DropIt is an easy to use file organizer. Just select options, create your folders and assign the files to go to those folders...and that's it. If the folders don't exist, DropIt will create them for you. Then just drag and drop a group of files on the target and it will move the files to the assigned folders. It's fast! There are other options such as encryption & compression, backup & restore, folder monitoring, ignore or skip certain files and much more. See their website for the list of options. Also it's portable. I cannot think of anything that would improve this application. I think it has everything it needs.
It is really fast. So fast that I wonder if it is safe to use. The Windows OS API way of moving files is to copy the files first then delete the original when done. This is a safe method and takes a bit of time which is why the process is slow. But, DropIt does not seem to use this method. If a file or files become corrupt while moving them with DropIt, you may be out of luck. So I'd be careful with using it with really important files.
Overall it is a really nice organizing application that does its job very well. So if you have a file full of various files this could help you.
I've had great results with DropIt! I was amazed at how many options you have when it comes to choosing the actual sorting...Virtually every sorting criteria has been covered. You can also choose to move or copy.
As others have mentioned, your initial set up choosing directories and file filters may take a little time, but it's easy. Once it's all ready, drag and drop your files onto the DropIt box and watch the magic happen. Everything is sorted perfectly!
If a file doesn't fit your 'profile,' DropIt will ask what you want to do with that file...reassuring so you know it hasn't missed anything.
The interface is a bit unconventional but it's quite easy to use.
When it's running, you just see a "larger than icon sized" blue square DropIt diagram on your desktop. Right-click on it and select "Associations" to get started. Right click will also bring up Help, Options and Profiles.
Very nice app and a major time saver when you sort, copy andor move a lot of files.
Must spend some time to make it comprehensive. But after ..... nice software.
I already had a magic folder-type sorter on my desktop, that had long since fell into disuse. So I was a bit ho-hum about my expectations.
But this is an unbelievably well executed application, for sorting files and getting them to their destination folders.
The fact that it will also sort folders, and run command-line operations - I've been using it for a week now, and have barely scratched the surface.
The handiest feature is the stay on top icon, that can sit anywhere on your desktop, or can even be dropped onto the folder you're working on. You can select a whole group of files, drag 'n drop them to the target, and it will automatically handle multiple file-types and destinations. It can even be invoked from the Rt-Click menu, to automatically process one - or a group of files - you've already selected. It's just a nice piece of work!
This is another inspiring and useful tool. If you are dealing with a lot of different file types this program will help you out. It is easy to install and configure. The addition of the right-click menu option is always a nice option. Two-Thumbs Up! SF supporter!
