Excellent program and great feedback from developers.

I agree the icon could be more distinctive but that's a minor point.

For me, as a high volume photographer, FileFinder is almost as important as photoshop to me. I have a bit over 13TB of raw data in my Offline Image Archive and I do not want to use any of all the image database-applications out there (Cumulus/PhotoStation/ExtensisPortfolio/Aperture/Lightroom/and so on) because of the databas-dependent environment these apps rely on. Classical DAM-apps are great in many ways, but not for my archive needs. And this is where FileFinder does the trick for me with the export previews with mirrored path-structures.

I have micro copies of all my off line hard drives locally, and I can fit ALL my images on a USB-memory in my pocket if I need. These "thumbnails" are the ones that I use in the classical DAM-applications mentioned above. The actual high resolution master file is easily located by following the mirrored path wich starts with the disk name.

So - I have access to over 13TB of image data in a snap. And I dont need a xserve, no thousands of dollars in hard drives (just simple external off line ones).

I wish my english was in pair with my entusiasm over this feature, then I could explain my method well and the world out there would stop investing in stupid master-files-always-on-line-24/7-in-a-mega-expensive-disk-solution. FileFinder does the trick.

(yes, PhotoStation uses quite the same method with real thumbnail file objects, but you still MUST use PhotoStation to understand anything.)

Some PPC users have reported "Error (1007) creating CGSWindow" when launching FileFinder 1.3.4 on a PPC Mac. This could be solved by trashing the FileFinder preferences file located at: "~/Library/Preferences/FileFinder.plist" then relaunch FileFinder. Sorry for the incovenience.

The problem came from my HD, not from FileFinder. Developer, I apologize :(

Mag Magna you're right! I forgot to say this happened to my external HD. I'm going to back up what I didn't back up and reformat the whole thing
