Disabling the hidden “Thumbs.db” files

Monday, April 25th, 2011

 Many times when working on your local computer’s drives, or through mapped network drives, you will encounter this hidden system file (if hidden and system files are turned on).   A frequent error involves creating a folder on a mapped network drive, copying files to that folder such as PDFs, and trying to rename that folder.  This happens under a few different setups, but primarily when the user’s workstation is either Vista or Windows 7.  You will eventually be able to rename the folder, or delete it, but only after the system stops using the file.

Linking folders in Outlook with FileSite using Email Management

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

 You have the ability to link folders within Outlook to FileSite filing folders if you have the Email Management Module purchased and installed.   This means that if you have a folder in your mailbox, and you move a message from your inbox to that folder, it can be setup to auto profile everything moved there to a specific filing folder in a WorkSpace.  This means you have the ability to link a single folder within your mailbox to a single filing folder in a WorkSpace.  Since we are talking about emails, it should be said that when we link a folder, it should ALWAYS be linked to the Email folder for the respective matter.  Since the folder can only be linked to one folder in FileSite, the only emails in your Outlook folder should pertain to that matter.  This can be setup on new folders, or existing folders.
