WARNING!! This hosed my system and I have found no way to contact the author to help me fix it. SERIOUS. iMac G5, OSX 10.5.8. Followed install instructions and tested by trying to eject a PC formatted flash drive and only could get a message that the drive is busy and in use--and could not be ejected. The drive was not in use or busy. I removed all traces of the app, restarted, and thought all should be well. Nope. Not only that, now NO drive, Mac or PC formatted will eject--all give the same message. I cannot force ejection other than pulling the plug. NOTHING will now eject by any means. I have DiskWarrior'd, permissions, etc. and my system is hosed by this dotDelete app. I don't know who the author is or if this was done as a trick but there is no where to turn to. If anyone out there is able to help me restore my system, please email me. I have a clone from 2 months ago, which would work but I would have to carefully copy back everything updated since that time from backup drive. I haven't used Time Machine. Thanks.
