I have just purchased EagleFiler in the hope that it will improve my “paperless” office which to date has relied on Finder Folder structures and Spotlight. At present I have two types of data : Private stored on an encrypted volume and everything else. I have been experimenting with EagleFiler and have decided on an initial way of using the application. However, I would appreciate any comments from knowledgable users.
To be able to quickly locate scanned and OCR’d PDF documents stored on my hard drive that relate to a specific topic.
Remove duplicate files.
Create two libraries; one on the secure volume the second on the normal hard drive. I seek confirmation that there is no particular advantage in having EagleFiler create a secure library on a sparse volume of its own. I did wonder if the application would store the name and location of the secure volume in its list of libraries but this does not seem to be the case so I might as well as just use my existing secure volume.
I plan to move all my files inside EagleFilers folder structure and then import them into the library. I believe that this method will allow duplicates of files to be imported. Once the import is completed I will be able to run an Applescript to locate and remove the duplicates. Is there a better way of getting rid of duplicates?
thanks in advance and best wishes
