Folder Tidy for Mac
Folder Tidy is a very handy Mac OS X utility that helps you organize messy folders into multiple subfolders by categories.
The main user interface allows you to choose the source folder and the target folder. After you've selected the two folders and clicked on the "Tidy" button, the app will start moving and sorting the files from the target folder to the source folder.
By default, your files are organized in the following sub-folders: Source Code, Applications, Pictures, Movies, Music, PDF, Presentations, Spreadsheets, Word Processing, Archives, Disk Images, Web Locations, Text Clippings, Documents, Folders and Aliases.
Furthermore, you can also add your own category (in addition to the default ones) by using a rule creation system. Another important option is the ability to filter out certain files or folders of your choice from the Ignore tab of the preferences.
Folder Tidy also comes with a few other options, such the ability to hide all other windows when the clean up takes place, to tidy files inside subfolders, or clean empty folders.
After the tidying up has finished, you can browse the source folder and assess the results. If you're unhappy with the new structure of your files, you can undo the whole process by clicking on a simple button.
Folder Tidy was designed for users who usually cluster their desktop or any other folder by constantly downloading or dragging files to these locations.
