Muero, you exaggerate. If your drive were 100% full, it wouldn't allow you to search for any hidden folder.

Cleverfiles, you are wrong. Recovery IS ONLY FOR PRO. See this screen shot...

All black and white, no color. Too slow, like one minute for a flake to descend. Adjustment options do not affect it. Very slow to react to cancel (move the mouse, wait 30 seconds!)(Using OS 10.8.2)

Doesn't work. Save as wants to save as a Web page (HTML). Very disappointing failure of the most basic operation.

Option, option, option... STOP telling us about holding the option key. We Mac users expect a more elegant way to choose the startup. Sitting attached to the keyboard holding the option for 20 seconds at every restart (yes, sometimes we forget what the boot is set for, so we better sit at the keyboard and hold... and hold) is not the best solution.

Unfortunately, BootPicker is no better. This is the most useless piece of software I have ever seen. It does not change the actual ROM setting for startup. It always boots to OS X first, and presents a picker screen just before user login should appear. Even when I am in Windows, and use BootCamp control panel to choose to boot to OS X, this thing STILL halts the startup of OS X and presents its cotton picking picker screen. That is no better than holding the option key.

For those of us needing OS X to have write support for a Windows 7 partition, NTFS-3G needs to add a System Preferences pane like that of "NTFS For Mac" that allows you to choose the writable NTFS partition with Windows 7 as the startup. Until that happens, NTFS For Mac is the best method of having NTFS write support AND a fairly elegant way to set the startup disk.

More often than not, Webmasters choose RealPlayer because it is easy to set it up to block downloads. They may not use it in this manner for all files or for all of their pages, but if they want to block downloading of any of their multi-media files, RealPlayer is tops for that, so it becomes their player of choice. BBC is a classic example of a site that blocks some downloads by using Real files. There is always a way around it, but for Real files, it is not an easy way, so most people give up and are unable to download. Yes, Windows Media Player is much more popular for home computers, but it often has quality problems and isn't easy to setup for blocking downloads. QuickTime is just not popular enough. Most Windows users (not you geeky guys who read this forum, but the unwashed masses) don't install QuickTime unless they buy an iPod.

When I launch IconCreator, it presents a small window titled "Get Specific Finder Items" with two columns, "Name" and "Path". No items appear in either column. There is a "+" and "-" sign at the lower left of the small window and a "Cancel" and "Continue" button. The only menu at the top bar is "IconCreator" and when I click on that, there is no drop list. If I click the "Continue" button, the small window disappears and an even smaller window appears called "Scale Images". It allows a choice between "To Size (pixels)" and "By Percentage". The default is 480px and 100%. Again, the buttons are "Cancel" and "Continue", so I click "Continue. The very small window disappears and is replaced by a small window that says "You have successfully created an icon using IconCreator which can be located on your desktop." I keep my desktop very sparse, so it's easy to see no icon is there and if there were, I would be very curious to see what it is, as I didn't get a chance to select any picture from which to make an icon.

This app doesn't work and doesn't have a Help menu. The ReadMe PDF says "All you have to do is open IconCreator and select any picture from your computer, IconCreator will create your icon and neatly place it on your desktop." It is probably quite intuitive for the developer but not for anyone else.

It's so simple it ... doesn't work. No help from the ReadMe which is just a repeat of the "How cool it is" blurb on the Website. No other documentation, no Help files. It opens to a small windows with "Select Theme Variant" button. I clicked on that and navigated to my collection of ShapeShifter style GUIkits. All files are greyed so I can't select any of them.
