Junk File Organizer :

It is a python program that runs as a command-line tool. Basically, as a lazy  programmer, my desktop or any directory is full of files.
Due to a large number of files, it is a daunting task to sit and organize each and every file. It is a Python script that comes in handy and returns a folder “Organiser” where all the files are organized in a well-manner within seconds. It organizes by size(size), last modified date(date), extensions(exte) or alphabetically(alph).

It creates a parent folder Organiser inside the current directory. First take user input, If the user input is ext
The program checks for each file extension of each file .Then according to the category in which it falls creates the folder
inside parent folder ex: if pdf file it creates PDF directory,copies file there and delete old file. In the same manner it checks for every file inside that directory.

If the user input is size
The programs calculates the size of each file.Then according to the category in which it falls creates the folder inside parent folder
ex: if file size 3kb, it creates a folder LARGE if not created and copies contents there and deletes old file.
File size 1-10 falls under SMALL,
File size 10-100 falls under MEDIUM ,
File size 100-1000 falls under LARGE
File size 1001-16000 falls under HUGE
File size 16000 above falls under GIGANTIC

if date, programs gets the date of each file and present date.Then according to the category in which it falls creates the folder
like today,yesterday, this month,last_month gets copied there.
if the user input is size alpha, gets the starting alphabet of each file.Then according to the category in which it falls creates
the folder like A ,B,C .. gets copied there and deletes the old file.
