Sometimes, you need a file list in order to have the index of all the images in a folder, or a list of songs that you are writing to a CD. This way, you don’t have to go through the folder again in order to know the name and number of files that were in it. A file list can also be used when you have to send the only the name of some items over a network. For instance, if you are working on a project, and you want to check if you and another developer has the same files, instead of sending the whole project archive, you can just create a file list and send it to the other person. They can then match it with the files in their own system, and see if any important file is missing. However, if there are a lot of files in the folder, creating their file list manually becomes a very tedious and time taking job. Filelist Creator
is a portable application for Windows that allows you to quickly create file lists. Other than the file name, you can include extended information about the file, such as its format, size, date created, accessed and changed, file attributes, associated applications and file paths. It also features a built-in file renamer. Details just past the fold.
Organizing folders that contain thousands of files surely takes a lot of effort and time, as one has to manually move files to separate folders, and then perform required file management operations.

A few days back, we covered Smart Dialer

right on your phone. With the White Pages app, you don't even have to know a business place's name in order to get information about it. The app lists everything in neat categories, and you can can usually get to the perfect place by simply navigating through the various categories listed in the app. White Pages works for both businesses and people, and you can perform reverse searches on it as well, meaning you will need to put in any phone number to view all its relevant details.

From time to time we need to analyze and find the files and folders that are taking the most space. Windows will only show the amount of space that is taken and free in a local drive, but it is impossible to determine which folders are taking the most space, specially when you have hundreds of folders with thousands of files.
