Although minimal in features, this handy batch tool creates files and folders quickly and easily. A breeze to operate, Folder Maker's stodgy interface creates big batches of file and folder names. Limited to 20 items in the trial, we're able to easily specify the prefix and suffix and the starting value for numerical schemes. The application named each folder accordingly with the only distinction being an assigned number. The clever undo button immediately deletes the most recently created files in one sweep. Folder Maker creates files and folders in CSV file format as well as TXTs, but file search options and a renamer would be useful. Despite this, folks needing to produce multiple folders will count Folder Maker a worthy addition.
From Skyjuice Software:
Folder Maker is a batch tool that allows you to create dozens of folders and files effortlessly and easily. Enumeration allows you to number your folders and files, while prefix and postfix options allow total customization of folder names and file names to aid in categorization of your files. Enhanced CSV support allows creation of custom folder and file names, provided in a delimited text file. Version 2.1 creates files, CSV support, Zero Padding, Undo, Enumeration, Prefix and Postfix options.
What's new in this version:
Supports newlines as delimiter, improved user interface, supports creation of files
This does exactly what it says it will. I needed to create about 100 folders with specific names and didn't relish doing it by hand. (Considering my machine wigged out and I had to do it again, this tool was very handy!) I liked the option of creating the text file with the folder name separated by commas or line breaks. Free trial version limited to 20 folders at a time and only on the C: drive, but great for my one-time use. If I had need to do this on a regular basis, it would be well worth the price for the full version.
When I tried using it (in trial mode) to create folders from two different files one right after the other, I often got an error that caused the whole program to close. Not a big deal since I was only working with 4 or fewer text files, but would be a concern if I were using it all the time and the same error happens in the full version.
