How do you handle file and folder management on your Mac? The Finder, right? Finder is adequate for handling a few dozen or even up to a hundred files or folders.
When you get into the thousands you’ll need a man’s tool to do the job. If Sears Craftsman made Mac apps to manage, sort, organize, move, copy, and back up thousands of files, this would be it.
A Man’s File Management Tool
File management beyond the Finder is reserved for those Mac users who literally deal with hundreds to thousands of files on a regular basis. Photo files. Documents. PDFs. Music or video clips.
Whatever the file and folder requirement, the right tool makes the management process easier.
Sorterox is the man’s app for sorting, organizing, and handling files and folders.
If you’re swamped in files then you know the problem. Too many files, too many folders, not enough places to put them all. Sorterox is an app that gives you quick and dirty useful tools for moving, handling, searching.
How is this for a simple interface to get started?
That’s just the beginning of selecting files from multiple locations then moving to another location.
Rules can be applied to the process and processes can be saved to be reused later.
Adding files and folders to Sorterox is drag and drop easy.
Drag them to the drop zone and the details show up in the list above. Drag them to the Dock icon and Sorterox launches.
Sorterox can sort files within folders and do so in the background.
Even better, you get a log of all the actions. Sorting can be limited or expanded via select criteria.
That includes file time, creation date, modification date, and more. This is also a good way to back up specific files from one location to another. No copying by hand or drag and drop. Just click and the back up takes place in the background.
Caveat? This is not your mother’s file and folder management app. It’s a serious app not intended for casual use (though the back up process is not complex) because you determine the rules to handle files and folders. Once set up, though Sorterox makes quick work of many hundreds or thousands of files.
