Directory Sort

I am a new user of Everything and intend to use it primarily for offline storage searches. Is anyone aware of an application that could take directories/files on separate external drives and index/tag them with specific terms (music, games, movies, etc), then the tagged directories/files could be referenced/arranged in a separate directory tree under the relevant categories (music, games, movies, etc) which could be virtually linked like a symbolic link. The new directory tree could then be potentially available to the internet like a FTP directory (assuming the external drive is online).

The point of this would be to skip external drive directory/file sorting individually, and simply tag relevant folders/files by category (or use file type) and have everything virtually sorted in a new directory that can be easily configured at will in a new directory structure.

Does this exist already anywhere? If not, how hard would it be to develop this?

All relevant/helpful replies would be appreciated.

Currently, Everything only indexes filenames, size and date modified.

Everything does not follow folder junctions on NTFS volumes.

You may wish to try file lists to index your offline media / folder junctions.

Tagging files is on my TODO list.
