This used to be a great application. It has been revived but it simply doesn't work yet. I purchased it (version 10b2) recently and it gave me nothing but memory errors: "There is not enough memory to complete the search. Select fewer files to compare and try again." I have 12 gigs of RAM and terabytes of free space. This message is simply wrong. So I reduced my search until I was comparing only two small photos. Same Error. So I wrote the author. Two weeks went by and no response. So I applied for a refund from Kagi.
File Buddy will compare file names or dates but it won't compare resource or data fork sizes and contents. This is a TRUE file comparison. Are the files identical regardless of their name? Sometimes you have photos that are renamed or a new thumbnail has been applied; in order to compare them you can compare the contents of the data fork and determine if they are identical regardless of the name or thumbnail. This programme used to do this brilliantly. Now you get errors every time. I tried it on OS 10.7.2 and 10.8.3 (freshly installed). It simply doesn't work and the author doesn't respond to email even when it means he will lose the sale.
