You can also use AppleScript, Folder Actions, shell scripts, and a myriad of other options.
The 'right' option depends on many factors that you haven't mentioned here. Do you want this to automatically happen any time a file is dropped in a specific folder? or do you want to choose a folder to be organized? or maybe you want something that will scan your entire disk and extricate specific files?
Then there's the criteria for selection - what's your definiton of 'separate files'? Based on filename? file type/extension? maybe file size? or date if you're archiving old data.
So, yes, it can be done - but you'll need to provide more data if you want more specific guidance.

Yes I would like this to happen automatically in one specific folder. These files are InDesign files that I would like them to go into it's each individual folder within that same folder or a sub-folder, they are on average 6mb'. The iNDesign files are the only files in this folder. Thanks
