VVV Publisher's description
from Fulvio Senore
VVV uses a relational database to store its data.
VVV uses a relational database to store its data. This adds a lot of power to the program because it can handle large amounts of data without problems. The database is available in two versions: embedded and full server.
Each copy of VVV contains the embedded version of the database. This version does not require installation and it is invisible to the user: it is the default version and it can only open catalogs stored in the local hard disks. It cannot open catalog stored in another computer in the network, for a series of good reasons.
Often, when many computers are connected by a network, users would like to share the same catalog among all the networked computers. With VVV this is possible, but you must install a full copy of the database server in a computer. That computer will store the catalogs and it will share them with other computers: we will call it the server. Other computers will connect to the server to access catalogs.
VVV is available for Windows, Linux and for OS X (Intel only). You can exchange catalogs between Windows, Linux and OS X computers, and you can connect Windows, Linux and OS X computers to the same (Windows, Linux or OS X) server.
VVV is very fast, even with very large catalogs. Data are stored in a relational database, designed to handle millions of rows, so retrieving your information will always be a quick task.
VVV can show the content of your disks in three different views:
* The first is the physical view, click here for a Windows screenshot. This view shows the content of each disk, you can navigate in the folders structure and see the files contained in each folder.
* The second is the virtual view, click here for a Linux screenshot. In this view everything is organized as a single virtual file system. You can create folders and you can assign physical volumes or folders to each virtual folder. You can assign the same file to more than one virtual folder, and each virtual folder can contain files that are stored in different disks. The virtual view is a powerful tool that will let you organize your data in a logical way: it will save you a lot of searches.
* The third is the search view, click here for a Windows screenshot. In this view you can search the catalog looking for files that meet your specification.
What's New in This Release:* VVV has been translated to more languages. Now the available languages are: Croatian, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish and Ukrainian.
* Looking for more translators. Translators are welcome for other languages: it is a matter of translating a number of sentences using a helper program. You can contact me if you are interested: contact info at the bottom of this page.
* Some translators are not available any more or they do not have free time, so I also need help for completing the translations to the following languages: French and Polish. For these languages only a few sentences need to be translated, so this would take much less time than a full translation.
* It is now possible to expand all the subfolders of a selected folder with a single command.
* It is now possible to choose the language that will be used by VVV.
* Added more powerful search features (see help file).
* Virtual view and search view: added a command to show the selected file or folder in the physical view.
* The Linux version is also available as a 64 bit program.
* It is now much simpler to build VVV from sources, especially the Linux version.
