Data Management software

Q: Data Management software

I have so many files stored here and there on my computer and my office server..It is very difficult for me to find out final usable files for reference later.. are any of the group members aware of any software which can manage all these things smoothly.

Preferred Solution: Data Management software

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Data Management software

I have a Document Management Access Database that keeps a record of all your files and opens them at the press of a button.
If you have Access you are welcome to a copy.
There may be some file types it does not open, but it handles most of them.

Hi folks, I just discovered this great forum, and hope to meet some of you.

I also hope to get answers to some questions bugging me.

I started out with DOS when it first emerged, which I thought I understood, and have since suffered, dragging my feet and screaming through most of the reiterations of Windows, finally being forced from XP to 7.

I don't understand the concept of Libraries. (I assume libraries are a User Account thing).

I want to organize my data MY way as I always have, NOT the MS way. So I have a folder tree on C:\ with the root as \DATA\ and its branches organized into data types or projects, topics, subtopics, etc. Using this highly organized system I can just drag DATA to another disk for backup (except I don't capture POPmail, address lists and bookmarks as they are in OS user directories [annoying] - I am the only user). (I have XP computers with a 2nd disk dedicated to DATA and may go that route with 7 eventually).

I realize this system is not especially efficient for backups, but I have plenty of space, and I can directly access backed up files, which is often useful to me, plus I need no special software. I had a XP home network with a raid 1 array where files from all computers were synched and also copied to a third disk at intervals; I hope to rebuild the network in Win7 if I can find Win7 drivers for my BlackArmor raid array.

Currently, if I save a file and forget to specify a destination, and the program does not let m... Read more

A:Libraries & Data Management

The primary Windows tool to examine partitions is Disk Management. Type that name into the search box and you should be able to examine your partitions.

The tutorial you refer to can get rid of libraries from the Explorer tree, but I'm not sure if it will remove it from your "save as" dialogs. There might be something else to do that?

Other tutorials can get rid of "homegroup" and "network" from the explorer tree.

I also use my own folder structure on a D drive and do not use libraries either. I find them to be redundant and a clutter. I think they are mostly useful to people who are either highly disorganized or who have many drives with multiple copies of the same file. Some people swear by them, but they don't add anything useful to many user scenarios.

Hi how you handle that with the Data management.

I mean if i don't use partition all data (Programs, user data, Images, video, Music, ...) on one partition.
I don't realy like that especial for backing up Data and System at deferent times
and also for accessing data from a second operating system on same PC.

So I use a second partition for User-Data (Private data, schools data, ...)
and a third partition mainly for Media Data Pictures, Music and Videos
Most of Music and Video is on an External HD.

But in the folder "C:\users\NAME" there are many folders like ".APP-NAME"
and also Desktop, Download, My Pictures, ....
I don't really miss them on my "Data" partition as my Musik is not in "My Music"
my videos is not in "My Videos".
But much applications "use" this Folders for default saving point or loading point, ...

How can I organize this in a better way?

A:Windows 7 Data management

You can use windows 7 Libraries to add folders into the "my Music" folder and have one set as the default location.

Hi everyone, my software(data acquisition software) works well and saves data in the folder with full control permissions, but when I try to save my data in the restricted folder(only delete permission is denied) it displays an error access denied.
Is there any workaround to disable the delete option and keeping the normal functioning of software intact, as my intention is to allow the users to generate the data and restricting them from deleting the generated data

Hi all,
First post here and i'm struggling!

Just recently, a few months ago, i made the beautiful switch from an old macbook pro to a gorgeous custom built desktop computer running windows 7 home premium 64bit. I am pretty comfortable with computers, and actually building the hardware was pretty easy for me. However, I realized i'm pretty clueless when it comes to maintaining a windows computer! I have had a few problems with Adware and viruses, but was able to get rid of them.

Recently things have gotten a little more serious. My computer started getting locked in a loop when playing music or video files or full screen games, then it would freeze randomly at any time. The loops was the strangest thing, it would loop anywhere from half a second to 4 seconds of the media, and the operating system would eventually freeze altogether, with the loops audio still playing. I did a system restore and it worked again for a few days, then it started happening again.

I thought it might be the driver for my video card, an MSI wtih NVidia GeForce 660. I updated it and again it seemed to be fine until i tried to run Smite (video game) in full screen. Then the whole system started freezing up again.

I'm preparing to just reinstall Windows 7 and start from the beginning again. My first question is about the data on my harddrive. I have a SSD harddrive which has windows 7 and my applications on it, and then a 2 TB WD harddrive that has all my files on it. I'm wondering... Read more

A:windows 7 reinstallation/data management help

When you install Windows to a drive, you should always disconnect all other drives before beginning.

