File Archiver

Move files from an initial folder to a new folder based on file age (using either 'Last Write Time' or 'Last Access Time')



File Archiver is free for Commercial and Non-Commercial Use. That said, if you find it useful, please consider a donation.

What's it do?

It's pretty straightforward - specify the initial folder (the folder you want to clean up), the minimum file age, the maximum file age, and the destination folder, and click "Go" -- this program will scour the initial folder, and move all files that match that date range to the specified new folder with quite literally the click of a button.

But Why?

Good Question - Do you have that "junk drawer" folder on your Desktop or "Documents" folder that is getting unruly? Want to clean it up but don't know where to start?

Enter "File Archiver" - now you can find files and folders that you haven't touched in years -- and move them to folders accordingly. Want files that are more than 5 years old moved? Set the the Minimum date to "1825" (365 x 5) and the Maximum date to something ridiculous like "99999" -- any file at LEAST 5 years old (and the folder structure behind it) will be automagically moved to the destination folder.


Requires .NET 4.6.1 or later.
