Please be aware that the link to the dev's site above lands on a page that shows only three OS X apps, none of which are FileUtility. Going to the MAS and clicking on the FileUtility Support link lands on a blank page. While I haven't used this software, I have used other apps from Limit Point, and I tried to contact the dev, but no answer. I'm just a bit concerned about apps that are recently updated here on MU whose support seems to be invisible. In the case of Limit Point, I hope this is soon corrected as I do like the several apps that I own from them.

I haven't tried it but I can see a defect. The headline says it "deletes resource forks" but the detail description says it "Moves the data fork of a file into the resource fork, then deletes the data fork." Moving the data fork into the resource fork then deleting the data fork does not delete the resource fork, it just allies it with the data fork. Why would you want to do that? The reason for deleting a resource fork is to shrink a file size for better use on the web. I need to do this every day. The utilities I used to use for that purpose ceased to work in OSX so I took the issue up with Lemke Software. Now, GraphicConverter does the job properly though clumsily. OK it's not free (nor is FileUtility) but it's a damned excellent tool that does many things well and the developer is responsive and not greedy. Lemke Software has been a tower of support for the Mac community for many years and I would urge anyone seeking a flexible, comprehensive graphic tool to buy a copy of GraphicConverter.
