Editors' review

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.

    Not only is this software confusing it is only necessary for anal retentives who must control to the nth every facet of their existence.

    "Works well, though not sure it's needed often enough to merit the price"

    July 04, 2007   |   By syordy

    Version: Folder Maker 2.1

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
