How to minimize data loss in case of mistakes or problems

Please read the known issues page and backup your data frequently while using this or any database program!

Do you really need such large pictures?

The biggest performance hit when using NM Collector Software is large pictures stored in the database. Here is a very useful article regarding how big your pictures really need to be on computers. If you still insist on using large pictures, please do the following to help ensure optimal responsiveness of the program:

  1. Select Options > Pictures > Save In File System.
  2. When the system tells you the files are transferred, allow it to delete them from the database.

Please keep in mind that you can download and use the full feature version of NM Collector Software for 30 days with no purchase.

After 30 days the software converts to the free version which has fewer features.  The following features are not available in the free version but none of your data is lost and the features will be restored if you chose to activate your copy:

Where to Start?

NM Collector Software is designed to be run directly from a USB flash drive with no installation required on any computer!  To use it in this manner, simply download the USB option and extract the contents directly to your own USB flash drive. 

NOTE:  Recently I have confirmed two cases of USB flash drive failure.  I am happy to replace the flash drives but cannot replace your data.  Please backup your data frequently just in case.

For various reasons, some people prefer to run NM Collector Software from their computer's hard drive.  This can be achieved by copying the NM Collector Software files to their hard drive.  A suggested best practice is to run the program from your hard drive and copy the entire installation to a USB flash drive for backup.  This gives you the added benefit of being able to share your collection with others by running the program from any computer off of the USB flash drive!

However, not all files are required when running off of one operating system so separate Windows, Mac, and Linux downloads are offered for this reason.  Also, many Windows users want to run an installation program to use software from their computers.  For that reason the Windows download provides a windows installer.

So, where you start depends on how you intend to use NM Collector Software.  The following table provides instructions for each option.
Please contact me if you have any problems with installation.  I have successfully installed it on all Windows 32 and 64 bit systems as well as Mac and Linux so it should install on your system as well!  Thanks!


Do not extract to "C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) directory in Windows Vista or later. NM Collector Software will not work if installed to those directories.

A Note regarding your Privacy and How to Protect it.

This program does not plant anything on your system. Nor does it connect to the internet unless you click a request for help or click on an information link from within the program.
