This tutorial can help you to learn how to sort your files into folders with a simple drag&drop on DropIt. For example you will be able to organize your photos into dated folders, to organize your documents by file type, to separate your media by tags and much more.
All the data is there, but date created and date modified are both based on when the file has been created/modified locally, so in this case when the file was downloaded from the SD card. Thus if this information is the only information available (for DropIt), it makes sense that the above requested feature is not working as intended. Looking forward to better support for this!
DropIt supports 4 date and time sets: Created, Modified, Accessed, Taken. The first 3 sets are available for all files without problems because are stored in files as normal properties. The last set instead is only for image files and (like camera model and other abbreviations) is taken reading Windows properties. As I said, a better system to read Exif data will be implemented in the future.
It would be great to have that functionality though, because right now, if you have lots of lone pictures that were taken on various dates, it just creates day folders for each of those lone pictures. So you get a Year -> Month -> Day -> One picture.
When you use these variables I assume that the folder is automatically created in the destination pathI am using, h:\\Images\\%YearTaken%\\%MonthNameTaken%\\%DayNameTaken% in 4.Destination Folderand dropit keeps skipping all the files I want it to move even though they do have the date taken data.
You can use creation or modification file dates to do it, using abbreviations for your purposes. I recommend you to read the official wiki for more info, such as this page: =howto:customize_destinations
FYI: I am scanning using scansnap and saving as OCR file but scan snap just puts the date of scanning. I prefer to scan multiple files rather and use dropit to help rename and file them appropriately.
Also, I want to rename a scanned file by the date on the document, not the scan date. I am using abbrv %FirstFileContentDate%. However in many docs it just says unknown even though the document has a date on it. Please advise. Thank you.I have been trying different methods so that I can finally start going paperless. I am hoping DropIt will be the solution. 59ce067264
