I am having a trouble with the large amount of data (1,000s of files) that I am sending to my computer from Labview.

After a while it is impossible to find the file that I want, even if I name the correctly. Does anyone know about an easy searching tool?

Hi hdm,


how do you "send data from LabVIEW to your computer"?


large amount of data (1,000s of files)

Windows gets into problems when there are "too many" files in a directory. Use (more) subfolders or try to generate less files…

Sounds like you need DataFinder - it's an NI tool which indexes all your data files and makes them easily searchable with DIAdem is NIs data management/analysis/reporting tool and it works with DataFinder to help you find data across all of your files.


Take a look at the overview page here:

I have been using for the last few weeks to organise my data from labview, they offer a labview plugin. You can attach metadata to a file to make searching a bit easier.

Hi Guys, 


Thanks GerdW,  and em586.


I am using rinocloud ( as solution. It has cool tagging and comment data tools. I really like how easy is integrate with LabVIEW. 
Only that it is running as a VIP stage. So, if you want access, send an email to the support team and they will give you the access.  I am actually getting use to this new software. I will update more soon.
