Abstract

In a highly decentralized document management system, such as comprising any number of workstations, hard drives, servers, and mainframes, sometimes it is desirable to allow an individual user of the system to select how a particular storage device is to be used with regard to a certain type of document. This can be useful for enabling operations such as storing private documents on removable or networked drives. Proposed here is a system by which the various storage devices on a network can be classified in three general ways, the different classifications of storage device affecting how various document types are treated by each type of storage device.
