چکیده:

Information explosion especially in the form of files and folders utilized new software/hardware technologies to satisfy the users’ needs. The traditional hierarchical file system was used as foundation of almost all the file managers for file storage, search and retrieval. In spite of all the benefits of hierarchical structuresfor information storage and retrieval, there are some shortcomings in categorization of massive amounts ofinformation that in mid-term and long-term lead to ambiguity andredundancy in storage/retrieval. In this article, a new file manager, File & Concept Browser (FCB) is proposed that supports multiple categorization. The general attitude is similar to the common hierarchical file managers, but it supports maintaining a file through differentpaths without multi-versioning, redundancy and ambiguity. Theidea was implemented as a software prototype and experimental results show that in addition to avoiding redundancy, using FCB can reduce access time, retrieval failure and user frustration
