Have you ever frantically searched for a file that was either moved or saved to the wrong location? 
You are not alone.  We've all wasted time looking for an elusive file.

Documents: word processing, spreadsheet, text, etc. files.

All Files and Folders: everything on removable media, your hard drive, and network drive(s).

Printers, Computers or People: printers that are part of our network.  (The search for computers or people may only be a beneficial feature for ITS staff.)
