IDEA: Destop Files/Folders to Date-Folder Catogarizer
« on: February 28, 2009, 11:26:03 AM »
Hi,
small Idea for massive internet users, who download a lot of freeware stuff to the desktop.
Maybe someone could code a program, which stays in tray and waits until shutdown to move all files/folder to a special folder with the Date (and time) as Name (DD.MM.YYYY), except some special permanent files/folders.

I just want move all files/folders into a Folder with the current Date as name and not sort them in different folders with creation dates... The program would be right if such a option is aviable.

I'm not sure if Filenanny would work either. But either way it would help to inform the software authors of your requests via these forums.

A link to Filenanny.zip may be found on the posting below. Not sure if it is the most recent version though or if AK has a DC sub-site now (a very quick search didn't help me).

there are some tools here in DC that partly does this, such as Desktop Teleporter by tchikien and Skrommel's MoveIt.

 :) Try MoveToDate!

Moves files from the desktop to a folder named the current date.

Just edit the first lines to change the source and target folders, what files to ignore and if it should move when the program starts or ends.

Skrommel


;MoveToDate.ahk
; Moves files from the desktop to a folder named the current date
;Skrommel @ 2009

from=%A_Desktop%          ;Where to look for files
to=%A_Desktop%            ;Where to move the files
name=Moved                ;Name of the base folder
ignore=%name%,Notepad2    ;Comma separated list of file names to ignore, no unnessesary spaces!
moveonexit=0              ;0=move instantly  1=move when the program ends

#SingleInstance,Force
#NoEnv
#Persistent,On

applicationname=MoveToDate

If moveonexit=0
  Goto,MOVE
OnExit,MOVE
Return


MOVE:
date:=A_YYYY "-" A_MM "-" A_DD " " A_Hour "-" A_Min
FileCreateDir,% to "\" name "\" date
Loop,% from "\*.*",1,0
{
  TrayTip,%applicationname%,% "Moving`n " A_LoopFileLongPath "`nto`n " to "\" name "\" date "\" A_LoopFileName
  If A_LoopFileName Contains %ignore%
    Continue
  IfInString,A_LoopFileAttrib,D
    FileMoveDir,%A_LoopFileLongPath%,% to "\" name "\" date "\" A_LoopFileName
  Else
    FileMove,%A_LoopFileLongPath%,% to "\" name "\" date "\" A_LoopFileName
}
ExitApp

 :) Both files and folders. If you want only one, put a semicolon in front of either FileMove or FileMoveDir.

Would be cool if you could add this small script into MoveOut as a target folder variable or something like this with option to change the YYYY-MM-DD layout.

Found a Bug, somehow the MoveOnExit option doesn't work.

Feature suggestion: Move the settings into a ini file.

More precision:

4.2 Activity density (creation date). Example: a bunch of files have been created (usually downloaded) between 1830-1930 with little time between them. This pattern, the untypically small interval between creation/modification dates, would be recognized and they would be grouped under "20061116 1830-1930". Then some time has passed with few created files. Another rather continuous file creation stream occurs 2210-2240. They would be grouped too.
