Help and Support / Loads of Folders Help

Why did you make this?

Before I had access to timecode, after recording sound on location I liked to keep all the audio files organised so the editors would have an easy time of syncing them up. Usually I would organise the files by Slate or Scene numbers. This meant I was regularly creating hundreds of sequentially numbered folders by hand. So I made this app to help!

What is the difference between Loads of Folders 3 and 4? (geeky details)

Loads of Folders 1 - 3 are written using scripting language called AppleScript and wrapped in a proper interface using AppleScriptObjectiveC. While I still think that AppleScript is an amazing language, and is great for automating folder creation, as the development tools evolved it became harder to update the app with new features ect.

In 2021 I decided to port Loads of Folders to the current Apple programming language Swift. This comes with many inherent benefits such as speed and support for new macOS features, and will give me the ability to add new features to the app down the line. I decided to limit support of Loads of Folders 4 to the latest macOS (macOS 11 at time of writing) to maximise these benefits.

However I know some customers wont want to upgrade to Big Sur, or are using hardware that cant, so I am planning on providing minor updates and bug fixes for Loads of Folders 3 for as long as possible.

Which Version should I use?

If your Mac has macOS 11 Big Sur or later installed I recommend using Loads of Folders 4.

If your Mac has macOS 10.8 to macOS 10.15 you will need to use Loads of Folders 3.

Go to the Apple menu and click "About this Mac," if you are unsure what version of macOS you have.

How do I Buy the App?

Click on the "Download from Mac App Store" badge on this website or search the Mac App Store.

Do you offer a Demo version?

Not currently, I will be looking into options for this in the future. However Loads of Folders 3 is shareware so consider downloading that first if you want to get a general idea of how the app works.

How will I get updates?

Updates are now handled by macOS. If you have automatic updates enabled you will get them automatically when a new version is published. Otherwise go to the App Store page and hit the "update" button.

Do you offer an upgrade for people who purchased Loads of Folders 3?

Yes! Unfortunetly there is no way to automatically carry over a license from a non App Store app to App Store app, so please send me an email and I will send you a Mac App Store code to unlock Loads of Folders 4.

Do you offer a Demo version?

Yes, the download on the page is a shareware version. When unregistered the App is limited to 30 folders. Buy the app to receive a serial number to register and remove this limit.

How do I pay?

I currently accept PayPal payments and Bitcoin

If you do not have a Paypal account click “Paypal Guest Checkout” and you can pay with a credit or debit card.

After the payment is received I will send a serial number to the email address you entered when paying with PayPal. Serial numbers are currently sent out manually so there may be a bit of a delay depending on your time zone.

How do I register the app?

After you have received your serial number, click Register in the main window of the app, then enter your username and serial number. All limits will now be removed.

How will I get updates?

The app will notify you of new updates when they are available. When you see this go to the Loads of Folders menu in the apps menu bar and click Check for Updates to see a list of changes and a download link.

I lost my serial number or it is not working, how can I get a new one?

Click here to request a new one.

Users who purchased prior to version 2.6 will need a new serial number.
