Questions And Answers

How do I run the application on Windows 7?

Disk Index Maker is able to run on Windows 7 but it needs the latest Visual Basic 5 runtime files because they are not pre-installed on Microsoft's operating system in the required version. You can find them in the downloads section.

How are the tables of contents saved? Can I access this data somehow?

Disk Index Maker saves the filenames, sizes and so on in a real database, which is created by using the Jet Database Drivers. Therefore, the index file is accessible from Microsoft Access for instance.

I've lost my password and now I can't access my stuff anymore. Is there a way to recover it?

Sadly, no. Disk Index Maker doesn't save the password itself, so it can't recover it or the lost data. This would also make the whole password protection superfluous, so this feature won't be added to the application.

Can I save more than one volumes in one single file?

Yes, this is the normal modus operandi. Disk Index Maker supports maintaining dozens of disks in merely one single file. If you already saved all your disks in separate files you can merge them into one index using the Import functionality.