If you do that, there is no way that anything on drive 2, 3, etc can be disturbed.

Having said that, you are foolish if you don't have at least 2 copies of whatever "my files" is anyway.

The main data file in this program is called Overview.wd2 and is listed at the top of the Selector column. Occasionally I save a copy of this file in case I need it later. Now I would like to copy this saved file to my current Overview.wd2 file without overwriting or deleting any of the current contents. It seems like my only choice is to copy the saved data file to the InfoSelect folder where it will become a second data file listed in the Selector.

I have looked at the Help file of the latest version of InfoSelect and still cannot find any information about how to accomplish this task.

Itís been many years since Iíve encountered virus/spyware problems but my computer finally caught something and Iím planning on reformatting (thatís what I get for not having any AV). Luckily, I still have access to all my data so can backup everything thatís important. However, itís gotten me thinking about the value of the data on my computer. Iíve got the last ten years of my life recorded and Iíd like to ensure that I donít loose that due to virus or hard drive failure.

Once I am done reformatting, Iím planning on keeping my data on a separate HD from my OS/software. The main reason for this is so that I can make an image of the OS/software HD but I was wondering if separating the data from the software will provide any significant protection to the data from viral corruption?

Thanks in advance!

i work for an internet business which sells on eBay. at the moment we take a lot of phone orders. obviously with eBay it keeps a record of the order on there, but with phone orders it involves so much paperwork being produced and filing, so when customers ring up to query something from a while back im having to go through loads of paperwork to find their order.

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable piece of software that i can use where i would just enter details of their order, for example name, delivery address, items ordered and price etc etc. It would ideally be so if someone rings up and asks about a previous order i can open this program, click a few buttons and their order is in front of me.

im not fussed about keeping inventorys of stock levels and all that, don't particularly want anything over complicated, im good with computers and quite knowledgable but would prefer something simple.
another way i was thinking was to do my own "intranet" and have a form on there which i fill in and then it saves it on the computer so me and my two colleagues (which will become more as we expand) can view it.

i also looked into using microsoft access but not a fan of it.

any ideas would be much appreciated!!!
many thanks

Hi Arron, welcome to the board!

I would recommend Microsoft Access, especially if you have it. Of course this could be done in Excel (which I am a fan of ) but as you grow and your information grows with your company, you'll be happy you started this in a relational database.

There are many Access guru's here and I'm not one of them. LOL! But you may want to think about changing your thread title (Thread Tools | Edit Thread) to include Access somewhere in there. Your current title is somewhat misleading. Also, you may want to check Office Online for templates, there are many you may find useful.

Hey everybody

Here at the office, we have been using Microsoft Access 2003 to manage our agents. It's worked pretty well, but we need something that will do more. Now, I'm not sure of the extent that Access can go into, so it may actually be able to do everything we need it to do.

What we need is contact management software that will allow us to set everyone up into groups. But we need to be able to set up users for the database. These users would have limited access, depending on who they are in the company. Also, we need something where we can attach resumes, files, etc. to it. We are currently using Access, and about 3 other programs to do various things.

I've taken a look at Act! 6, and it is almost perfect for what we want. The people can be put into various groups, and I can attach files right to those people for easy access. Almost perfect.

The problem is, Act doesn't allow me to set access to the groups. For example, when I was using Act, I would set up a hierarchy, to where the top group is the top guy, and each person under that person is a subgroup. That works perfect, except I need to be able to set it up where only certain people can see these groups. I can't do this with Act.

I've taken a look at some other programs as well, but Act is the closest thing I can find. Does anyone know of some really good Contact Management software that I can use? Or is Access capable of what I need it to do?

That sounds like a good idea but I don't know of anything that will do that. Modern PC's and moder OS' such as Win 7 do not have a problem with a large amount of fonts.

I'm looking for some software that we can use to manage our printing in our office. We have a couple printers that we print on each day and we'd like to track how much gets printed through there. I've found some stuff, but the main function I'm looking for I'm not sure they offer. We aren't trying to see who prints the most or waste paper or anything (we don't really see that as an issue) but instead we need to track our reimbursable.

All of our printing (for clients) gets charged back to the client. Basically I want something that when you click print on your computer, you have to select what project it's for. Maybe just enter the project number. Then the software tracks how many pages (of both 8 1/2 x 11 and 11 x 17 separately) so at the end of the month we have a total of how much each project requires we print.
