The Big Mean Folder Machine 1.3

The Big Mean Folder Machine 1.3I’m posting this partly because I love the name of the software, and partly because it is very useful.

Enter The Big Mean Folder Machine 1.3, an easy to use file/folder management utility. If you work with large file collections (designers, photograpers, producers… I’m talking to you) then this software could be for you.

The software features an industrial-strength moving and copying engine, and it is quite easy to use because it walks you through each decision to be made. You don’t have to worry about file name collisions as the software resolves any conflicts automatically. You can unify files from all over the place into a single folder, or go the other way and split files into several folders.

Usage Scenarios:

  • Splitting large file collections into 4Gb “chunks” for backup onto DVD.
  • Splitting a photo collection into multi-level folder hierarchies by file type.
  • Splitting the User Documents folder into one subfolder per file type.
  • Merging several file collections into one.

Notable Features:

  • Easy-to-use Assistant Style interface walks the user through each decision.
  • Industrial-strength, database-backed, copying and moving engine.
  • Full preview before anything is done.
  • Multiple folder naming schemes.
  • Automatically resolves file name conflicts.
  • Comprehensive EXIF time stamp reading support for digital camera pictures.
  • Customizable date and time formats

System Requirements:

  • Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
  • Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel
  • 1.2 MB Hard Drive space
