    I want to be able to search for files, folders & move them accordingly. On various conditions like date range (months & years) etc.
    I won't bore you guys with a long thread, but what would be my best option; terminal / automator / applescript?

    With the information given, the best option would be to use the one you know best.

    My next question would be: What have you tried? Be specific.

    I'd then ask how you intend to specify date ranges, and again, be specific.

    Thanks for your reply. I am just learning and am only at the very basics. I was planning to use terminal to:
    sort items from date range in chronological order;
    arrange items in chronological order;
    take items from month and year and move them to a new folder;
    repeat this for the remaining 11 months;
    Probably some flaws here, I'm just about learning the cd command ha.
