I use EF routinely on a number of projects. The primary problem that I run into is that sometimes files are in the Finder folder, but not in EF (I got lazy or wasn’t as careful as I should have been). The result is puzzling, although I can usually find the files with Spotlight, move them to Finder, and then back into EagleFiler. Such problems are not bugs in EF, but manifestations of human lapses. Still, couldn’t things be easier?
Question: Couldn’t there be a pretty harmless EF script that would do automatic reconciliation, i.e., looking in each Finder folder continaing an EF library, noticing if there are any files in the folder that aren’t in the library, and–if there are–inserting them in the library?
Working the other direction, EF’s error-message window indicates when there are items in the library that can no longer be found where they are supposed to be. It would seem to me that there could be an interface allowing more efficient reconciliation than addressing the items one-by-one.
