Hi there,

At our office we (much like everyone else) have literally terabytes of external harddrive space across sever external harddrive. The problem? No idea what is on them.

Now obviously we can open up finder and read the contents but that requires us getting the drive out, plugging it in, scrolling through it, etc. That's fine for the first go but two months down the line when we want to find something its less than ideal.

Is there a simple app for Mac OS X that allows you to catalogue the contents of your external harddrives? I had one back in my PowerPC days but it's long since fallen out of use.

Essentially I want to be able to have a catalogue of all of the drives which could be searched and in a pinch printed so that we can simply do a find operation for the file in question and immediately know "Oh, its on DRIVE XX".

If anyone knows of a solution it would be GREATLY appreciated.
