I wanted to manage my PDF files that were lying in separate folders. But since they were now have grown much in their sizes and some of them were old that do not support the new versions of adobe acrobat reader, so I was unable to manage them together. Then I searched for the tool and found PDF toolbox. It proved to be very helpful as it solved each and every problem of mine.
