Inc. today announces the addition of custom tagging capabilities,
allowing users to organize files and photos stored in their FileShadow
cloud vault by using custom search tags.
Users can select one file or as many files as they want to adjust. They
can add new tags, or edit or remove any auto-generated tags that aren’t
relevant to their files in the vault.
“One of the built-in features of FileShadow is an extensible metadata
store. We’ve enhanced the system by allowing user editing of the
metadata tags,” said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. “With
FileShadow, customers can collect all of their content, and fine-tune
the metadata tags so they can efficiently locate their files.”
When a file is copied into the FileShadow vault, the service
automatically generates searchable metadata for each file, including
location (GPS), optical character recognition (OCR) of PDFs and machine
learning (ML)-generated tags for images. By using machine learning,
FileShadow provides superior search capabilities, allowing the user to
find files quickly.
For example, a picture of someone golfing might automatically generate
tags such as golf, golf ball, golf club, golf course, professional
golfer and sand wedge, even if those terms are not in the file name.
As a result of the automated tagging feature, users can quickly find
images related to their search term. With this new FileShadow update,
users can also adjust the terms associated with their files. In the
example above, users could add the term “putter” and delete “sand
wedge,” making their tags more relevant to content depicted in the image.
FileShadow builds a metadata system for all files, regardless of their
storage source. Sources include cloud storage (iCloud, Adobe Creative
Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive
and OneDrive for Business) and local storage (macOS, Windows Desktops,
Windows Virtual Desktops, Drobo network and direct attached storage
(NAS/DAS) devices*). The service provides a single, secure vault from
which to search and access files.
The FileShadow Service is free of charge for up to 100 GB of data.
Subscriptions are available for more storage ($15/month for 1 TB;
$25/month for 2 TB; each additional terabyte is $10/month).
Subscriptions for FileShadow for Virtual Desktops are available for
$25/month for 2 TB, and each additional terabyte is $10/month.
FileShadow is a service that aggregates files from multiple cloud
sources, Windows Virtual Desktops, Windows PC and macOS desktops, and
Drobo network and direct attached storage (NAS/DAS) devices into one

WorkSpaces, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, HVE ConneXions VDI
Solutions, IOXO Workspace Technology, Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop,
