NeoFinder and Datainer - Store your media!


NeoFinder and Datainer
Securely store your media






We are absolutely thrilled to announce a new partnership between NeoFinder and Datainer!

NeoFinder was always about making your data storage life easier.

Now we went just another step, and we can help you with storing your actual physical media, too.

Datainer represents the practical “hardware environment”: this modular, expandable storage system provides safe, secure and easy-access storage for virtually all media formats – and it’s barcode compatible: the barcode labels can be scanned through the translucent front flaps.

NeoFinder can not only catalog the contents of your disks, the new NeoFinder 7.1.3 also prints barcodes to stickers that you can attach to your disks.

The icing on the cake for users of the latest version (iOS 1.9) of NeoFinder for iPhone and iPad is the ability to scan barcodes and instantly display the contents of catalogued media: this saves time locating films, images, documents and other data.

Isn’t this simply amazing?

Only NeoFinder 7.1 can generate thumbnails for both Affinity formats, and even add ratings, keywords, descriptions, copyright information, and a lot more.

Check it out now!

(NeoFinder 7.1.1 fixes a small problem in Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9)
