How might you use a program that creates a list of files on a drive? You may want a record of the state of a drive at a certain time in its history. You may wish to help a remote user, not by accessing their computer, but by asking the user to take a snapshot with this program. They might send only a snapshot of the Windows directory, for example. If you have a web site, you may wish to let visitors see your file structure - while, also being able to open up the tree menu view of folders to see filenames contained. (It is editable and will not contain filenames you wish to hide.) You may wish to make a listing of files from another computer available on the one you carry around. (That way, you know which computer to search on.)
The default snapshot settings (above) were changed to include only the Music folder, and make the file links enabled.
The default file location appears to be the root of C: That needed to be changed. In this case, I chose the Desktop.
The generated HTML code from this program has the look and feel of a real, live, window. But, files cannot be accessed unless you are on the same computer that created the snapshot, AND you asked Snap2HTML to make live links. If the html file is viewed elswhere, the files are not accessible. However, should you wish to make some of the filenames into hypertext links, say, for a CD or a DVD, that can be done with post editing. Instructions for doing so are in the README.txt file. I notice that the snapshot also provides a file/folder count and total used space in MBs. [The download site offers a sample file, online, that makes all of these functions clear.]
RLVision, the developer, offers quite a few other useful titles.
