The installation of FolderScavenger is easy and intuitive, you can place the program files where you want.

I guess that your first thought might be why would they name a program FolderScavenger? Well because that is what it does in a way. It is a program that will easily give you a list of the contents of a folder about any way you could possibly want it. In a really user friendly way too.

When you open FolderScavenger you are give a window in which you define what aspects of a Folder you want to capture and in what format. You can even preview the output before exporting it.

Here is what the people at Bytesmith say about the options:
FolderScavenger Pro makes it easy to print folder listings, or copy folder listings to the clipboard and paste them into Word, Excel, or any Windows application. It's easy to filter listings by file name, and to capture the contents of subfolders. You can select the format for paths, file date and time stamps, and many other aspects of the folder listings. FolderScavenger Pro lets you specify if you want to capture the information as simple text, comma-separated records, or tab-delimited data. By creating style templates, you can turn folder lists into XML, HTML, or a number of custom text formats. You can even convert directory listings into MySQL files.

There are two editions of FolderScavenger. The Free and the Professional. Here is the difference:
The Free Edition offers basic functionality and can be used free of charge for personal purposes. If you use FolderScavenger for business, government, or professional purposes you should use the Professional Edition. Additionally to all features of the Free Edition, the Professional Edition lets you:

Invoke programs of your choice on all files in a folder.
Get Song Title, Album and Artist information from mp3 files.
Save your frequently used configurations so you can easily reuse them at a later time.
Quickly print folder listings from the context menu just by choosing a printer.
Operate FolderScavenger in "No Questions Asked" manner, by just invoking FolderScavenger from the context menu with the default configuration that you have saved.
Use powerful template based style to generate any kind of text as formatted files like for instance html or xml.

Well if you are waiting for me to tell you the bad news about FolderScavenger there isn't any. The price is certainly right, it is really easy to use, it has lots of features and it has a really cool icon..
