For those who do not always have access to Time Machine or any other means of backup, Harald can be a true life-saver!

Key features:
  • Easily mark any file/folder for protection directly in the Finder

Whats the difference between this and using the Finders lock file command?
Select file>Get info>General>Check the "Locked" checkbox.
It too will warn you if you try to move/delete the file and allow you to cancel the operation.

There is no real difference except that Harald makes it easier (and that it doesnt really lock the file(s) "behind the scenes" to accomplish what it does ). Just select the file(s) in Finder and invoke Haralds hotkey and you're all set. No need to open any get info windows and click any checkboxes.

I guess you could say that it falls under the same category as for example AppZapper, where in that case you might as well use spotlight to find the preferences and support files associated with a certain application, but it simply does this for you.

Hope that explains things. :)
