Anyway to include this in Services so I can access it via the contextual menu?

There is simply no equal to File Buddy. Sad that its development has ceased. First, it was PrarieSoft's DiskTop, and now File Buddy.

DiskTop! Wow, what a blast from the past. You are showing your age. Remember Symantec Utilities for Macintosh (SUM) as well?

Tachy0n,

Not only do I remember SUM (and viruses for the Mac that actually took down my Mac at the time) but I have my original Apple Switcher diskette AND eWorld diskette (plus, many more)!

File Buddy is alive and well as evidenced by the recent release of version 10 for Mac OS X 10.6 and later.

Trying it now, but immediate observation:

Cryptic DL names are a bad idea. Spell out the full name and version for easy tracking.

Very nice. The polar opposite of "File Buddy 9."
GUI and feature set use simplicity as a model, as it should, since beginners need that.
