DropIt is an open file organizer that works on the principle of file links. File associations are essentially the rules you define for a particular set of files. You can create a file filter by name, directory, size, date, properties, content and regular expressions and assign it to one of the following tasks: Move, copy, compress, extract, rename, delete, share, connect, encrypt, decrypt, open with, download, email, create gallery, create playlist, create playlist, create link, copy to clipboard, edit and ignore properties.

You can add any number of associations. You can even create different profiles and add different associations below, by default there are about seven profiles available, each of them being very useful. Some of the profiles are: extractor, archivist, eraser, gallery owner, etc. Some other features of DropIt are file encryption, folder monitoring, drag and drop interface.

QuickMove is similar software that runs in the context menu instead of a drag and drop function. Unlike DropIt, QuickMove can only perform an action where files are systematically moved. You can create as many rules as you want, but remember that rules are not created before, but the first time you run a task for a specific file type.

The rules are very easy to create and do not include advanced steps. If you have accidentally moved some files, you can undo changes to the log itself. If you want to edit or modify the rules, you must call the Rules menu from the QuickMove user interface. Overall, QuickMove is a simple and wonderful application and the best part is that it runs from the context menu.

Files 2 folders

The Files 2 folder is a simple right click that automatically creates a folder based on the selected file and then moves the file to that folder. If you are working with multiple files, the program offers you two options, whether you want to move all selected files into one folder or move them separately by file name into different folders.

Each of them is good at his job. If you want something more advanced and with more actions, then you can use DropIt. If you want something very simple and simple, you can consider QuickMove.
