The Holy Grail of Media Asset Management (according to ZDNet)

NeoFinder (was CDFinder) quickly catalogs and manages your entire media and disk library, and backup archive.

Catalog your digital data: SSD, hard disks (internal, external, USB, FireWire, Thunderbolt, HFS+, APFS, NTFS, ExFAT, FAT32), server volumes (AFP, SMB, NAS, FTP, Dropbox, Backblaze B2), Blu-rays, LTO volumes, USB sticks, DVD-ROMs, Audio-CDs, and get a full inventory of all files, folders, and important metadata, including thumbnails for photos, songs, video files and other documents.

Find your files NOW! Whatever you search, NeoFinder knows where it is! If you are a desktop user, or work in a small or large network, stay in control of your data at any time.

Organize and put a structure into your library of photos, videos, songs, and documents of all kinds, by adding ratings, descriptions, keywords, and more with the integrated XMP editor.

How to make the transition from iView to NeoFinder?

"Moving from Media Pro to NeoFinder was a doddle. The developers even offer a 'sidegrade' discount for people making this transition."

"I kept trying to trip it up – going for searches that I knew other applications had struggled with and it passed every test I threw at it."

Neil Turner, Photographer

"I have only used NeoFinder for a few hours but I had to write and tell you how amazing it is and it's EXACTLY what I was looking for, and more. The additional features and ability to see metadata about the audio files is sure to be a big help as I use it more. The main reason I need the app is so I know what hard drive to find and mount to load an old project because I don't want to keep all 10 (and counting) hard drives mounted 24/7 and search around when needed.
Also, the iOS version is the icing on the cake because if I'm traveling and somebody asks about an old file, I can quickly search the iOS app and verify that I have the file and can send it later."

"Once again THANK YOU for all of your help and for putting the work into creating such a brilliant tool. I have started cataloguing seriously now and every time I look for a feature, I find it. The fact that I can instantly and easily see how much space is available on offline drives is the most recent example. It is really great and I wish I had discovered it years ago."
"Anyhow, I shall be sure to tell lots of people about it who I know will find it useful - and the price is very fair, especially for companies like us, who would not be able to afford systems used by large corporations. I spend far too much time dealing with years of film data so this really is a lifesaver."
   Richard C., Bristol, U.K.
