Flattens a hierarchcal collection of files
Droffett is a drop application which "flattens" a folder, i.e. moves all files which are descendants of it so that they are directly inside it.
Droffett can also be used to aggregate a set of files by extension. This process will place all files with the same extension into a folder named after that extension. Specify this option using the Preferences window.
Droffett is very easy to use.
How to use Droffett: Simply drag a folder on top of the Droffett application icon in the Finder or the main window. Processing commences immediately.
Use the Preferences window to specify various options (see below.)
• Operation: You can either move the files to, or create aliases of them in, the top level folder.
• Treat Bundles as Files: Application packages, bundles, etc. may be condsidered folders, and their contents will also be moved.
• Rename Duplicates: Once a file is moved any other files with the same name are not moved or are renamed by appending a unique string.
• Aggregate Files By Extension When Done: After the folder is flattened this process will put all files with the same file extension into a folder named by that extension.
