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.

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.

I needed help, I'm a science writer and thus I'm searching and downloading an avalanche worth of PDFS, docs, & links per day AND my desktop is always in a state of deep chaos. Yes Apple's Use Stack command is great too - but Folder Tidy has ability to write quick tidy commands to sort my myriad files and docs like I want them and how need them. Also, note I'm not a programmer - this little app is intuitive and fast. TY Tunabelly - first time customer too. Just saying :D

Great app for organizing and cleaning up

So many space recovering apps make a mess of things, this one puts everything in folders by type allowing me to go thorugh each on and reviiew manually the mess in my downloads or documents or any other folders, then make smart choices on what to keep, before I run a duplicate app. Keeps me from accidently throwing stuff out.
