Luxembourg City, Luxembourg - January 9, 2007 - is pleased to announce the immediate availability of The Big Mean Folder Machine 1.2, its easy to use file/folder management utility. With a familiar assistant-styled interface, The Big Mean Folder Machine is an essential tool for anyone who works with large file collections, including digital photographers, content creation, post-production, system administrators, and other creative professionals.

Featuring an industrial-strength moving and copying engine, The Big Mean Folder Machine brings structure and organization by walking the user through each decision. All operations may be performed without worrying about file name collisions; BMFM resolves name conflicts automatically. Unify entire file collections from various locations into a single folder.
