WhereIsIt is an application written for Windows operating systems, and designed to help you maintain and organize a catalog of your computer media collection, including CD-ROMs, audio CDs, diskettes, removable drives, hard drives, network drives, DVDs, or any other present or future storage media Windows can access as a drive.
The primary goal for WhereIsIt is to provide access to the contents of cataloged disks, even when they are not available on the system, or even not your own. You can browse their contents, search for items you need, use imported descriptions and thumbnails, and organize data using categories, flags etc.
WhereIsIt can be used to handle any kind of data, including downloaded programs, magazine CD-ROMs, music collections like MP3s or audio CDs, graphics collections, document backups, etc. WhereIsIt can handle lots of them, too, a couple hundreds or thousands disks in a catalog is nothing unusual, yet catalogs remain reasonably small, single-filed and easy to transfer or send to other users. You can also create more than one catalog, and at any time open and work with as many catalogs at once as needed.
WhereIsIt is easy to use for both beginners and advanced users. It features a familiar and well thought-out, Explorer-like user interface, combined with strong searching and reporting capabilities, multi-language support, automated description and thumbnails importing through extendable plugins from more than 70 different sources, and much more.
During the last eleven years, more than 100.000 users have chosen WhereIsIt.
The latest version of WhereIsIt 3.92 has a new capability, it can store its settings either in Windows registry, or in separate configuration files. Automatic selection of the appropriate mode together with some other changes opens the door for using the program as a portable software, without having to be installed, but run from media like USB keys and CD-ROMs. WhereIsIt is now also downloadable without installation program just for such cases.
Other changes in this version are improved File Management functions, improved drag&drop support between different catalogs, and several new plugins, covering Microsoft's XPS document file format and different kinds of gadgets and widgets.
