Create rules for organizing and cleaning folders.

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 Hazel

Version 4.4.5:
User interface changes:
  • Fixed crash when editing certain fields using non-Latin characters
  • Fixed cosmetic issues with cancel/save buttons in rule editor
  • Fixed display of + buttons in the rule editor on non-retina Mojave systems
Core changes:
  • Added hidden default to disable querying Spotlight for tags. In some rare cases, this query can take an extraordinary amount of time and can temporarily hang the UI when dealing with tags. To set this default, in Terminal, you can do:
  • defaults write com.noodlesoft.Hazel DisableSpotlightTagSearch -bool YES

invaluable utility I've been using for years and years. But I wanted to post today because I was having an issue with the log file ballooning to a huge size, emailed tech support and got a reply in like an hour. Amazing. And they did provide the support to fix the issue (seems it was an issue with spotlight indexing). The company really cares for its customers.

Hi Alex, Need Help...So far so good... but I am trying to get rid of all "duplicates"... the programme is running now 2 days straight... any way I can speed it up? or what should I do... I am afraid to stop running the program as I am not sure if it will start all over again... Is the program running while my lap top screen is off? Not sure if the program was working overnight!

It's too difficult to really express how powerful this app is, but if you like to automate stuff on your Mac, Hazel will allow you to do an amazingly deep array of actions. It goes far beyond merely cleaning up files on your desktop and downloads folder. The develop is also very helpful and responsive, and the user community over the app's forum is also helpful.

I love automation, but Hazel is just too rough for my tastes. It lasted about an hour on my mac. After 4 system preferences hangs and an infinite loop while trying to import piccies into Photos I gave up on it and uninstalled it. Sorry, life is too short to learn how to use something that I can do with some perl/python scripts.

I need to redownload Hazel 3 and can't find it anywhere. I'm running a late 2011 Mini and Sierra 10.12.6 Any pointers appreciated.
