Hazel overview

Hazel is your personal housekeeper, organizing and cleaning folders based on rules you define. Hazel can also manage your trash and uninstall your applications.

Organize your files using a familiar rule interface. Filter on the file's name, type, date, the site or email address it came from and more. And do more than just file. You can set color labels, Spotlight keywords and comments and even archive files. Hazel also cleans, sporting options to clean out incomplete and duplicate downloads. All this is done automatically in the background allowing you to focus on your real work.

In addition, Hazel can manage your Trash for you, relieving you of having to empty it yourself.

What’s new in version 5.3.4

  • Fixed throwing away of files on external volumes when the volume does not have its own trash. Should now behave like pre-5.3.3 where such files would end up in the home trash instead of failing outright.

I'll give it a try, it looks useful, but I will never buy it, no matter how useful. $42? Really? roflmao. To put it in perspective $42 is more of an entire application suite money, not utility money. Most of these small utility apps are between $1.99 and $9.99 on the app store. They should sell it for $9.99 at the most, per version, then have an upgrade fee of half that for a new major version release. Then they could offer a lifetime license for $29.99. That would be fair. It's too bad, when they get greedy, it only hurts themselves. You would sell more copies, and make more money by being reasonable. But, again, I want to try it, it sounds useful. There are other apps that do the same that are not scam pricing though. And from just reading the reviews below, it may not even work anyway... smh

Hideous car wreck of a software -just would not pick up extensions at all. Wasted 4 hours hacking away to no avail. Avoid.

Stick with v4.4.5 if you have not upgraded to Catalina, which I have no intention of ever doing. I will move to a PC before upgrading to Catalina. Tried v5 before paying the rip off $20 for an upgrade. Glad I didn't as this version stinks. 4.4.5 is a much better reliable version that just works. If you are considering the upgrade, I don't even think I would do it if it were free.

This has to be the dumbest "tagging" app I've ever tried. Even the MacOS tagging (which sucks) is better. Set up Hazel rules, it does and monitors nothing. Useless, LOL!

Excellent software and support! Usually I am posting negative reviews about some bad software. But Hazel really is great. Been using Hazel for a long time. Upgraded to 5 and has been smooth.
