They can be and if you choose to do it that
way...when you select a thumb, the library
shows which disk the image is on.

You're welcome and if you would like
to give the library a test drive you
may want to try the Starter Edition.

Microsoft Digital Image Starter Edition 2006
is a downloadable 60 day trial version with
much of the functionality of MS Digital Image
Suite 2006.

Once your 60 day trial period has ended, the
program will de-feature to minimal functionality.

Unlike the retail version...the trial does not
have the ability to create VCDs and does
not support RAW files.

Starter Edition 2006

Be aware that it's a 109 MB download....
