View Full Version : File Management

When I set up my iSilo, it pulled in a bunch of files that were already on my Palm. I need to know two things: First - Can I get a list of the files that would show up in iSilo, to know whether the files I have really belong there (trying to read them brings up garbage). I have already deleted the AvantGo files (I could figure out which they were). Second - I loaded a book, which came in as a bunch of chapters. I created a category and moved all the chapters to it, but that takes a lot of time. Can I move the chapters (for instance) to a folder and have the Palm upload that when I HotSync? If not, is there an alternate way to create and move chapters to the book as a group rather than individually (I searched for a way, but could find no way to mark more than one at a time)?

Just a guess here...
iSilo scans the "Favorite Folders" to find documents. By default, there are two, and one of those probably contains your "garbage" documents. In my setup, I have only one favorite, /Palm/Programs/iSilo, and that folder obviously contains only iSilo documents. You can edit the Favorite Folders (http://isilo.com/support/manual/iSilo/DocumentListView.htm#favoriteFoldersView) in the Document List view under "Tools/Edit Favorite Folders...".
The other option is to select "Options/Document Types...", unclick "Other", and "Use document type filtering". I believe this feature significantly slows down the Document List view, though, because it must open and read every file it finds.
As for grouping documents, it sounds as if you already have the .pdb files and are not converting them (and thus, can't change their Default category). However, if you are installing them to an external card (which I believe you are because of the above), then you can always drop them into a folder (e.g., "/Palm/Programs/iSilo/Some_Book"). Although they won't automatically be detected (in other words, categorized), you can then select "Favorite Folders" (the one with the heart), then the book directory. (Note that the documents will be categorized in their Default category when you open them.)
Let me know if there was a problem with any of the above. :smile:
