FileList Data Conversion Utility

File Convert is the companion program for use with NTI's original FileList software. FileList has been upgraded by NTI and the new program has more features and capabilities. The upgrade is called FileList Pro and information about it can be found at filelist.html. If you are a licensed user of the original FileList program, you are encouraged to upgrade to the new version.

The original FileList was used to inventory the files and deleted files on a computer storage device. The output of the program was compressed so that it would easily fit on one or two floppy diskettes. FileConvert is a program that is used to convert the compressed output created by the original FileList program into a dBASE III file. It only works with the original FileList program and FileConvert is not compatible with the new FileList Pro software. This is because the new program provides more data and information and the file structure is substantially different. However, the original FileConvert program is still made available for licensed users of the original FileList program.
