2014- Quick and first glance seems really useful tool under OSX10.9 still...
[Version 0.9.0]

19/20. So who doesn't want to pay less?
Great Mac application that does consistently what it is designed for. Users and archivists! Anyone who maintains libraries of files.
[Version 4.4.2]

[Version 4.92]

Tried for 12 hours (16/11/13) using 10.9. Some downloads ok, others serial crashing from same site; interface too dumbed down as it doesn't remember incomplete downloads (or their origin);
Big Up- it doesnt cram CPU cycles until several d/l are tried above the default 3 limit. Unconvinced as yet.
[Version 1.1.3]

Interface quirky. D/l and bought as part of a MU bundle I think. Didnt try before as other app was useful under SL.
Now thats died need something, but way too intense CPU ~ 138% + on 10.9 and way hotter than i want to run my MB.

Upgraded due to file corruption and space concerns after a decade away and now using Intel Macbook at Snow Lp etc.

Functionally not a lot different as others say, but having the utility and being able to examine details of file and volume structure that "OSX just takes care of" and "fragmentation isn't a problem any longer"is comforting.

Haven't yet made use of eDrive but noting that my 200GB main partition only has a largest free space of 400MB indicates that a lot of file chopping will be done daily that is unnecessary CPU and disk overheads.

That is the value of a tool that can identify and raise user awareness. The lowest rating I have given is value for money, but that's because I can knowing what I'd paid in the past. I have plenty of other free/ shareware utilities that I use so not churlish enough to not want a professional tool from time to time, especially when on a next model machine and OS.

Will this version crash my browsers, refuse to play vids (BSOD) or 'recycle' pages ad-infinitum nauseatingly like the last 2 versions have; creating mayhem with on-line apps and sites that poorly use code to 'manage' subscribers anyway?
All good reasons to avoid IMHO. Oh yes, and losing 4 hours of my life each time to 'test' beta software that is never formally released in full form (because it always accompanies the next 'beta' activity).
And after 24 years using Macs, exactly why does a MacX care or need iOS or Android crap in its code?
Were these guys trained by IBM; "true blue because we lead!" Yeh right!

Prior versions:
New Folder button dialog goes behind current Save dialog when activated- impossible to bring to front and requires a crash of the app being used.
Random- loss of recent folders listing;
Random- adding of a folder to recent that I know wast accessed manually, but a background process may have.
I'm a hobbyist and analyst- I save data of all types; some I dump to a sorting folder, other must be categorised and filed immediately by type/ contributor/ subject etc.
Whilst it performs vital functionality, it is not perfect or stable. Used since OS 6 or 7 and then not again until new MacBook under 10.6 SL in recent years.

Didnt work, pure and simple. Using search isn't UI friendly. No activity on findings, no download performed on X10.68.
[Version 3.1.6]

Really Virtualruffy - something doesnt work so you blame the user? Nice analysis. No doubt your professional opinion is welcome advice to your clients.
