Resource Dropper is an application that removes everything from a file except for its data fork. This is very useful for reducing the file sizes of images that have had excessive image previews added to them.

I just stripped the previews and other data from a dozen or so jpg's using this application without any problems at all. Sure, it can use a progress bar but it did all I wanted without a hassle. Thanks Mr. Single Brain Cell Software!!

Made by an amateur programmer, and it shows. Besides the broken English in the user interface, the program froze up my Mac when I used it on a large folder with many nested subfolders. But it did work fine on a small folder. This program also lacks a progress indicator or any way to stop the resource stripping operation once you start it.

I'm going back to using ZapResForks instead. It runs just fine in the Classic environment. It's polished, quick, easy to use, and doesn't have any of these problems.

Works just fine, does the trick! The only enhancements I'd like are a 'Stop' button, a progress bar to tell how far it's gone through the files it's handling, and a status message saying what file it's working on. Right now there's no way to stop it and no way to know what it's doing while it's running.
