OK here is my situation. I have like 400 CD's and DVD's of archived files that I need to keep around. The problem is that many of the files are not grouped organized or easily referenced for any purpose! I am looking for some type of "browseable/searchable" database proggy to keep track of this. One of the areas I work in at work is our tape library which archives ALL of our files on magnetic tape. The system creates or determines what volume control number goes with what making it very easy to retrive data at a latet time. Ideally what I would like to be able to do is assign a number for a disc (or have the computer choose one) such as 120543 and so on in sucsession so I can organize them on a shelf but have the computer retain a browseable/searchable "virtual" directory of sorts. I have seen this for mp3 and image files but not much else. Am I making any sense here? Basically on my screen it would be just like looking through a hard drive. The icons and file/folders look the same only if you tried to actually open/execute a file it would request a disc that the info is on. Then you could easily find disc 120543 on the shelf and have your file. Anybody know where I can find cataloging software like this for the XP Pro platform?
