Phockup is a media sorting and backup tool to organize photos and videos from your camera in folders by year, month and day. The software will collect all files from the input directory and copy them to the output directory without changing the files content.

All files which are not images or videos or those which do not have creation date information will be placed in a directory called unknown without file name change.
