ACL Fix is a simple utility that removes the ACL (Access control list permissions) that is attached to selected files and folders. The Password Reset Utility on the Mac OS X Installation Disc allows you to do this only within the home directory of a user. ACL Fix is useful for example when you install Mac OS X using the Archive and Install option, and want to delete the ACL from old system files and user documents. Use at your own risk!
Requirements
Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.5 or later

Does one thing and does it well. I cannot fathom why Mac OS X continues to have ACL problems that end up making a mess out of things.

The file system is UNIX's achilles heal and ALCs are like walking on hot coals for UNIX. This utility easily fixes them.

The only problem I have found is that the interface permits multiple items to be drug into it but will only process one item at a time. It processes entire folders recursively so the problem is not a show stopper but I do need to drag 12 items in and have it process 12 items ;-) not just one.
