What kind of "list of contents" are we talking about, here? When you say "when shutting down the PC" do you mean you are shutting it down yourself or is the machine being shut-down by external parties (like automated remote shutdown in large organizations)? Without further information, and assuming you are asking for a file-listing the folowing thoughts com to mind:
- it is easy to run a batch triggered by the windows LogOff- or ShutDown event, but any process started must end quickly or run the risk of being prematurely killed by the OS.
- In most cases I've come accross it is possible to gather the data in a normal process and let it - your own program, when it's all finished - shut down the machine for you. That way there's no time pressure.
- If it's file listings you want it can be done with both everything's db and jpstree.idx but,.. why?
