FenrirFS - file organization / tagging

#1 Post by webfork »

A somewhat dated and probably discontinued tagging/labeling system from the folks behind Sleipnir browser. This program will organize your file collection, and still has a lot to offer despite it's age. A real step above some other tools I've tested just because it draws from the subfolders to generate initial tags, so if you've already done some categorization, it can get you on your way to sorting through your files.

In testing it worked fine in Win10x64.

Most recent version: https://download.fenrir.co.jp/FenrirFS2 ... -setup.exe
Thanks for that ... the version I tested about 1.5 yrs ago was 2.4.9 (the same version that Softpedia appears to be hosting) but what's up on their website is listed as 2.6.4. So evidently it's still in development. Sadly, there's no release notes (link is broken) and I couldn't see any obvious differences in testing. Maybe a bugfix?

I would think this program would be insanely useful if you weren't for whatever reason able to actually modify or move file names, but still wanted to keep track of everything. This would let you manage, organize, and catalog even with just read-only access.

I am not sure I understand your meaning, webfork. The goal if I understand it is to catalogue a database of files such that the catalogue in FenrirFS is read-only; that is, you cannot thereafter move the source file or rename it. Here is what I can do with it that may or may not answer your question. I use the portable version, of course.

I create a Manual mode profile. I change the "Drop Operations" tab under environment settings to Custom so that I have some way of choosing whether a file in the database is physically there or is an alias. Alternately, Right-click-drag files into the middle-column file list to choose physical copy, physical move, or create an alias without moving the file. The difference is

Physical Move/Copy
  • The file is physically in the subdirectory (under the FenrirFS executable)
\FenrirFS Storage\profilename\files
  • Renaming or moving the file in the database does rename or move the actual file. Moving it outside of that directory deletes the listing in the database.
Alias
  • An text alias file is created in the subdirectory
\FenrirFS Storage\profilename\files
  • (you can have both aliases and real files
  • The alias file has the real name and location of the file, as well as the display name that you see in the database
  • If you rename or delete the alias, only the alias is renamed or deleted. The real file is NOT renamed nor deleted
Issue: the location in the alias file is hard coded, so if you do wish to move the repository of files to another drive, etc., you would either do a search/replace on those alias files, or set up a windows SUBST or junction point so that you keep the same path. You can also use relative paths in the alias files to make them relative to the executable, I've found.

I am curious whether this would help with what your goals are., or if I misinterpreted the issue.

FenrirFS is now at version 2.65

Midas' link to the portable version will download the latest release (reproduced here)
https://www.fenrir-inc.com/services/dow ... nrirFS.zip

Features (from Google Translate of https://www.fenrir-inc.com/jp/fenrirfs/note.html
2021.07.13
Implemented Google Drive Profile function.
Added 3 line height types for file list when widescreen display.
Fixed other minor bugs.

Note: version 2.6.5 adds 258 mB to its size in a subdirectory called cef, expanding the unpacked size from 32 to 297 mBs. I won't have time to look at this version and the Google Drive implementation, but I'm not sure I will update just yet.
