I am looking for a simple program to archive and search for filenames
in my backup CDs.

I have tried http://medialibrary.sourceforge.net/ and here are the
pros:
- it is open source
- being java based it works on my win pc but I can hope it will work
also on other system
- it stores data on an open xml format (I might need to change system
in future and convert my data)

But here are the cons I cannot work with:
- poor search interface
- no way to sort results by date (i.e. in which CD is the latest
version of this document?)

Does anybody know of another software that solves expecially the latest
issue?

Thank you in advance,
Filiberto
