For anyone that works in an orginisation, they will know the clutter that department drives can accuelate and its difficult to keep all files and fodlers in check and know what goes where, esspcilly when the file comes under sevral catagories. Instead of setting up strict file placement rules which could easily dissintergrate with time due to the way humans work, I was thinking of a more, maybe, redicle approach on the way the file system works.
We know how Win files systesm work, file in folder and so forth, but I was thinking, maybe if you could do that, but Tag files with keywords of all the sections it comes under, you could then utilise searching to a greater extent search for these kind of meta tags. I know windows stores things like username of creator and so forth, but from what I have heard it is not powerful enough to utilise a 'searching on keyword' system.
I am not looking to wait for vista, or change to *nix/*linux system, I was more looking for something I didnt know, or an application, or maybe an idea which could be simply coded to use shared drives to a better extent, with less clutter and easier file finding for everyone in the department.
