Introduction to Filecats, the Cataloguing programme, Saving you Time and Frustration. Filecats imports Windows Explorer information into Microsoft Excel, quickly and easily. Filecats Professional also imports metadata. Emails are at the heart of Microsoft Outlook MSG files, and Filecats Professional is able to swiftly extract the metadata from Windows Explorer to a spreadsheet. Here you can see important email data such as the Client Submit Time -- that's the time that the email was sent or received; who received it; how the ccs and bbcs were; who sent it. This cataloguing is very useful if you have received a batch of msg emails. Recently I catalogued over 160,000 emails which had been sent to a client as part of litigation, and I was able to swiftly and easily obtain important information, so that the lawyers could work with the information very quickly, saving them, and the client, time and money. There is also additional metadata available, such as whether a Delivery Report was requested, whether it was marked as private. You can also export the Body text of the email into a spreadsheet as well, allows you to search and filter for specific emails, together with hyperlinks to open the original email.

Introduction to Filecats, the Cataloguing programme, Saving you Time and Frustration. Filecats imports Windows Explorer information into Microsoft Excel, quickly and easily. Filecats Professional also imports metadata. Filecats Professional is able to swiftly extract metadata from pictures and photographs into an Excel spreadsheet for your use. Pictures have some very basic metadata, such as number of pixels used and the amount of compression used in JPEGs. Photographs have a lot more metadata, because they are set by the camera or mobile phone which has been used to create the photo. Common photo metadata include: the date and time that the camera believes the photograph was taken (this is dependent on the camera having been set up correctly, of course). The camera manufacturer and model. The aperature. The brightness, digital zoom, flash and focal length. However, there is a host of less common photograph metadata (which may or may be set by the camera) which might be interesting in specific circumstances, such as the Lens manufacturer, any related sound files (some camera allow you to record 20 seconds of sound when taking the picture). There is also GPS data, which is the subject of another video. Filecats Professional is able to easily retrieve this metadata into a spreadsheet and make it available for you to use.

Filecats.co.uk - Cataloguing CDs and ISO 9001
 
03:54
Introduction to Filecats, the Cataloguing programme, Saving you Time and Frustration. Filecats imports Windows Explorer information into Microsoft Excel, quickly and easily. Filecats Professional also imports metadata. Filecats makes creating cataloguing of CDs very easy, and I do this every time I send out a CD or USB memory stick. This way I have a permanent record of what I am sending out, there can be no dispute about it as far as I'm concerned, and the recipient doesn't need the Filecats programme in order to use it. This has saved me on more than one occasion in the past, when the recipient swears that he has loaded all of my data onto his computer, and because he has found a problem, therefore there would have been a problem with my data. However, because I had this record, I was able to ascertain that he had not loaded over a thousand files onto his computer, and therefore he should re-load the data. It solved the problem. However, when you create a CD, you will find that what your CD drive might be the "D" drive, but their CD drive might be the "E" drive. Also, they might want to load the contents of your CD onto their network, and therefore these hyperlinks need to be updated. In cell G1 you can see the original path where the files were catalogued from. If I was to save this in a different location, say the "L" drive [do so], you can see that my hyperlinks are unchanged. They are fixed as being based on the original path. However, if I go cell F1, a drop-down box appears. If I click that, I can change from the "Original Path" to the location where the spreadsheet is saved. Now cell G1 changes to the L drive, and all of the hyperlinks refer to the new path. This is very useful if you save the spreadsheet in the root of the catalogued data, for instance on a CD. If someone loads the CD using a different drive letter, the path will be automatically updated. You can also put in a custom path [click arrow], and type in your custom path in the "Input" spreadsheet in cell B5. Now all of the hyperlinks use the custom path. This is how you can use Filecats for CDs: catalogue the files, change the path to the "spreadsheet path", and burn the catalogue into the root of the CD. The path will then change to your recipient's CD drive. He can also upload the entirety of the CD to his computer, and the hyperlinks will still have the right relative path. It also helps you with your I_S_O 9001 requirements, keeping a permanent record of what has been sent. The danger of saying "I sent this folder" is that folders get updated, whether it be in a week's time or a month's time, and so you no longer have the certainty of knowing what you sent. Filecats.

Introduction to Filecats, the Cataloguing programme, Saving you Time and Frustration. Filecats imports Windows Explorer information into Microsoft Excel, quickly and easily. Filecats Professional also imports metadata. Filecats Professional is able to swiftly extract metadata from pictures and photographs into an Excel spreadsheet for your use. Included in that is GPS data, which some mobile phones and cameras can record. They can be very useful in finding out whether a photograph was taken in the place it is said it was taken in. For example, I was given a number of photographs that were said to be taken in the East Midlands. However, on checking the metadata, some of them were apparently taken in North Wales, several hundred miles away. The most interesting of the GPS data are the co-ordinates, the longitude and latitude. However, there is other data which might be of use, such as the altitude and the direction the camera was facing. Filecats Professional is able to easily retrieve this metadata into a spreadsheet and make it available for you to use. Filecats Professional.

