What is it?

Tracker is a personal search tool and storage system that allows you to
search and enhance your personal data with the minimum of fuss.

It allows you to find the proverbial needle in your computer's haystack
as well as providing a one stop solution to the organisation, storage
and categorisation of your data.

What does it do?

Tracker trawls through your data and organises it so that it can be
retrieved extremely quickly later on via simple searches.

This organisation puts your data into categories so that application
like photo managers and music players can instantly find relevant
content automatically

Tracker enables you to tag your data with keywords which can be used to
find related information or to group and categorise your data further

Tracker lets you extend your data with additional metadata
