3rd version of Project Manager gains a lot of new features to manage 3D Assets. 
There is most unique from them – the ability to assign custom previews to materials, associate files with materials, and create a gallery of files associated with any type of assets including materials. 
You can also write a description for material and, of course, assign categories to materials.

----------------------
Any who is familiar with a network knows about it.
Windows so works.
I think the "Project Manager" must have ability to delete files.
And certainly a key "Delete" have knowingly placed out separately from the basic keyboard keys.
It is difficult for pressing by accident.

Sorry, but i not plan to remove this ability.

Yes, it moves the folders and files to the bin but only if they are on the local disk. If they are on the network - bye-bye files. I just did a test with an empty folder on the network and it gets wiped out completely! In the rush someone won't pay attention to the pop-up dialog window. Most users hit "yes/ok" or enter by default on any window which pops up.

Files and folders from the local disk is will be removed to the recycle bin.
Before removing pops up a dialogue with the possibility of cancellation.
Have to be very-very inattentive to accidentally delete a file.

Why delete from the HDD???

I don't know if this was proposed before but I have a vital suggestion for the script.
You should remove the delete button from the right click menu and also make the delete key on the keyboard delete just the folder from the script not from the hard disk. Someone will accidentally wipe out his libraries by mistake and will be really pissed off for sure. I hope this gets implemented in the next version.
