4. Organize your catalogs

For every entire disk or data folder that you Catalog, NeoFinder will create a data file of the same name inside the NeoFinder Database Folder. Every catalog file that is stored in the NeoFinder database folder will be displayed in the main window of NeoFinder, in the LIBRARY section.

If you have more than a few dozen volumes cataloged, this list will grow quite long.

Fortunately enough, NeoFinder offers some good ways to organize your catalogs.

One way is the ability that you can assign
labels to catalogs (as well to any items inside these catalogs). That label is displayed in a separate column in all list windows, and you can freely change the text for the 15 labels available to you (using the Preferences). It gets really powerful with the labels when it comes to the Find operation, as you can limit the Find to use only catalogs of a specific label, if you wish.

But labels still do not solve the problem of a possibly large list of catalogs.
Folders come to the rescue, just as they do when you organize your files in the Finder.
