Documents Organizer
« on: April 10, 2011, 08:38:54 AM »
Do you know a soft to scan a folder and subfolders and output all in shorcut's mode to a destination folder organized cronologically.
That's :
source folder : By example Y:\datos
to destination folder : by example Y:\Crono
with the subfolders 2011 to make reference to year
containing the subfolder 06.2011 to make reference to month
and finally containing the subfolder 12.06.2011 to make reference to the date.
Able to control years, months, and days of the creation file.
Able to exclude from the source folder some extensions of file.


Best Regards

I'm not sure, because I haven't actually tried to do this but have previously done something similar, but xplorer² seems to be able to handle this sort of thing pretty well.
I would need to read the manual and try it out to be sure though.

You could try Benubird, it handles most all extensions.
Include/exclude folders, subfolders and lots of extensions.
It's made to work with documents mainly, but .exe's are an option.
Not so sure about the dating of folders, I haven't tried that.
It will list all the files you want without actually moving the file.
Free so maybe worth a shot, works on Windows 7.

First sight : publicity

Sorry, but I don't see any relation with what I need.

I have a bad impression of your program.

Perhaps you can make publicity with the subject adequate

Best Regards

I tried this just now, rather quickly, in xplorer².
It can generate the sorted file listing in just about any form you want and with various filters. That should be able to meet the requirements.
Then it can create shortcuts for all the files listed, as an immediate batch operation. The shortcuts are output to the Desktop folder by default, but that default could probably be changed.
Thereafter it gets messy. The shortcuts do not inherit the date. If the shortcuts pointed to a folder name which contained a date, then Xplorer² could sort on that text in the shortcut, so you could get a date order out of that.

None of this is automatic. You would have to do it manually within xplorer², though I suppose you could write a batch job to automate it - or some aspects of it.
An expert user of xplorer² would probably be able to do better than I.

You can download a free trial of xplorer² and try it for yourself: http://zabkat.com/

might be worth studying these to see if they could be modified (they move the files as opposed to creating shortcuts):

At the present moment I think is not enough for my purposes.
The solution or answer for many is reorganize images and videos of a party.
For me when I create a task or project I follow an organization with folders : documents received, documents sent, help received, messages, outgoing special documents and so on. For me is better the possibility to organize in crono folders by shortcuts, and finally if need converto to real links in chronologically order.

Is much powerfull I have seen until now.

Is not enough. I would like a configurable program.

I don't see this program reorganize or create folders in crono order

I think this type of software is far away from possibilities of manipulating simple files.
I have seen in an ERP a way to functional organization of documentation because the docs are created from the program and control real dates of creation and modifications.
For doing this with an external script after the documentation is created I think is necessary go into the metadata.

Thanks Darwin, (I'm a he :) ).
I thought Benubird would work,
but I really haven't understood what is trying to be accomplished here.

Benubird only seems to manipulate pdf files. I don't see how would work in this case.

No it is not portable, but someone could probably make it portable.

Here's a couple of shots I thought would be about the request.
There is lots more in it that I have not tested.
