Please note: today's discount can be applied to either the Standard or Professional versions of Ultra Recall!

Ultra Recall is a personal information and document management app that gives you the power to manage all of your data, regardless of its source or location, in one centralized spot. With Ultra Recall, you never need to remember which application holds your data -- all of it is instantly available on demand, no matter where it's located.

What kinds of data are we talking about? How about all of your Microsoft Office files, all of your Outlook messages, appointments, contacts, and notes, any email program that supports the .eml format, websites bookmarked in all of the major internet browsers, and every file on your hard disk, including ZIP archives? Even images, text, online documents, and clipboard data can be fully organized into an on-demand database with Ultra Recall! Populating Ultra Recall is ultra-easy - just drag and drop, copy and paste, or enter your information manually.

When it's time to retrieve all of the information that you need on a topic, just enter your search term into the Quick or Advanced Search, and Ultra Recall will display all of your matching items. Quick Search retrieves a list of matching items in a flash, or use the more detailed Advanced Search to pull information out of the database with surgical precision using logical operators! Each of your data items comes with an attributes list that tells you everything you need to know about that file.

Finding your data is just the first step. Everything that you need to view, organize, and work with your data is neatly contained in Ultra Recall. Use the integrated web browser to view your bookmarked sites, or the rich text editor to open text files. Images display in the image viewer, and the native email message viewer, contact editor, and form viewer round out the arsenal of convenient features. Of course, you can always elect to open web pages and documents in their associated application, but with such robust integration, you may never need to leave the program!

Ultra Recall Standard Edition ($49)

Pavi Johnson Hi, can the standard edition offered here open previous version databases, specifically version 4 Professional?

Thanks, /Pavi

Kyle A Yes, if it's not encrypted, but some features won't be available (forms, hoisting, sync, etc.).

Kyle A All 5.x updates are included, regardless of when released. There would only be an upgrade fee for a major release (v6), which won't be happening in the next few months.

_*_ Thank you for clarifying.

I have another question(s) about the program.

Is there a way to create multiple Tabs with different labels and information contained within them?

As it is now, upon click the "new tab" button (to the right of the existing tab), it simply copies the tab and the contents. If I delete the information in the newly created tab it deletes all the information in both tabs.

I am at a loss the purpose of the tabs as it is now.

It would be great to have say, in the left-hand pane a tree-list item titled "Trees" and then a number of tabs to the right with labels and information for things like, "Fruit Bearing," "Spraying Times," "Harvest Times," etc.

Also, can the standard version import websites?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Kyle A Within each tab, you can navigate, select, and even hoist (in the Pro edition) different items and locations in the tree. When you switch tabs, the selection and hoisting will be switched to reflect that tab's information. You can also lock a tab title to the currently selected item (on the Tab menu).

I'm not sure what you mean by "If I delete the information in the newly created tab it deletes all the information in both tabs." Yes, if you physically delete an item from the database, it will no longer be visible in any tab. But if you select another item in one tab, that item will be selected again when returning to that tab.

Yes, you can import web pages in the Standard edition, but the Std edition doesn't index the page content for searching.

Nick Kobe I am somewhat concerned regarding the database. Is the entire file stored in the database? Is so, what protection is built into the software to protect the database content from a database that becomes unusable? Is there a limit on the size of the database? Does the database size impact the system's speed? If files are stored in the database how do you export them should you choose not to use the software any longer? When exporting all the files in the database, assuming they are stored in the database, how are they names and into what directory are they stored? Thanks!
Jun 3 2015 at 9:52am Copy Link
Kyle A Yes, everything is stored in a single file (.urd file extension). It's a SQLite database, which is very robust and unlikely to become corrupted (of course, it's always a good idea to keep backups of any important files so that you can restore a good copy if you experience disk problems). Using a database is actually crucial to maintaining decent performance as the size of your data grows. Most of your questions are answered in the links at the bottom of this reply.

You do have the option of linking, rather than storing, documents in UR (and if located in a subfolder of the .urd file path, the file will be referenced with a relative path, so the .urd and linked files can be moved with the link remaining intact). The content will still be indexed, but the document will remain outside of the .urd file.

