When it comes to organising files, Windows users have become used to the idea of using hierarchical folders, and Windows 7 introduced the idea of libraries. Tabbles works very much like an extension of this method of file organisation, combining a tagging and virtual folder system into one handy utility.
A tabble can be seen as both a tag and a folder, and files can be included in several tabbles - a database is used to maintain links to files to avoid the need for duplication. This system helps to overcome the problem of files which could be organised in several ways; using Tabbles, there's no need to choose between organisational systems as you can use as many as you want.
Files can also have descriptions attached to them and this makes it possible to perform advanced searches for files that match particular criteria, or those that you simply cannot locate. Tabbles can be used to organise bookmarks and existing folders as well as files, making it perfect for managing projects that involve a large number of files.
Many people will regard Tabbles as the evolution of the Windows File System. The introduction of libraries certainly brought about greater flexibility when it comes to organising files, but Tabbles takes things several steps further.
