How can I keep file tags when I move them to another folder in Windows XP?

Nina July 23, 2010

I read the articles about the free tagging programs TaggedFrog TaggedFrog - Cool File Tagging App for Windows Read More and Tag2Find. From the comments of the first one I understand that it is location based and if I move the file, I lose the tags.

Is it the same case with Tag2Find? If so, can you recommend me other tagging programs? I use Windows XP. Thank you in advance.

    From what I've seen on Tag2Find's forums, it looks like moving the files will cause them to lose their tags. The program is database driven, so changing the file structure won't update the database, leaving information missing when it doesn't know where to look for it.
