Need a tool to create a map of live site

Hi Experts,

I recently worked on site to convert the menus from java to xhtml/css and after I closed the project and got paid I was told by the client that I missed 16 pages that had the old menus.

Honest mistake, I didn't know the pages existed.  So I think that could have been avoided by: a) stepping through all pages and noting the links and menus b) find a program that will index the site for me and give me a list/map of all pages withing the site.

Option (a), doing it by hand takes a lot of time and still leave room for error.  So I'd like to use some software to do this for me.  Any suggestions on a web app or windows software to create a site map?  I usually use Expression Web 4 but I also have Dreamweaver CS4 if that help any.... I have VS 2010 Ultimate as well in case there may be a tool in there too.  

Any ideas?

Thanks,

HNM
