I am in the 90 day trial of PP, and so far my eval isnt going very well. So before I go on to the next product, I want to figure out if there is a way to fix it.
I have a Dropbox that I am using to sync my files to all my PCs, and some folders are shared with co-workers. 90% of the files are pdfs that we have scanned and placed in a folder structure. I am wanting to use a document manager to help manage all these files. I installed the 90 day trial, and pointed PP14 to the Dropbox folder. I really like the way PP14 manages it, I can click a folder, start scanning and drop the results right in that location, a real time saver....
Now for the problems...
It seems PP creates 5-6 supporting files in each folder, ini, ini2, ptn, ptn2, .ppinfocache, etc. In many cases these files take up more space than the actual files themselves! Dropbox doesnt have a way to "filter" files that get syncd, so all these files are now on Dropbox, and it has nearly doubled my storage usage. Also co-workers that share folders, are now seeing these files. I am the only one wanting to use a document manager, and need to clean all this up. Is there a way to have PP14 keep its index, thumbnails, ini files in another directory instead of the actual content directory?
Here is a sample directory, PP14 has created 5 files, and 25% increase in storage space. These PP files are also syncing to my android phone, etc.
In many cases, these supporting files take up more space than the actual files themselves.
All these "extra" files that paperport creates
