If only words existed to describe how much of a pain in the ass this new version of iTunes is compared to its predecessor. Two nights ago, I ripped three CDs only to have them not show up anywhere in the music library. They're gone. Or perhaps they've floated away into the "Cloud" somewhere and will one day re-appear magically when the timing is right. The search engine is problematic and probably my biggest gripe with the latest interface. Instead of bringing me to the album I'm looking for when I click inside the search results, it starts playing a random song from that album in the "top bar" and yet other times it actually decides to bring up the album. The popular Cover Flow view and Sidebar native to the last several versions of iTunes? Gone. Want to know the bit-rate of the song you're playing? Impossible to do so any longer as, I think, just about all options to customize what details you want showing up inside the library interface have been stricken from existence (think year, track number, track listings). iTunes 11 also has a fateful tendency to forget what track is coming up next and on occasion, I've caught it skipping around the album at will for no particular good reason at all - for example - from track 1 to 6 back to 2 instead of the preferred and correct way of 1,2,3,4 and so on.

There's just something buggy and unpredictable about this version and the fact that it's actually hiding CDs ripped into the program makes it a deal breaker worth venting about in my book. In a few minutes, I'll be downgrading back to 10 until a suitable upgrade (or alternative program like Songbird) comes along to challenge lockdown iTunes has on the OS X music players.

One star.

I've been trying to find a program like this FOREVER. Bartender does just about anything you could ever hope to do with the mac menu bar. Hide & arrange icons, create secondary menu's, assign hotkeys for items. The developer put a lot of time and took into account a lot of suggestions by users with this release and it's worth buying. Thanks a bunch for creating what I suspect will become a popular addition on OS X.

Downloaded and tested out the program this afternoon and there does seems to be a lot of potential. Hopefully more features are implemented because I think this might be a must have application... for my mac needs anyways.

I like this program over some of the others, but the auto-uninstaller has a tendency to miss or skip over some folders and files that should have been deleted along with the app. Every so often, I'll go into "application support" and find the folders of programs that were deleted months ago still on the hard drive. Sometimes they're empty, sometimes they're loaded with files.

For 15 bucks it's still worth it. 5 to 10 bucks would probably be ideal but how many other programs are like Xslimmer? I've been using it since 2007 and it's saved me god knows how many gigabytes over the years. One of my favorite apps that's easy to use and has the potential to free up a lot of space on the computer which is particularly handy if you're running low.

A nice feature would be to be able to do a time machine backup upon logging into OS X. Have TME run in the background and perform an automatic backup immediately upon starting up the OS. This would prevent missed calendar interval backups if the computer isn't turned on at the scheduled backup hour.

I've tried all the file recovery programs available for mac and this one is probably the best. For finding files that were recently deleted / thrown away in the trash, it does the most thorough job of any of the data recovery programs out there IMO. Relatively simple GUI interface makes it easy to figure out how to use. Must have app for anyone that's ever accidentally deleted something and wants to try and recover it.

What are some of the changes? Is cloning / copying a partition from one HD to another any faster?

I've been using Transmission since the very beginning. Great download speeds that are equal to or better than other torrent clients. Nice to see the app finally available for different platforms.

I had been looking for a word processor to replace the bloated, lethargic OpenOffice/LibreOffice for a while now and think I finally found one. Slick interface, quick load time and doesn't hog up all my computer resources while it's running. And the best part, it's free.

Kzx72 had trouble on 14 Dec 2011
For unknown reasons, Bootcamp support & VMware tools needed to be reinstalled when my partition was cloned from the main hard drive to secondary.

After running Winclone and copying Bootcamp partition, it took two restarts for the operating system to fully recognized Windows - CHKDSK cycled through a couple times. The right mouse button wouldn't work initially until the support software off Snow Leopard was reinstalled.

To anyone looking to use this program, I highly recommended downloading the CNET link user Tempel provided in an earlier post (many of the others download links were incompatible with my version of OS X; 10.6.5)

Can someone help me out with this one?

I've been trying to create a clone of my BootCamp partition for a while now and Winclone just won't do it.

Every time I attempt to create an image, the program finishes in like 4 seconds and gives a blue screen like error of death in the message log. I've tried switching options under, "When cloning an NTFS partition" in preferences and it still won't go.

Is there like a combination of boxes I need to check in preferences to get this application to operate correctly? Has anyone else had similar issues?

Would appreciate any feedback as it's an application I would like to use...