Filecats.co.uk - Practice Direction 31B
 
02:53
Introduction to Filecats, the Cataloguing programme, Saving you Time and Frustration. Filecats imports Windows Explorer information into Microsoft Excel, quickly and easily. Filecats Professional also imports metadata. Practice Direction 31B relates to the disclosure of electronic documents in court cases in the United Kingdom, but there are similar directions around the world. Paragraph 31 states how the documents are to be disclosed. Let's see how Filecats can help you with achieving this. "(1) Disclosure data should be set out in a single, continuous table or spreadsheet, each separate column containing exclusively one of the following types of disclosure data -- (a) disclosure list number (sequential) (b) date (c) document type (d) author_sender (e) recipient (f) disclosure list number of any parent or covering document; ... Dates should be set out in a specific format, and data should be set out in a consistent manner." So let's have a look at how Filecats Professional can assist. Looking at this catalogue of Microsoft Office documents, we have a disclosure list number, we have a date, we have a type, we have the author of the document, both the individual's name and the company's name. We don't have a recipient, because for Word and Excel it is very difficult to see who it has been sent to. Therefore, it would be necessary to create a column for Recipient, and open the documents individually using the hyperlink and fill in this column. Now let's have a look at a catalogue of emails, exported to Windows Explorer as MSG files. Here we have a disclosure list number, the date, document type, the sender, and here we do have the recipient as well. You also have attachments. This could be useful if you need a list of the attachments and their parent or covering document. So Filecats can indeed assist with creating a catalogue complying with Practice Direction 31B.

Filecats.co.uk - Metadata Introduction
 
04:04
Introduction to Filecats, the Cataloguing programme, Saving you Time and Frustration. Filecats imports Windows Explorer information into Microsoft Excel, quickly and easily. Filecats Professional also imports metadata. Filecats Professional allows you to investigate the powerful metadata contained inside files, and lets you use it for your advantage. It is an extremely powerful tool for harnessing the hidden depths of information you already have, but may not know that you have, or which may be difficult you to use. But what is metadata? Metadata is information which is stored inside a file, which is often created by the computer or device, but is sometimes created by the end user, which assists the computer in identifying attributes, and allows you to find important information, such as when the file was last saved, who originally created the file, where and when a camera believes a picture was taken. If you have a look at this Microsoft Word document in Windows Explorer, you can see some of the metadata, for example, the title, author, subject, comments and total editing time. However, this is not the totality of the metadata, and you can see more by right-hand clicking on it and going to Properties and Details. Here you can see for example that it has 101 words, 582 characters, was created used the template "Normal". Rather than having to look at the properties for 1,000 documents, you can create a catalogue and get this metadata into a spreadsheet, so you can view them en masse, search and filter through them. Looking at this photograph, you can see metadata such as the time that it was taken, its dimensions, the camera make and model, and the exposure time. Again, this is not a complete list of the metadata. You can see that we also have brightness, light balance and, importantly, GPS coordinates. Whilst there is also metadata associated with emails exported to Windows Explorer, these are not visible from Windows Explorer. However, Filecats is also to extract the metadata from MSG emails as well. Filecats Professional.

Introduction to Filecats, the Cataloguing programme, Saving you Time and Frustration. Filecats imports Windows Explorer information into Microsoft Excel, quickly and easily. Filecats Professional also imports metadata. Filecats is able to catalogue hidden and system files. Here we have a folder which, due to a simulated virus, you cannot see any of the files or folders -- and this happened to one of my clients recently -- all of his files disappeared. My first instinct was to do a catalogue to see what was left, and Filecats was able to catalogue all of the hidden files and folders, so I was able to ascertain that there were still there. You can see that the attributes of the folders show that they are both hidden and system. This knowledge allowed me to unhide the files and folders. It wasn't easy. If I show the hidden files, you still can't see them, because this nasty virus has also made them system, so you have to do a lot more to be able to see them. However, Filecats was able to show me that the files were still there. Similarly, I catalogue the C drive, you may think that the first folder that it catalogues is this one, but in fact the first folder is the Recycle Bin. You may be given a hard drive by somebody, and they may not have realised that files they deleted because they didn't want you to have them, may still be retained on the hard drive. So for me, whenever I receive a USB stick, a hard drive or a CD, the first thing I do is create a catalogue. That enables me to start to understand more easily what in on the hard drive, but also allows me to see any hidden files, that I might not otherwise be able to see. Filecats.co.u
