[1]Software Description

The following is a description of Folder Scout Standard as per BitsDuJour:

When you first bought your computer, navigating to the folder that you wanted was easy. But as your work volume grows, so too do the number of folders and subfolders! Today, it’s impossible for you to get to any folder without drilling through huge lists, which severely impacts your productivity. But things get better right now, thanks to Folder Scout Standard, today’s discount software promotion.

Folder Scout Standard gives you instant access to any drive, folder, or file on your computer, just by typing the first few letters of the name. With Folder Scout Standard, you no longer have to navigate huge hierarchies of folders, nor do you really have to worry about nesting a folder into the right spot. An outstanding Predictive Search Engine empowers Folder Scout Standard to easily index the names of thousands of folders, placing you exactly where you want to be with just a few typed letters.

Best of all, Folder Scout Standard does all of this without bogging down your system. There’s no background indexing to take up CPU cycles. All that’s needed is just a few seconds to catalog the names of the folders on your drive, and you’re good to go! Even if you do some housekeeping and change folder names, Folder Scout Standard will automatically track these changes and account for them in your next search!

dotTech Advice

Many people are familiar with the need to better organize their folders. While Folder Scout Standard offers one way but of the deep, however, it’s not necessarily the best or the fastest. After its lengthy initial scan, I was able to use it to quickly access my folders.

How does the quick folder access work? You are presented with four tabs: a folder tree, favorite folders, recent folders, recent documents, and a search box. Does this remind you of anything [2]?

All in all I’d say Folder Scout Standard is a tool that’s not really as useful as it first appears to be. However, if you still have Windows XP or for some reason hate Windows’ built-in search and the awesome search tool Everything [3], Folder Scout could still potentially be useful.
