Is there any software that keeps track of the content of USB Devices I connect to my System? I have several (~15) USB-Sticks and I can't remember were I put certain files/pictures etc. Using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit.
git-annex is an excellent solution for command line users. It keeps track of where your files are across local filesystems, external drives, different computers and cloud storage providers. git-annex assistant is a friendly front-end to it, but is still in development.
If you like commandline tool try "mlocate".
It support file name search with "regular expression"
Using a switch you can specify custom database to search. This database can be created using
To cerate DB:
To search in the DB
search for all files with extension .cfg using regular expression, ignore case
(see man page for more info such as switch)
