Recommend an archiving tool for Windows Explorer ?
Can anyone recommend an archiving application (or 'status'?) that works within Windows Explorer?
Let me explain:
I want to have a folder that appears at the bottom of every listing of folders to where I can drag any file that I've finished with but which I still need to keep in case it's useful later on. In order not to get in the way visually it should look like the last folder in the list of folder and files within the current folder.
And then if I cant find the file(s) I'm looking for I should be able to click on the Archive section to see all the files. OR perhaps there is just a global button visible in all directories in Windows Explorer that toggles showing/hiding all 'Archived' files in the current directory.
Does that make sense?
Has anyone built such a thing?
Or is there some better way of archiving that I haven't thought of?

If I've understood you correctly, it seems you want a backlog of potentially useful files sitting in the directory it used to be in, right? Do you want separate folders for every listing? If so, I'm at a loss. I can't think of a way to do this, and I've never heard of any software that does this, though I'm really not all that up-to-date on the latest software and all that. If, however, you're fine with one global folder that contains all those files, then you could create a folder in your C: (or whichever drive letter) called "Archive" or something, then create a shortcut to it that you can copy where ever you like. So in the future, when you're done with a file, simply drag and drop to the shortcut, and voila.
Hope this helps.
