Add an automatic refresh cycle so that when new external drives are connected, the program automatically reads them andd includes them in the Drive Catalogue.

Please ask permission before adding this program to my start up folder. I prefer to have the choice of running these programs rather than have them permanently running in the back ground - thank you

Include 'voice activated' instant access to my folders. With today's technology it should be relatively simple to utilize 'voice recognition' software with this program. I'd certainly pay a lot more for it. :)

Why is it necessary to sell this program in two flavours? Combine the Standard and Pro editions into a single package.

integrate Folder Scout into Windows File Open/File Save dialogs. I don't see much added value of just opening a folder in Windows Explorer. While daily we open/save several files.

When right clicking on any folder include a link to folder scout's favorites in the drop down menu

This will add another way to add folders to the Folder scouts favorites menu.

While the program is updating the catalogue (It takes a long time to scan over larger drives), I keep getting the message 'Out of Memory' when trying to run other programs. Please make the scan less memory intensive.

The GUI is old school please bring it up to date and add several skins so that users can select their preference and match up to their desktop themes

Make the Catalogue updater automatic when adding an external drive and speed up the scanning process for updating the catalogue.

I have over 8 TB of drive space, plus over six more Terabyte (that's a total of over 14 thousand Gigabytes). It took several minutes just to scan my small Solid State drive.

Update the images on your web site. They show folders from 2008. Change these for folders from this year. :)

Excellent help document, but it needs some good video tuorials to cover all aspects of the software. These could be linked to via the various sections of the help document.

Add Support for offline drives (like USB Hard Drives)

Useful being able to search for a folder - and find out which drive it is on, so it can be connected and the files retrieved.

This program is redundant in windows7; the built in search does this.

Although there is access to Folder Scout via the mouse's right click, it's only to place favorites; include another link to open up the GUI

Integrate Folder Scout with windows own search function rather than have a seperate entity.

add file searching along with folder searching

In my opinion, it'll be a lot better if you could integrate file searching as well. We usually need the files inside the folder rather than the whole folder (and to be honest, I often forget the name of the folder.) In short, and in my humble...

Removable drives: Maybe add an optional way to store catalogs on the removable drive itself (and a way to import catalogs when connecting the drives automatically)
