Sorter makes file organisation easier. It simply helps you organise several files that contain similar characteristics into a single folder. You can put all letters documents into one folder, all images with the word home into another, all music by one artist in yet another folder, etc.
Sorter organises these files into folders which are grouped according to one or more of the following patterns:
- A common name in multiple files' names. For example, multiple files may have a common word(s)
season one. Every file bearing these word(s) will be moved to (by default) a folder named
- A custom name (of your choosing). For example, after searching using the above criteria, you might choose the destination folder to be named
- By file type/format. For instance, pdf files will be put in a folder named PDF, docx files in a DOCX folder, jpeg files in a JPEG folder, etc.
- By categories of the file formats. For instance, pdf, docx and txt files are all documents, hence will be put in a folder named
document. These categories are defined in filegroups
Sorter majorly focuses on file management but most of these operations should generally apply to folders too.
Note: If you want a folder and its contents to be left as is (i.e. not to be sorted or affected in any way), just add a file named
.signore(no extension) into the folder.
