Command-line utility to remove file ACL errors.

Overview

ACLr8 is a command-line tool written in Python that will analyze your entire hard drive searching for files that cause the "ACL found but not expected" errors in disk utility, and remove all ACL from them.

Although these errors are relatively harmless, they can be quite annoying and they cause permission repairs to take much longer than they should. ACLr8 is very safe, but of course you use it at your own risk.

What's new in ACLr8

Version 1.4:
  • Restored Python 2.5 compatibility
  • Added Python 3.x compatibility for the future.
  • Code is now also simpler and should be more stable.

Worked like a charm for so many ACL errors on Mavericks 10.9.5. I wasn't sure because it abruptly quit after the remove files state but after running Disk Utility again there were absolutely no ACL errors. Thanks so much!

Can someone explain me why the bloody hell Apple's folk couldn't solve this ancient annoying problem and 'the creator of this program' (yes, 'program' by his own words! Do you remember this word used in the past century?) could? Or they don't care? What is worst? It belongs to the long list of sign of its decadence, which deeply hurts me!

AFAIK, there are not too many apps or tools that unanimously have a 5 star rating - this has and fully deserves it

Awesome.Used it under Mavericks 10.9.3 after restoring from a Time Machine backup. I had a TON of ACL messages in permissions repair and this cleared up every last one!

What a lifesaver! Not only did it clear up error messages that Apple says are unimportant -- it saved me from constantly appearing Beachball and weird slowdowns. Thank you a thousand times to the developer.
