3rd version of Project Manager gains a lot of new features for management 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, add materials to favorites.

Files and folders from the

Files and folders from the local disk is will be removed to the recycle bin.

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.
