Archive catalogs the content of your removable media and devices such as CDs, DVDs, Flash Memory Drives, HDs, etc. so you can quickly find the information you are looking for even when those devices are no longer connected to your Mac.

Key features include:

• Fast catalog engine: Archive displays a progress bar as it rapidly catalogs the contents of any media or device you select.

• Quick searching: Find files from one or all of your catalogs by name or extension, or create and save advanced custom searches by multiple criteria including file name, extension, kind, label, creation date, modification date, file size and file path.

• Catalog update & renaming: If you select a device already in your catalogs, Archive offers to update or rename the catalog.

• Multi-column browsing: Can't remember what you called a file? Archive lets you easily browse your catalog contents.

• Detailed info: Archive displays file names, locations, creation & modified dates, size and labels.

• Sidebar for easy access: Archive provides a central location to select your devices, catalogs, and saved searches.

• File launching: Found what you were looking for? Connect the device and Archive can launch it for you with the appropriate app.

• Home sweet home: Save time and space by having Archive catalog only the home folder of your startup device(s).

• Archive 5 & 6 catalog import: Don't have time to catalog your devices right away? Quickly import your old catalog data from prior versions of Archive.

• Checkpoints: Archive keeps a log of key points in the code as it runs which can be useful when tracking down bugs. It also records the speed as it passes checkpoints which may be useful for future optimizations.

• Feedback: I want to hear from you. Archive has a built-in interface to send your comments, questions, suggestions and bug reports. You can even attach the current checkpoint log.

• File Security: Archive lets you optionally password protect your catalog with advanced blowfish encryption routines in Mac OS X.

• Help: With the built-in help interface you can browse topics in the contents list or search as you type to quickly find the answers you need.

What's New in Version 7.0.4

• Change to search behavior to run after pressing return or enter instead of as-you-type.

• Fixes issue with Mac OS X version number not showing up properly in feedback window under OS X 10.8 or later.

Catalog my drives

I have a couple dozen external hard drives from the last few years. What's on which drive? I have been looking for this program for a while. This is it! It works. It is simple. And so far seems very quick.

I would like to be able to print out my searches and have not yet figured out if that is possible.

works as advertised, is fast but lacks auto-update features

I purchased Archive to give it a try.
I do like the simplicity of it and given that it created a catalog of a 500Gb drive in less than a minute I am satisfied with the speed.
The only negative thing is that there is no automatic catalog updating so if you add some files to your archive you have to then remember to update the catalog of your archive.
Hopefully the developers will add this feature in a future release!

Archive doesn’t work

Waste of time and money.
This App simple doesn’t work.
An embaserment to the Apps Store.
Whoever checks these Apps at Apple and approves them should look again at the functioality of this product.
No support from Yenco.
Emailed the support page with error info and requested an explanation.
Yenco should give refunds for nonfunctioning products.
I used KDX disk catalog for years and was able to keep track of lots of drives and files.
Yenco’s Archive says “Sqlite failed with error 11 (database disk image is malformed” for my drives.
I would like a refund.
