Folderscope – Complete File And Folder Management Tool

We have seen many tools out there which allows user to manage their apps, programs, files, and folders. But Folderscope is a newly launched tool that does one thing better than any other software out there – Analyzing and managing files and folders.

It has a intuitive interface and once you get to know how it works, you will realize how important it is. To begin, first enter the destination of the folder or select Browse and select the folder.

FolderscopeIt will then begin to analyze the content(sub-folders and files) inside that folder.

Analyze FolderNow this is how it works, first you select the file or folder on which you want to perform the action and then go to Modify menu to select the action. You can select multiple actions and they will all be added to the Pending Changes tab from where you can review the changes before Committing them.

In the screenshot below you can see that it opens Transfer Files window once you click Copy Marked Files option from the Modify menu. In this window you can select the action and choose the source & destination.

They will then be listed under Pending Changes tab from where you can commit them by hitting the Commit All Changes button.

    Are you serious?!

    This seems like a majorly annoying software that uses an overly complex un-intuitive UI to copy files from one folder to another!

    Beyond marking duplicate files (which I only deduce from the screenshot) what possible uses does it have that your regular windows explorer does not do 1000 times better?

      Here are some common uses(taken from developer’s website).

      -Get a quick and complete overview of the hierachical structure and content of a new folder you have received.
      -Find the most recently modified files anywhere in a folder hierarchy of documents.
      -Find the files and folders taking up the most space on your hard drive, and move them to a different drive.
      -Find duplicate files (files with identical content) in your documents folder and delete them.
      -Reliably copy the entire content of one external hard drive to another.
      -Backup the files from your main hard drive to an external drive.
      -Search for files of a paticular name (or partial path) quickly in a big hierarchy of files.
      -Extract files of a particular type (for example image files) out of a hierarchy and move them to a different root folder.

    hmmm.
    i can now see the potential uses, even though i’m not convinced this is something i can’t achieve using windows Find or command prompt’s DIR command, with practically the same ease. especially regarding things that clearly don’t require smart filtering (copy entire hard drive etc). perhaps its something one feels when you use it.

    i would have loved for this list to appear in the original review.

    I am currently working on an open source solution that will allow you to save file/folder management tasks so that you can execute them with the click of a button.

    I am trying to help one of my customer who has one big folder called DATA and witin this folder, he has further about 30 sub folders for different subjects. The toal size of the main DATA folder is 75GB. He wants to organise his data yearly as the DATA folder has files and folders going back about 10 years now. I have created folers by year (2002, 2003, 2004…and so on) on the Network Area Storage (NAS) Hard Disk Drive. I want to search all the files and folders for specific year (for example 01-01-2002 to 31-12-2002) and copy the results in a folder 2002 on NAS HDD. Is this possible? If yes, how can I do that please and will it create necessary sub-folders for different subjects too?
    Your help in this will be very much appriciated. Thank you.
