SyncFF is a drop utility app and service for setting the modification and creation date of folders to the most recent modification date of their contained files (and, optionally, folders.) This way the modification date of the folder matches the modification date of the "youngest" file (or, optionally, folder) it contains. The process is recursive, so all subfolders are processed.
SyncFF is part of the Limit Point Software Utilities bundle. See http://www.limit-point.com/Utilities.html for more information and a list of currently available software. A single donation activates all utility programs, and all upgrades are free and new products are included.
What is new in this release:
- The app now implements a service, available as the menu item named "Sync Folder's Dates To Youngest File." This menu item will appear in the "Files and Folders" section of Services Preferences. Using Services Preferences you can assign a keyboard shortcut to simplify invoking it on a folder in the Finder.
- The File menu now has a menu item titled "Select Folder To Sync..." which enables you to navigate via a dialog window to the folder you want to sync with its youngest file.
- To conform with Apple's guidlines on file system usage, the console log is now stored in the SyncFF folder of the Application Support Folder in your Home's Library/
- A help button has been added to the main window, to access the web page for SyncFF, and a new icon supporting sizes up to 512x512 has been added.
