Droffett is a drop application which "flattens" a folder, i.e. moves all files which are descendants of it so that they are directly inside it.

Droffett can also be used to aggregate a set of files by extension. This process will place all files with the same extension into a folder named after that extension. Specify this option using the Preferences window.

Droffett is very easy to use.

How to use Droffett: Simply drag a folder on top of the Droffett application icon in the Finder or the main window. Processing commences immediately. Use the Preferences window to specify various options (see below.)


• Operation: You can either move the files to, or create aliases of them in, the top level folder.

• Treat Bundles as Files: Application packages, bundles, etc. may be condsidered folders, and their contents will also be moved.

• Rename Duplicates: Once a file is moved any other files with the same name are not moved or are renamed by appending a unique string.

• Aggregate Files By Extension When Done: After the folder is flattened this process will put all files with the same file extension into a folder named by that extension.

Ratings and Reviews

Super - works exactly as advertised!


Simple. Effective.

My only criticism - I’d like to flatten multiple directories in batch automatically - sequentially in a queue or in parallel.

Currently one must do them one at a time, manually.

That takes more time and attention if one has many directories to do ( such as many different Apple Mail mbox folders ).

Love it!


I love this little app. After half an hour of unsuccessful fiddling with terminal commands, this little app did the job in 34 seconds flat for removing 2700 subfolders. Saved me a lot of time and frustration.

Software does not work at all.


This software does not work at all as advertised.

I have fed the software a folder which I wish to be moved into a single directory, Yet all the files remain in their current hierarchy.

I would recommend saving your $9.99
