Automatic groupings

Your operating system most likely has a mechanism to manually tag files so that you can search for them later. Tags are powerful because a file can have multiple tags, such as "recipe" and "Italy". Organizing by folder structure is not as flexible because a file can only go into one folder - to use the above example, a file cannot be both in a recipe folder and an Italy folder. Most people start to organize their content with good intentions, either using tags or folder structures, but before long give up as it is a time consuming process.

EdgeRover™ makes it easy to organize your content using manual tags and collections. In addition it automatically organizes your contents. Here are some examples:

  • Search or browse by place (requires photos taken on smartphones or cameras with location services enabled).
  • Search or browse by items automatically detected in photos, such as car, building, bridge, people, dog and many more.
  • Search and browse by file type, such as all spreadsheets.
  • Browse photos from a celebration, such as a birthday party.
  • Browse by file size. This is great for finding large files that you may no longer need and that are taking up valuable storage space.
  • Browse duplicates - this is another great way to identify unnecessary copies of files so you can free up storage space, not to mention having the reassurance that you have backups of files.
  • Browse recently opened files. This makes it easy to resume working on them.
  • Browse files from this week and month in past years. If you have regular annual activities, like filing tax returns, this is a great way to find your past files. Or on a happier note, photos from past birthdays.
