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

Used this to restore a folder that had become a package file. Worked like a charm! The icon is disgusting and super sketchy looking but it works great.

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

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.
