    Hello,
    I am currently testing tabbles to check if my dream comes out…I have always dreamed of a way to be able to categorise my files as they belong to different folders but with only with one real file…basicly what Tabbles is doing.

    Nevertheless I have a question I understand that if the drive name chages (what can be the case with external drives) tables looses the link between the actual file and the entry in his database… Is there a way to tell him that all the files the previously thought was on the E-drive is not located on the D-drive ?

    Thanks in advance.

    hello Jfw, and welcome to the forum 🙂

    Right now, if the letter of the drive changes, Tabbles gets "confused". This is a known issue and we already know how to get over this: we need to change the way we handle the drives and use a more powerful API that allows us to read the unique serial number of each drive – as soon as this is done, a changed drive letter will not "confuse" Tabbles anymore 🙂

    – Btw, we need to update the upcoming feature list thread… :mrgreen:

    Regards,

    Andrea

    I see we are pretty aligned on what to do 🙂
