The Data Organizer - A Personal Data Organization Tool

The Data Organizer application was created to save a user's time by providing a hierarchical scratch-pad that allows the creation and organization of textual data, without the need for repeating the steps of creating folders and files or editing and saving those files in a text editor window. It automatically saves the content of the text window when switching nodes (control-S can also be used to save the current content). The standard "edit" key combinations are also supported, and always apply to the text window (rather than the tree control): Select All (control-A), Copy (control-C), and Paste (control-V). Selecting a word with a double-click will automatically disregard a trailing space character, so that passwords or usernames can be pasted from the clipboard without errors.

The Data Organizer application uses a folder named "data" to store all data (created in the folder where the EXE is installed), arranging it in a tree of folders containing text files:

This design makes it possible to safeguard the contents of the "data" folder tree using a source control system.

The Data Organizer application supports the renaming of nodes, which changes the underlying folder names:
