Take any disorganized folder and sort it all into tidy subfolders. Use the 15+ built-in rules, or create powerful custom ones to organize your files just the way you want. Folder Tidy uses all available CPU cores for the fastest possible tidying, and can handle TBs of files.

With one click Folder Tidy will sort the files from the messy folder. Imagine having all the chaos sorted into tidy subfolders, such as Pictures, Music, Spreadsheets, Source Code, etc. Or with the custom rules, do things like move all pictures older than 2015 into "Old Pictures", or move all Word documents that have the Finder tag of "Work" into "My Office Work Files".

If it turns out the tidy wasn't exactly the way you wanted it, no problem, just hit the Undo button and everything will be moved back to their original locations. It's even possible to completely reverse a tidy at a later time with new historical undo feature.

Check out some of the awesome features of Folder Tidy:

• Organize your files into subfolders based on the file type and/or rules.
• Use one of the many built-in rules (18 and counting), or create powerful ones based on predicates.
• Choose what types of files to clean up.
• Choose files and folders to ignore during a clean up.
• Choose where to put the cleaned up files and folders.
• Options to ignore aliases, folders and anything with a label.
• Ability to undo the clean up right away or at a later time.
• Hundreds of five star ratings internationally.

Impressive all round

Long story short, I'm a developer and this is the last app I ever would have expected to purchase. I've done my own moving and sorting for years using the command line, (find, rsync, etc..). Because of the amount of folders I have that each have different criteria, maintenance has started taking more time than it's worth to do this properly, and make one tired mistake with a regex, or forget to escape something, and there's a morning worth of repairing to do. This app not only does exactly what I expected it to do, but it does so surprisingly quickly. I have great re-assurance that the macOS native search filters are used to construct queries, and judging by the performance and instant updating inside the Finder - native copy functions too. When you move half a million files with confidence with the click of a button, that is worth the cost of this app.

I needed to organize the mess that was my Documents folder on my MacBook Air, and this program did it in less than 20 seconds (17 seconds precisely). I love this app. I needed this years ago. Saves so much disk space, and makes it easy to find your files afterwards. I love how organized everything is. I thought I had a good system before, but with iCloud things sync strangely all the time causing all kinds of weird duplicates and redundant folders. This app fixed all that super fast.

Saved hours of frustration

I can't say enough about how easy and versatile this app is. I needed to find a few hundred files with a specific extension that were in discrete subfolders of hundreds of parent folders. Using helpful directions from the dev, I set up a custom set of rules and in a few seconds, all those files were copied into a new folder.

I can see several other use cases for my daily routine where Folder Tidy will make a difference.

This app is well worth the money.
