  3. Americans waste nine million hours per day searching for misplaced items. On average, people spend a year of our lives looking for lost items, according to the National Association of Professional Organizers. Imagine the things you could do if cleaning up your computer saved some of those hours!

    We have found a solution. We are using Organyze 2.1. It helps you get more from your computer by helping you manage your files, folders and emails more efficiently. Now finding files is very easy – it doesn’t matter where the files are saved; Organyze finds them in an instant. This is much, much faster than doing a keyword search or manually hunting through folders and sub-folders for files you need.

    By retrieving files through labels, Organyze helps find important files or emails one may have forgotten about. check this site:
