Freeing Up HD Space by Reference files!

I didn't know where to post this but it is related to my Workflow. As I do not use an Excel spreadsheet, I'm looking for a possible program that can take exported video files (keeping file name structure) and create a simple reference file so I can delete those exported files leaving an exact file name but in different form.

I'm basically looking for a batch converter to create a simple jpg or anything that I can use my DB program to search a file name quickly if I need to go back to it later on (whether I need to re-export the file again is fine).

Anyone know anything I could use besides creating a jpg for each file manually?

Think in terms of getting asset management software. There are a few candidates out there: some are really good, others are duds. Hopefully someone with actual experience in this area will chime in.

i've no hands on experience, but those who do speak favourably of it.
