|The Folder Organisation Dialog presents a folder tree similar to but a little
different to a normal file hierarchy tree. However only paths leading to folders
containing images from the current database will displayed, making it much
easier to view. If you select a folder that contains images in the current
ImageDB database those images will be listed in the list box to the right.
Folders and their contents can be easily copied, moved or renamed
here using the appropriate buttons. It is necessary to do this sort
of maintenance here rather than using the normal Windows Explorer
approach in order to keep the ImageDB database in synch with the
actual names and locations of the images.
Folders can be unmounted. When it is unmounted, the folder structure below
the unmount point is recorded but everything above is ignored. This means that a
folder can be unmounted and then the original data copied to a new location
using other applications such as Windows Explorer or a CD burner before being remounted.
This allows ImageDB images to be easily moved from you hard disk to
CDs without ImageDB losing track of them.
