Rotate Files is an Automator Action designed to work with the Rename Finder Items Action; in particular it works with files generated by the Make Sequential option.
This option adds a sequence number to the files it receives, but it does not impose any upper limit to the number of files in the sequence; this may be useful in various situations, for example when creating a workflow for generating backup files, but with an upper limit to the number of backups preserved.
Here enters Rotate Files: with this action you can set the max number of files belonging to a certain sequence, older ones will be just moved to the trash.
Moreover you can set the sequence start value and also the sequence step value if needed and you can force removed files to be immediately deleted instead of being placed in the trash.
