Snap2HTML v2.0 Updated

billon on 3 Jul 2017
  • 398KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Apr 2017
  • Suggested by mmx64

Snap2HTML takes a "snapshot" of folder structures on your harddrive and saves to an HTML file. The output is a modern, application-like view that feels like a real application, similar to Explorer. The program uses a treeview with folders that you can click to view the contained files. Includes a built-in file search with wildcards and breadcrumb-style path all within a single, easily distributed file.

Directory data can also be saved as text, CSV (spreadsheet), or JSON.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: .NET Framework 2.0
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPLv3
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Snap2HTML.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: LS - File List Generator, Directory Lister, MiTeC DirList
What's new?
  • Added export functionality to get data "out" of the HTML.
  • Export data as plain text, CSV or JSON.
  • Added support for searching with wildcards.
  • Search can be limited to current folder and/or subfolders.
  • Breadcrumb path is now clickable.
  • Current path is tracked in URL. Copy URL to link directly to that folder.
  • Opens previous folder when going back after opening a linked file.
  • Data format was tweaked to give slightly smaller output.
  • Fixed some bugs concerning filenames with odd characters.
  • Many other tweaks and fixes to improve the HTML template.

@shnbwmn: just curious if you ever tried DirHTML?

shnbwmn on 2016-04-07 14:01

No I hadn't; thank Midas. Tried it out and while it has lots of options, I still prefer Snap2HTML because of the nesting in the tree view, better visual clarity and speed of viewing. We're talking about 400k files/folders that are displayed in a single HTML, which Snap creates and displays quickly. The .htmls that DirHTML creates for much smaller directories are far larger than that of Snap's for my entire external drive.

For comparison, I created a test snapshot of my \Portable directory, where all my portable apps live, and DirHTML's output was 47Mb, nearly crashing Firefox and completely unviewable, whereas Snap's output for my entire external is around 32Mb, opens in seconds and easily navigated as if in a normal Explorer window.

I'll definitely be keeping your suggestion though, because it's useful for other types of directory snapshotting :)

Excellent program. A nice interface, an easy to navigate format, and a search program all inside a single HTML. Nice.

WOW I was not aware of it.....thanks

JohnTHaller on 2013-11-24 21:00

@Wolfghost - All our apps have an INI that lets you disable the splash. You can disable them all in the Platform in the Options window as well. Unless the splash is built into the app itself, of course, like GIMP et al, in which case you need to follow the directions for disabling the splash in the base app.

Ok thanks guys

Just install it normally, but outside Program Files. The result is the same. Note that there is no "ScanFSshellExt.dll" file anymore.
