      Hi guys. I just installed Tabbles free and am testing it.

      I plan buy the business licence and use it in 2 PCs and 1 laptop. I haven’t tested it on them yet.

      Once I have tagged files on PC 1, will I be able to find these files while I’m on laptop, even if laptop can’t access them?

      And what if I have a SMB shared folder on PC 2 that’s accessible on PC 1 and laptop?

      This folder has the same path on PC 1 and laptop (a mapped network drive or its original \\ path), but a different path on PC 2 (its local drive path). Will Tabbles be able to find its files on these 3 PCs? And if I use Locate in Windows Explorer, will Tabbles send me to proper path?

      Hi Hikari,

      I believe this won’t work… have you tested it by now?

      Is this because [machineName] is unique (and thus different) when the query is run on each unique machine?
      Maybe this is part of the Network edition, but it might be useful if [organization][name] could over-ride machinename with a ‘switch’ (SEE ALL Machines’ TABBLES) in the Interface, and thus ‘UNION’ [machinename]s in the pertinent queries.

        You can only tag stuff mapped on letter in Tabbles. Once that is in place, if you can access that Drive/letter from your pc, than Tabbles can too.
