When hiding files/folders, Hider 2 moves the files/folders into its vault, and encrypts the contents AND filenames. Even if you browse the vault using Terminal, you cannot tell what's inside, which is excellent. When you unhide, the files/folders are decrypted and moved back to their original place. This all seems to work flawlessly in my limited testing, and the interface makes the whole process simple. The ability to have vaults on external volumes is also an excellent feature. One caveat: the encryption/decryption process takes some time (in the user guide it says it takes roughly as long as if you copied the files). For smallish files this is no bother, but for (say) movie files this could be a nuisance. I tested with a folder with 10GB of movie files on a Firewire 800 drive, and it took around 5 minutes to hide or unhide. This would be a 5 star app for me if this time delay could somehow be overcome.

Anyone know if it supports OpenMeta?

Pretty good. A few observations: A short help file would be good, with at least the following... 1) You can load files by doing a File>Open, or by dragging and dropping a selection of files onto the Dock icon 2) You can move between the fields using the Tab key 3) Command + Enter accepts the changes and moves to the next file I will be using this to carry out my weekly scan and tag routine, as I think it will be quicker than using Tags to tag every file individually. It's a bit basic, but for what it does that's not a bad thing. I'd rather it was simple and effective than try to have too many features and functions. A button to go back one file is one addition I'd like to see.

I stumbled across Slink yesterday on the MacBundles website. Looked interesting so I downloaded a trial. Two minutes later it was up and running and I bought a license straightaway. This is a truly excellent product. The setup of my Verizon FIOS router was done automatically, and everything just works. The remote connections seem fast and stable, what's not to like! Great stuff!

Aha! This latest version adds support for open meta tag search, and it works pretty well - well enough for me to spring for a license in fact.

I just updated my version and it says 1.9.2 in the "About Datalore" menu item. Weird that the dev site says 1.2.1.

Looks like the $9.99 offer has expired, so at $24.99 it's a NO from me.

Am I missing something or is openmeta not supported by Datalore? Seems like this would be something to support in a spotlight search tool. I tried entering tag:whatever in the search window like I can do in a Finder window, but got no results.
