Hello everyone,
 
This is my first post here.
 
I have a lot of external drives, with a lot of data on them. Now I would like to know if there's an application that let you make an index of an hard drive. That way, I can have an index of all my drives with all the directories. If I need to find a file I don't need to plug each drive in and search on the drive, but I could just look in the index.
Does such a program exist?
 
Please let me know if something is not clear.
Thanks!
 
Jens

Hi jensvde :)

There's already a built-in indexing feature in Windows. Simply search for "index" in the Windows Start Menu (Windows Vista and 7) or in the Search bar (Windows 8, 8.1) and you'll come across "Indexing Options". From there, you can add the folders and drives you want to the indexing and rebuild the index including these locations after :)

Thanks for the reply! But does it also work when the drives aren't connected to the system? Because I can only connect 2 drives at once

I cannot say for sure to be honest. So you basically want a "cached copy" of the content of your drives, so you can check it out even thought your drives aren't connected. Put this way, I don't know a software which can do that. Maybe Everything, but I'm not sure.
