Check out Dir Utils, a little freeware shell extension that lets you quickly organize piles of files and folders with just a few clicks. Its  a great utility for anyone who regularly finds themselves organizing downloads and media files. The utility adds five new options to Windows’ right-click menu, including “Unify,” which grabs files from a folder’s sub-directories and moves them all up to the main folder; “Alphabetize,” which puts all files in sub-folders into A-Z folders based on file name; and “Extensionize,” which does the same based on file extensions. In other words, Dir Utils saves you the time you would’ve spent re-organizing MP3s, gathering a seasons’ worth of episode videos, and keeping a hefty downloads folder organized.

Note: The original Dir Utils website is down, but DJNuts.Com has been kind enough to host a copy of the software.