Regarding exporting, you can always export all content stored in the .urd file, with any imported document exported in its original format. You specify the directory to export to (subfolders will be created when exporting recursively). An imported document will be exported with the same filename as the original file when it was imported. See here for more details:

_*_ Kyle A, let me ask after reading your response above about the Tabs.

Is it possible to have multiple tabs with unique titles and unique information in each tab?
I am not sure what the reason is to click and add additional tabs when it simply copies the current and all its contents.

Can I have a left-hand pane tree item with multiple right-hand window Tabs all different from one another with different information under each tab?

Thank you
Jun 3 2015 at 4:30pm Copy Link
Kyle A Yes, each tab can have a unique title and information. After opening a tab, you can navigate to any item in the database, hoist to a particular location, etc. Normally, whatever item was last selected will be used for the title of the tab, or if an item title is locked in a tab, that item's title will be used for the title of the tab. Hoisting is used to limit a particular tab to some portion of the tree.

bvssunnydale Hi, I have a 300MB in an askSam database [all text] - would this be too much for UR to import? Or no problem [I'm a registered user of UR Pro 4]. Thanks.
Jun 3 2015 at 5:40pm Copy Link
Kyle A Shouldn't be a problem. See here for how that is done (pretty old, so I don't know if it applies to all versions of AskSam):

_*_ @Kyle A, thanks for letting me know how this works. Unfortunately, hoisting is only in the professional edition. To pay $20 extra dollars for one feature is not worth the added expense.

I just purchased RightNote here on Bits last week. However, I really liked Ultra Recall and would have purchased, but the extra cost is too dear for one extra feature that seems very necessary.

Thanks for all your help and hope you do well in this promotion.

Jim McGowan Quote from "_*_": "To pay $20 extra dollars for one feature is not worth the added expense."

For clarity, there's a lot more than "one feature" in the Pro version that's not in the Standard version.

Perhaps hoisting is the only feature you feel you will use in the Pro version, but there are certainly many more features in UR Pro.

Pavi Johnson Hi again, my database is encrypted. I just want the possibility to open it on Windows 8. If I re-save it without encryption on a Windows 7 machine, could I then convert it to version 5 and use on Windows 8 (with standard edition)?

Best, /Pavi

HJ B I downloaded and installed this and I looked at he help file. It is still not clear to me how this works.

Can I point the program to my desktop or to some other area of my system, and tell it to collect all pdfs or all MS word files? Or must I selection each file, one by one?

LM Stafford Can URecall import the current Treepad .tpd format files and keep any of that files embedded graphics completely intact? (I assume it will import th. .hjt format files but the graphice are typically lost in the importing process.)
Kindly advise. Thanks.

Mister User Question for Kyle at Kinook Software:

Would you please explain the process of "hoisting" and "un-hoisting".

Thank you very much!

Best regards, Mister Lee
Jun 4 2015 at 3:11am Copy Link
_*_ @Jim McGowan, of course I meant the one feature (Hoisting) I spoke of in the sentence before the one you copied. Pulling the second sentence out removes it from its context and thus gave you the ability to make the point you were after.
Jun 4 2015 at 3:16am Copy Link
Kyle A @Pavi Johnson: Yes

@HJ B: You can import (or synchronize, in the Pro edition) all files in a folder recursively.

@LM Stafford: Here are the instructions on importing from TreePad. I think it will include images, but you'll have to try it to verify.

@Mister User: You can select and then hoist an item in the tree (Tree | Hoist), and it will become the root of the tree in that tab (to limit what is displayed in the tree to a section of the entire tree). Unhoisting reverts back to the My Data item as root to show the entire tree again.

Is there a way to split notes, rearrange them and joint them or several notes together.
I always ask this because as soon as someone does this I will be very interested

Jim Witherspoon Will this version of UR run under Windows 10 without any problems?
Jun 4 2015 at 11:06am Copy Link
Kyle A @Peter User: To split, cut and paste text from an item into the tree, or use the rich text import and specify a delimiter to create multiple items during import.

To join, see

@Jim Witherspoon: Yes, UR functions normally on Windows 10 in our tests.
