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 undo days later if it isn't exactly the way you want.

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.

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.

Worth every penny the first time you use it!

First time was worth every penny. I can’t wait to use this for other projects. Had hundreds of subfolders and it did hours and days worth of work in 4 minutes. This is a life-saver! Thank you so much for creating this. :)

Files dissappeared

My files simply dissapeared from all folders after the tidy process was done. Guess what,t here is no undo option once you close the app! Tried to contact the suport to solve the issue, but all i got is automated response that they wil contact me within 2 business days. This is a total waste of time and money. Probably developer will post an automated reply that they are sorry not to have my expectations. No need to be sorry, you just ruined my whole day which I have to spend restoring my stuff.  You guys better make your app safe and reversible.
Thanks God I have time machine to restore the computer.

We did reply to your email and asked for more information since we weren't provided with enough information to make any suggestions or provide proper help. Folder Tidy does have a full undo feature that is available while the app is open AND there is a warning prompt before quitting to notify of this. Folder Tidy uses the standard macOS move functions so if it fails for any reason, the file stays in the original location. If you can reply to our email and provide more details, we're be more than willing to help out and see what happened so you can find where it sorted the files to.
