43f is a simple date-based storage management utility based on the forty-three folders concept from David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” program. It maintains 43 folders per year (one for every month (12) and one for every possible date in a month (31), therefore allowing you to store up to 31 daily file sets, 12 monthly file sets, and as many annual file sets as you would like. It is ideal for managing backup/snapshot sets, but should be flexible enough for any number of uses.

43f has been tested on Mac OS X and Linux.

NOTE: 43f is a destructive utility (it is designed to manage—and therefore delete—files), so please proceed with caution, have a backup, run the unit tests, and test thoroughly before deploying!
