This feature enables users to create individual catalogs for various kinds of files (e.g. a catalog of music files, a document library, a database of all files related to some project etc.) - even if all files are stored in various directories on one drive. The program features powerful search capabilities: it can perform the search using Boolean expressions, find files by name, description, notes or keywords, using the size and date limits - all this without physically accessing the disks. When a file is located, you can view its properties, open it, or launch Windows Explorer to its parent folder.
ACAT`s allow the all file management functions, enabling users to perform operations (move, copy, delete) on groups of certain files (for example, a user can find all documents, modified after a certain date - no matter where they are stored - and copy them to one folder for backup purposes).
The program`s synchronization features allow using it for monitoring changes on a hard drive: when a user performs synchronization of data on a drive (or in an individual folder), a dialog is displayed that shows all new, modified and deleted files.The unique Find Duplicates feature lets users locate duplicate documents on the hard drive: in addition to file name, size and modification date/time comparison ACAT compares the files by their CRC32 code, making it absolutely impossible to miss identical or confuse different files.
