Using MindManager’s Map Part – File Explorer to find lost folders

I just “lost” some folders when I moved them from one disc to another. In Windows Explorer you cannot see the folder “organigram”. You can only see the the contents of one folder at a time. So hunting for the lost folders was getting a bit frustrating.

Then I remembered the MindManager – File Explorer map part. It also maps folders. My process was:

  • Open a new map
  • Open Map Parts > File Explorer
  • Add an All Folders part
  • Browse to the parent directory where you think they are “lost”
  • The folder structure is added to your map.
  • You can spot folders that have folders in them. They have plus signs!

Thanks MindManager now I have found where I “hid” the MindManager 2002 icons! Next time I must take more care dragging and dropping.
