Don't, Don't, Don't use this program! All my PDF's are now Preview PDF's and my web graphics now belong to some piece of software I have never seen and I have to reassign them all. And a handful of documents are now blank and I don't know what they are. It fixed things alright.

Okaaaay... I uncompress the file, and it gives me a weird file. What do I do with it?

Two thumbs up! My OS X 10.2.6 system had gotten corrupted -- documents created by the app I'm building were suddenly bound to an "application" that was actually a hidden system folder named "501". I could temporarily rebind an existing document to my application, but every new document was bound to the "501" folder. Of course, document icons were blank. RebuildDesktopX has cured this problem, with the added benefit of making application launching MUCH faster than it was. I suspect this may be due to the system cache file being reduced from 2.4 MB to 188 KB. I'm also seeing newer icons on some of my favorite documents.

This thing works, period. Has never caused even the slightest issue with my Macs and it is recommended by all the usual Mac gurus on the web. That's how I first heard about it, from Andy Inhatko (sp?), well-known Mac guru for at least a decade.

It didn't destroy anything on my machine. Didn't lose any icons, etc. But then, I have a fairly new system to start with.

Needs a lot more work yet! It reverts all my 'open with' settings back to default. There are cache deleters that don't cause this problem.
