Altering the Network storage structure

The Software tree allows to create, rename and delete software categories.

Creating a group

  1. Right-click the parent group (to create a first-level group, right-click the root node);
  2. Click Create group in the context menu;
  3. Type the name of the group and press Enter.

Renaming a group

Click Rename in the context menu or select the group and press F2. Type the desired name and press Enter.

Moving nodes into a group

  1. If you need to move multiple nodes, select them using your mouse's Rectangle Selection or your keyboard's Shift and Ctrl.
  2. Do one of the following:
  • Drag the selection with your mouse and drop it onto the title of the target group;
  • Right-click one of the selected nodes and use the Move to group menu item.

Deleting network nodes and groups

To delete one or several nodes or groups, select them and press Delete on your keyboard or use the Delete option from the context menu.

Warning! Deleting a network node is an irreversible operation. All the data connected to the deleted asset will be permanently lost. Consult the Contents of an asset file section to find out what exactly is being delete

Warning! Deleting a group is not the same as "ungrouping". All the assets inside the group will be deleted as well.

Working with storage files directly

The Network storage structure fully replicates the structure of files and directories inside the Storage directory, as described in the Network storage section. Therefore, it's possible to create, delete or rename groups and move assets between them by performing corresponding operations over file system objects, which can be done in any file manager. TSD will react to these changes automatically.

Right-click any node and choose Show in Explorer to quickly locate a directory or file corresponding to the node. This will launch an instance of Windows Explorer navigated to the target directory. If the selected node is an asset node, its file will be selected.

You can also use this function when backing up data, copying, transferring to another TSD user, etc.
