If you could have an app that organised your files...

..what would it do exactly?

I mean for Pro Toolers, Logic users and people who have a lot of audio files hanging around.

I know that there is now project managers built in, but they don't take into account all the other collected audio clutter on your drives.

Would an app that scanned all your drives for errant files be a cool thing? Or just something that moved all mp3's on your system to one place with a key click.

Or an app that let you specify 5 folders to tidy, and then it would move any audio content in those folders somewhere 'useful.

Or ..or, what?

What do you find yourself doing by hand which could otherwise be automated, specifically to do with files?

If there was one killer app which sorted and saved your organisational mess what would it do?

Bevvy have you checked out File Buddy? It's an awesome file management program.

You can sort/search for files by size, duplicates, date modified, name etc etc etc. It's super! There's a demo version with full features btw.

Hey B I haven't seen any "if you could read my mind" apps yet, but AudioFinder is a neat thing to keep track of lots of audio files.

Yep... Audiofinder ($69 donationware). Not many guys seem to know about this - an excellent little app for when you're in Audio Squirrel mode:

This is where the OS makers want to go next with file systems ...

on Mac Tiger it's called spotlight and it is suposed to change the way we look for and find files...

MS was suposed to have a version of the DB file indexing on the next OS but it seems they are having some problems ... but lets wait and see... the best way is still to have a logical dir tree but that's becoming very hard work...
