Thanks for all the input, that is great.
I use the Brain both at home as well as at work as design engineer.
I use it to open many work documents (templates, procedures, manuals, QC documents, standards) as well as many CAD files, all on the Intranet or my local PC. I also have hundreds of links to supplier websites to quickly retrieve technical info of parts, all linked to emailed quotes and all my orders I placed over the last two years.
I use tags to product groups > showing all suppliers (linked to websites) > each supplier showing contacts (with email links) and hitory of orders > each order showing details, possible links, etc.
All works brilliant - but sometimes so slow.
It seems I cannot use folder links, which seem to freeze the program. so I use shortcuts instead.
Working with CAD computer (64 bit) I got dual screens, one displaying the Brain all the time. When I switch to this screen and click on a thought, that is the point when it happens that I get no response for up to two-three minutes, when finaly the program starts working again.
I take this Brainzipped file home and run it on my computer, obvious it is not connected to the network and therefore might search for links that are not there.
Q1) Is there a way to remove these 'dead' links and/or shortcuts or disable these? Meaning, can I clean up the workfile, creating a home version - all Internet links remain.
Q2) When you suggest to run of a solid state memory drive, does this include running The Brain on this this as well or just the working files?
Q3) Can this be a USB key or memory card, or is is an actual external drive connected to a USB port?
I am running the latest version of The Brain so I do not think the problem is related to the version.
