The BMFM 07/17/12
The Big Mean Folder Machine restructures your file collections into folder hierarchies according to a range of criteria.
Ok, right off the bat, publicspace.net grabs your attention with a name that sounds more like a local swing band than geeky, no-frills software.
But then again, they’re good at coming up with provocative names for their apps. Months ago we wrote about their awesome app A Better Finder Rename.
This app allows you to batch rename files that you often get from cameras. You know, stuff like MVI_0722.mov and the always fun Untitled16.mov.
But back to The Big Mean Folder Machine. What does it do? Several things:
- Creates multi-level folder hierarchies from an unorganized folder full of files
- Merges the files from multiple folder hierarchies into a single folder
- Lets you set the maximum folder size for creating a batch of folders
Before the BMFM does any of these tasks, you are shown a preview of the results. And by default the app makes copies of your original files rather than move them – but you can, of course, change this setting.
Hey, we’ve all been there.
Our best intentions and draconian organizational policies can sometimes collapse into an inscrutable mess during chaotic video projects.
The BMFM is a great way to quickly and painlessly reintegrate troubled folders back into a law-abiding project structure or archive them out of your system. Check out the free trial and take back control of your folders.
