I'm usually good at finding applications that work to my satisfaction
when needed, however, I thought of a program that would be very useful,
and I can't seem to find anything like it.

What I need:
A program that can catalog all files in a user defined directory.  This
way I can click on, AUDIO, for example, and it will generate a list of
all sound files.  VIDEO will generate a list for movie file types.  TEXT
for .doc, .odt, .rtf, .pdf, .txt etc.

Purpose:
I am doing freelance computer repair, upgrades, etc.  Often I need to
salvage an old hard drive, and transfer personal documents to a new hard
drive, and leave behind system files and application files.

I vision this program to be something kind of like the way Picasa
catalogs photos, but my needs go beyond photos.

I have Linux, Windows, and Mac, so if you know of a program for any, or
all of these OS's, please let me know.

Thanks,
Jeff
