I noticed that a document management system called My Digital Documents is on sale at Bits today. Has anyone used this before? If so, is it worth the price? Also, has anyone had any experience with other document management systems (for single computers)? I have hundreds of documents, image files, audio files, etc., etc., to keep track of, but so far, it has seemed more efficient to just use Windows Explorer.

Hi Gary, take a look at the recent thread on Paperport etc. http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/4698/0/paperless-paperport-14

Thanks. Interesting thread. I don’t have any need to scan anything myself, so I guess using a document management system would just add a redundant layer of complexity. I try to keep my setup as minimalistic as possible and Windows Explorer, after all, IS a document management system in its own right.

I agree. What I would find useful in this regard is a lightweight Explorer replacement providing fast Boolean search of document contents and preview of just about any kind of document.

Give consideration to the Advanced Query Syntax and the viewer in Explorer…or Powershell with regex for the seriously geeky…..

Windows 8 exposes more of it in the search ribbon-
