Hellow people
The title of my post : Can you recommend a program to identify all archives in a file and generate a list of them ??? I would use it to make a list of songs I have in diferent files. Or maybe movies too.
Sometimes I want recommend songs in the forum and this will help me.

Do you use something like that ???

In Windows you can do it from the command line

Open the top level folder you want to index with cd (eg: enter cd z:\user\doucments\music)

Then use the command 'dir' to generate a list within cmd

If you want it to generate a text file you can work with, run 'dir /s listmyfiles.txt'

It can take quite a while to run, so be prepared to hit return & then go eat dinner or something.

I've used that at work a few times to index messy corporate shared drives, but I'm sure there's an equivalent macos / linux command too, if that's your poison. Happily never had to do it at home !

Oh understood, programs designed to do something that your system can already do usually are horrible

These tutorials should help - the first one shows you how to get the command line open & what to do, and the second gives you the various options depending on what kind of list you want to see
