Question Integrated File Explorer


First of all: Thanks for developing this fantastic product!

I have a question:

Could you make it possible to browse external files from within Ultra Recall??? My point is that I don't want to leave UR, and have to open explorer to drag&drop files into UR!

I want to be able to browse the files on my c: (and d: etc) DIRECTLY from within UR, and then decide if I want to import the file into UR-Database, or just link to it.

Another solution could be to make it possible to sync folder content. That way I could add files to a linked folder (eg "My Documents"), press "Sync" and the files (or the a link to the files" became available in UR.

Today, if you link to a folder, and later add files to that folder - they wont appear in UR unless you drag&drop or import them. This could be solved with the sync.

Best regards,

Thanks for the compliment.

There are two ways to do this; here's how:

1) In UR's browser address bar (Alt+D), enter the drive+path you want to browse (i.e., c:\) and click the Go button or press Enter. The Detail pane will show a live Explorer view of the folder, allowing you to navigate and drag/drop or copy/paste files/folders to add them as UR items.

2) Make sure 'Tools | Options | Browser | File extensions to display in internal browser view' includes ;*folder. Then add the drive+path you want to browse as a UR item using File | Import | A folder, checking 'Don't import files...'. When you navigate to that item in UR, the detail view will show the live Explorer view of the file system, and files/folders can be dragged/dropped or copied/pasted into UR from it.

We do also have plans to provide enhanced sync capabilities in a future release.
