      I’ve been learning Tabbles and testing it out. Recently, I moved some files in explorer when Tabbles was apparently not active. Despite moving entire directories, when I looked back at the folders, no tags had been persevered, nor rules on the folders.  So my question is:

      1. How are the tags and rules stored exactly, if not in the folders?
      2. If Tabbles is not running and I move files, is all of that information irrevocably lost?
        • As in I’ll have to re-tag and resort everything again?

      Hi there,

      1. in a database, see here: https://tabbles.net/wiki/index.php?title=Tabbles_Manual_(EN)#Using_Tabbles_Local_.28runs_on_Microsoft_SQL_Server_LocalDb.29
      2. No: the shell extension that tracks file movement, does so also when Tabbles is not running (as long as it’s properly installed) and logs movements in a file inside  %appdata%\Tabbles\    . It’s recommended anyway that you keep Tabbles always on and minimised in the icon tray.
