When I drag and drop a folder from the desktop into PB (move or copy) a new thought is created into the PB but not the files contained into this folder.

Is this the way it should work ?


Harlan written to me: "Note that there is a difference between importing and making links to folders.

If you make a link, the files and folders are referenced from their existing location - no copy is made. The thoughts that appear in the Brain in this case are not really inside the Brain and thus are "virtual". These thought are not indexed and do not appear in the instant activate list.

If you import on the other hand, a copy of all the files is made and the folders become thoughts. These thoughts are indexed and do appear in the instant activate list."
