds of external media lying around with random content), and if that wasn't enough, you can export your databases in several formats, for example, a full HTML page with all the volumes you have and if you want to share the catalog for someone who doesn't have the program and is lazy to install, you can create an auto-exe read-only file so they can check your files without the program itself. It even integrates with the program Total Commander, so you can check Disk Explorer Professional 3 files (.ded) within the same interface. So if you are a fan of Total Commander, and need a more detailed library of your external files in a small container, this is the program for you. Oh, and I loved the startup sound.
