    Lifehacker blogged about a Windows only program called Belvedere. Is there a program with similar functions available for Mac OS?

    Belvedere (Windows)

    Belvedere is an automated file-management tool. Using Belvedere, you can assign sets of rules to monitored folders for handling the files found there. You can assign rules to move, copy, delete, rename, or even open files based on their name, extension, size, and creation date and more. If you find yourself doing repetitive things on your computer that don't really require your input beyond being the one steering the mouse, it might be time to turn over the house keeping to Belvedere. Everything from cleaning out temporary directories and keeping your download folder from bloating up to organizing your incoming files by type can be accomplished with a few simple rules that will free up a big chunk of your time. Automation is your friend!

    I believe Hazel will do everything Belvedere will do. It is also a rules based utility which watches folders then does stuff based on any rules you have set.

    Here is a product desription (via Macupdate):

    Hazel website is here.
