FolderOrg is a Folder Action that can be attached to any folder. Once attached, FolderOrg will organize new items added to the folder into sub folder named with the current date. This helps to keep track of when items were added to a folder. It's perfect for your Downloads folder.
What's new in FolderOrg
Renamed FolderOrg from FolderOrg X. OS 9 is long gone and is no longer supported, so no need for the distinction.
Better compatibility with Safari download files with the .download extension
Opening FolderOrg from the Finder will allow the user to set some preferences
Option to open the dated subfolder in the Finder when an item is added
Option to activate (bring to front) the Finder when an item is added
Option to set the modification date for the added item to the date and time the item was added
Can operate as a 'helper app'; can be set as a post-processing app. Might be useful for FireFox/Camino and other apps that allow post processing of files.
Much faster performance; many file operations performed with UNIX shell instead of the Finder
I have no idea how to make this work, which is a shame, perhaps its only for Geeks but the restriction of injections in El Capitan means my downloads folder won't get sorted because I cannot load EasySIMBL or SIMBL
Very Usefull, Works like a charm! This should be a standart feature in any browser or even better built into the system.
I am surprised the last review is from 2005! To my knowledge there is still no better option then this script or am I missing something?
Useful utility. However, I have experienced an annoying bug - from time to time 1 or 2 files downloaded long time ago and located in my download folder (parent folder) get moved into the current download folder. Happend more than once. A little scarry - what else can happen to other downloaded files?
