Annotation file

Mar 24, 2009 at 7:05 PM
This will be great add for all those who downloads password protected files via http/rapidshare (for me for example :).
No need to write passwords on the paper or other places. No more actions like "I forgotted and needed to find it again on website"

Placement:
SynoManager -> Add -> URL... :  A WINDOW is displayed with a TEXBOX for links to put in.

In addition for annotation pusposes in this WINDOW should be also:
 - CHECKBOX captioned "Add annotation" by default unchecked
 - one-line EDITBOX

Example:

INPUT
  We paste to TEXTBOX:
    http://IP/Linux.iso.001
    http://IP/Linux.iso.002
    http://IP/Linux.iso.003
  We check CHECKBOX to enable EDITBOX and paste to it:
    "Password for this linux release is LINUX_2009"

OUTPUT
    Downloaded files in previously set directory:
    Downloads/Linux.iso.001
    Downloads/Linux.iso.002
    Downloads/Linux.iso.003
    And also a txt file (combination of "annotation" word and first file name from TEXTBOX with no path)
    Downloads/annotation_Linux.iso.001.txt
    text file will provide as off course with text: "Password for this linux release is LINUX_2009".

1. This should also be provided for SynoManager -> Add -> File...
2. Annotation file can store not only passwords but other custom/important data for this download
3. One annotation file for all links currently in TEXTBOX / currently attached torrent file.
4. Easy way to work with packed password protected archives.
5. Sometimes you may download for example: http://installdemon/files/1766263.rar
    This is a fake link but with no information about download content. The only way to remember password for this file is while creating a new download.
6. Sometimes you download something and wanted to unpack a few month later. 0-50% chances that you will not find correct pass for the archive.

With annotation file this is as simple as operating in one folder with data on Synology DS :)
