The difference between previous catalog software I had (Cathy, Visual CD and WinCatalog all these are free, please see my review), is minor functionalities and features, which similar to Visual CD, but not more than functional as WinCatalog. As Cathy is simple and minimum interface and functionality. Visual CD, Gentibus CD and WinCatalog does have similarity but still WinCatalog has advantage with wide functions and features (Differs usage between WinCatalog Light and 2012). Cathy still has the overall speed on cataloging and search results over indexed folders and files. While the others still need to progress on cataloging speed, but overall they are all worth it to use, especially if you need particular functions that the others can’t do.
