The only reason I can't give this wonderful utility five stars is if you select the move to folder button AND you are moving apps that have the same name, it will ONLY PRESERVE ONE APP (the last one to move will overwrite all of the rest and I doubt you could count on which would be last). This could be a problem if you want to keep multiple versions around on a separate SnowLeo partition.

So, USE WITH CAUTION. Probably most won't care or have that problem.

Wow! Downloaded, ran and identified 42 PPC apps all in under 60 seconds. Also alerted me to the fact that as an Intel machine running Snow Leopard that all PPC apps are still valid so no need to delete them. Great little App!

Sioshu - Apple's System Profiler's limited options ( other than viewing a list of apps ) was the genesis for writing PPCtoTrash. Moving to Trash or folder and viewing the app at its Finder location are things people moving to Lion would want to do.

Yes, I know it's easier to use an application like you've developed. I was just responding to someone who was having difficulties, that's all. I'm sure your application is very good and helpful. But I was concerned about your warning -- even though it's also in every other application as well. Sorry, I didn't mean to cause you any undue problems or seem to criticize your application. I should give it a try myself. It's a pain in the ...... to do it any other way.

I tried to access your website so that I could send the crash report... I can't access your site: "Safari can't open page". Version 1.02 still crashes when I click on 'Scan'.

i think we discuss functionality and quality, not feelings
to combine them with rating is just insane.

PPCtoTrash helps users manage PowerPC apps that won't run due to the rudeness initiated by Lion.

Preferences are greyed out. Does not allow choice of drive(s) to scan. Some of mine are running Lion, others are running Snow Leopard. Would like to use PPCtoTrash to scan only drives running Lion.

Why not boot into the other ( Lion or Snow Leopard ) partition and run PPCtoTrash there?

No matter what partition you boot from, all partitions get mounted on desktop and PPCtoTrash will scan all mounted partitions. I would like to choose what partitions to scan.

(1) The unused preference item is gone in version 1.01

(2) There are no plans for enhancements to the freeware but a paid version with more options is a possibility.

I haven't got Lion yet --- but I can eject unmount the other partitions/drives on my system.

I booted up in Lion, then I ejected all my other partitions/drives and ran the PPCtoTrash Scan. It showed me the PPC applications ONLY on my Lion drive. I selected them all, moved them to trash and when I rebooted all my drives got mounted and Lion now runs considerably faster
