BatChmod is an indispensable tool for anyone who absolutely has to edit file and folder permissions and knows what they're doing. I occasionally need to edit configuration files that are buried inside "No Access" folders inside hidden directories. After I'm done, I use BatChmod to put everything back the way it was. It's a great little app. Donation gladly sent.

This is one of my must have utilities. It is simple to use and always does the job perfectly, solving most permissions issues if used correctly.

I love this utility, but this version won't launch for me. I get this message: "'BatChmod' is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash." Tried d/l'ing twice from here and also from the developer's site -- same problem. Also, there is no info here or at the dev's web site saying what's new in v1.7. Running Mavericks 10.9.1 on MacBook Pro 5,5. (Ratings apply to version 1.6.3)

Same problem for me! :-(

Same here! Also, the Beta 1.7 off the developers website exhibits the same problem.

OK, I found a fix.

You need to open the Security & Privacy control panel in System Preferences and Select Allow apps downloaded from: Anywhere.

After installation return to what ever setting you like.

4two4: Thanks, that worked! This appears to be a bug (or maybe an unwelcome design change) in Mavericks. With an untrusted app, you used to get a more benign message than "throw it away", and then you could bypass the warning by right-clicking the app and selecting "Open". You only had to do that once to mark the app as "trusted by me". But I tried all that and it didn't work, so thanks again for figuring out the work-around.

I was going CRAZY when Photoshop was not letting me save files on a recently formatted partition on my SSD onto which I copied backed up files (BACKUP……do it now!).
This little app is so easy to batch change file permissions, & SOLVED my nightmare immediately, 285GB done in an instant……I'm donating right now.

BatChmod is the sure way to force empty trash when even "rm -rf ~/.Trash/*" in terminal does nothing for you. Start BatChmod... right click the icon... force empty trash. Works every time if you screw up and mistakenly bin locked or protected files. Thanks!

A trusty stalwart of Mac support and development, BatCHmod is a huge improvement on using Terminal to fix permissions and ACLs
