More about Hazel

The software version is 3.1 and it has been updated on 6/20/2013. Hazel is available for users with the operating system Mac OS X and prior versions, and it is only available in English.

Since we added this software to our catalog in 2006, it has obtained 4,365 downloads, and last week it gained 4 downloads.

About the download, Hazel is a light program that needs less storage space than the average program in the category Utilities. It's a very popular program in some countries such as Sweden, China, and United States.

Changes

  • Fixed bug introduced in last release where busy files were not being detected properly. In the most obvious case, this resulted in Hazel sometimes processing files while they were still being used. One less obvious case resulted in copies of files being made when moving across filesystems (which appears to be an Apple bug). This should now be avoided with this fix.

Sometimes Newton's Law of Inertia is just as applicable to the digital world as to the physical. All too often our files sit around never to be filed. Downloads and other sundry files pile up never to leave. Fortunately, an uncluttered desktop can be a reality.

Meet Hazel, your personal housekeeper.

Hazel works on whatever folders you tell it to, automatically organizing your files according to the rules you create. It features a rule interface similar to that of Apple Mail so you should feel right at home. Have Hazel move files around based on name, date, what site/email address it came from (Safari and Mail only) and much more. Keep your downloads off the desktop and put them where they need to be.

Hazel can open, archive, set color labels and add Spotlight comments. And in Hazel 2, you can now have Hazel rename your files or sort them into subfolders based on name, date or whatever combination of attributes you choose. Hazel 2 gives you the ability to create even more powerful workflows than ever before.
