When you need to organize files, DropIt can eliminate much of the drudgery of searching and manually opening folders and moving files around.

Drop a group of different files and folders on the floating DropIt image and it sorts them to defined destination folders, compresses or extracts them, opens them with associated programs or performs other defined actions.

You can define how filter your files (by name, directory, size, date, properties, content or regular expressions) and associate one of the 20 available actions to perform (Move, Copy, Compress, Extract, Rename, Delete, Split, Join, Encrypt, Decrypt, Open With, Upload, Send by Mail, Create Gallery, Create List, Create Playlist, Create Shortcut, Copy to Clipboard, Change Properties and Ignore). You can also organize your associations in profiles and automatically scan monitored folders at a defined time interval.

Supported Actions

Currently DropIt allows to perform the following 20 actions on your files and folders:

  • Move: to move files/folders to the defined destination folder (for example to organize images by date and properties).
  • Copy: to copy files/folders to the defined destination folder.
  • Compress: to compress files/folders in one of the supported destination archive formats (ZIP, 7Z, Self-Extracting EXE).

  • Rename: to rename files/folders with the defined new name (using abbreviations to customize it).
  • Delete: to delete files/folders with the defined method: Directly Remove (files are removed, but they could be restored using a recovery tool), Safely Erase (files are overwritten with the “DoD 3-pass” wiping method, to make them unrecoverable), Send to Recycle Bin (files are sent to recycle bin and are still available from there).
  • Split: to split files/folders in parts with a defined size.
  • Join: to recombine files/folders previously split (automatically trying to load missing parts).
  • Encrypt: to encrypt files/folders in the defined destination folder (to protect your personal data).
  • Decrypt: to decrypt files/folders in the defined destination folder (previously encrypted with DropIt).

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
