PCNet File Catch
It used to be that I couldn't find anything because it was always on
that 160Kb diskette that was always like the lost sock, I could find
anything but the one that had the data I needed. There were elaborate
catalog programs that would keep track of disks, print nifty looking
inserts and do all kinds of things....except find the blasted diskette.
What a great change hard drives delivered. The prospect of 10Mb of
storage on a drive eliminated the floppy shuffle and things were good.
Of course there wasn't a lot to put on a hard drive, some documents,
some spreadsheets and maybe a checkbook ledger. Ah, everything at my
Yikes, how those days have changed. I have some files that exceed
10Mb multiple times. Files and stuff all over the place or, even if
they're in a single folder, there are tons of them and I'm almost back
to where I started....at least I can find the drive, even if I can't
find the file.
I'd solved the problem with managing email with
but I was still floundering with multimedia files. Music, images and
video are all over the place and yep, I end up burning a bunch of time
just trying to find that certain file that's elusive at the exact moment
that I need it.
Then I found Media Manager and solved the next leg of my data catalog
nightmare. Media Manager put me back in control of all my multimedia
Media Manager allows me to thumbnail all my images which isn't all
that remarkable but it goes a step further with allowing me to catalog
all multimedia files including audio and video using a variety of
configurable layouts. Full playback is done right inside of Media
Files can be rated with a value. I can then go back in and searched
using that value as a search key. In addition I can tag files, either
when I import them or later on. For instance I can automatically add a
"rock and roll" key when I import selected files and then go back in and
refine them further and then search using those keys.
Speaking of import it's easy yet powerful. I can import using
predefined conditions and thus eliminate importing certain files. Much
more selective than importing an entire directory and then having to go
back and eliminate that I didn't really want included.
Search is powerful allowing a search using multiple criteria
including keys, filenames, content, date or size either individually or
There are more features; reports that can be exported to html, full
file manager functions such as copy, move and delete, CDDB support via
FreeDB.org and movie and game data import from IMDB, searching inside of
ZIP, RAR and CAB files and a ton more.
The definitive solution for keeping your files under control, don't
spend more time finding it than it's worth, using Media Manager and keep
everything at your fingers.
