I have 20 or so hard drives that have accumulated over the years. We're in the process of moving to a new facility and my boss wants me to index all the drives and create basically a printed inventory of whats installed on them as well as all the Word, Excel, PDF, PPT and image files on each. I have a drive adapter that I can use to hook them up to my system. We also have common network drive where everyone throws everything that I need to index so it can be cleaned up. Ideally, I'd like something that could sort things by file type, create date, mod date, author, etc.
I started to write a PHP app that would dump this into Excel, but I'm wondering if there is anything already out there, preferably open source, that will do the job.
