Company has gone bad. I emailed sales support three times last to cancel my subscription and they did not. Now I have just received an email letting me know that my subscription will renew later in the week. I cannot can el because I no longer have the app. Support still refuses to acknowledge my emails. I am thinking about contacting my lawyer. Used to be a great company. No longer.....

Forget PF. Any of these are excellent: "Commander One" (FREE), ForkLift, muCommander, Nimble Commander...and some more.

I was surprised today when I was presented with "this license for version 10 has expired", while starting the application. There are so many file management software today on the market, and far better than PF, and without "subscription" scheme, to choose which one to use is a piece of cake. Every day a new file management application coming to Macupdate. Pathfinder and those who are on "subscription" band wagon are losers.

I recently decided to compare Path Finder and Forklift. I love the features of Path Finder, but it's just way too buggy – especially if you use the Quit Finder and use Path Finder as the file handler features. In the end, I went with Forklift. It has fewer features and cannot completely replace the Finder as the default file handler as easily as Path Finder, but is stable and still offers a perpetual license option (you get a year of updates, but you can keep using that version until it no longer runs - then pay again when and if you want updates.)

After switching to a subscription model, the Path Finder developers will have to pay me a yearly "Loyal Customer Fee" of € 50 in order to make me consider a Path Finder subscription.
