Index Hard Drives

Over the years, I have accumlated numerous hard drives all with data on them I want to keep. (Old customer accounts, files, etc... things that I will probably never need again, but need to keep in case I need the oddball thing off them).

Is there a program that runs on Mac that will index the filetree of these drives in a datbase, so that later when I go looking for a file, I can search the database, and it will tell me which hard drive it was on?

This would require that I either give the hard drives friendly names in the database and / or label the hard drive in real life.

My personal opinion choice here is DiskTracker ( I have used it for many years.

While it is not the prettiest interface it has great search abilities and is quite fast in searching.

I use simple numbering 0001 and up for the names of the disks. You have to label the disks on the outside.

It's a shareware so you can try it out before investing.
