Do you have this problem with download amnesia ?
You are busily surfing download sites, you see an interesting download at www.lifehacker.com
or wherever, and you download them over a period of weeks/months.
And you told yourself that one of these days you are going to install and try them.
now the "That" day of reckoning has arrived. You see all the .exe and zip files with cryptic names, you cannot for the life of you remember why you downloaded them in the first place or even where you got them from.
There's a solution www.filenotes.com
But it does have some problems with a 3rd party file detection service it uses that conflicts with some software I use.
But it can still be used effectively without this file detection service although with some incovenience.
Some have claimed that the 3rd party file detection service multiappnt.exe contributes to system instability leading to BSOD Bad_Pool_Header. You can read about this in their forum. I have experiend the BSOD problems although I cannot say for certain it's due to this.
As a result, I now use the program without the file detection service.
I'm also wondering if anyone knows of another way to annotate files with filenotes easliy besides those below:
Xplorer2 Professional www.zabkat.com
xplorer2 allows you to annotate files although the annotation:
"add comments to any file, providing it's on an NTFS partition. These comments are different from file-internal comment/preview features of some files like Word or Excel. They are strored in an alternate data stream (ADS), and can be added/edited from x2 with Alt+Z.
Yes they are limited; but 257 characters seems like a lot to me. "
Filenotes Professional Edition (I have not tried this)http://home.flash.ne.../FileNotes/index.htm
