IDEA: Smart Directory Filer
« on: August 03, 2006, 09:59:41 PM »
I know there has been another request here before about a related thing, so maybe this idea can be combined with others.

In this case im thinking of a tool that would be useful for automatically making subfolders and filing files, based on overlap of filenames.

so for example, if i have in my dir:
Muisc\
 dylan - 01 - boots of spanish leather
 dylan - 02 - ring of fire
 dylan - 03 - isis
 heart of glass - blondie
 dennis - blondie
 the tide is high - blondie

and we ran the tool, it would result in:
Muisc\
 dylan\
   dylan - 01 - boots of spanish leather
   dylan - 02 - ring of fire
   dylan - 03 - isis
 blondie\
   heart of glass - blondie
   dennis - blondie
   the tide is high - blondie

OR alternatively:
Muisc\
 dylan\
   01 - boots of spanish leather
   02 - ring of fire
   03 - isis
 blondie\
   heart of glass
   dennis
   the tide is high

Hi Mouser
This was listed in Snapfiles a while ago and grabbed my interest, but I never really tested it
It appears to match all the requirements.

and screenshot here

from the makers of 'Adobe Reader Speed-Up' that is/was popular.

Freeware.


*edit*
of course theres always 'The Godfather' if its just MP3s

fileseive is interesting but as far as i can tell it really doesnt do what i want.
it creates subdirectories based on alphabet, like \A\, \B\ and sortes based on starting letter of file name.
where im looking for something smarter.
