As said, this trusty unrar utility still succeeds in cases where similar utilities for whatever reason fail. Thanks to the developer!

I much appreciate this application. It is free, a gift to the Mac community. It displays not only installed fonts (well enough, imho) but fonts not installed as well! - given my needs the feature I value the most. It has also been stable, as yet (still running 10.3.9 here...).

Side thought on stability: FontDoctor (or other font managers with such built-in features) may be of help to detect and even repair fonts which could cause FontDoc (and perhaps any application using fonts) to behave unstable.

While this application certainly could improve, or rather evolve, if it would not I still consider it a gem which I will continue to rely on until its best features comes with Apple's Font Book, or any other related application which I will probably need anyway, for activating/deactivating fonts, etc...

To the Developer: Thank you!

It is not entirely fair to call this a review, since I have not tried the sharp/paid version, only the demo. But I would still like to comment on how very promising I found the demo compared to any program I have tried before, in that it did seem to accurately locate drives and their hierarchical contents, otherwise almost entirely lost to the world. Partition maps were correctly identified as well, when even the second most promising utility out there did only locate the first of three partitions.

The huge drawback with this demo is, in my opinion, that it does only allow one to view its (impressive, admittedly) way of locating everything (at least as far as I recall it), i.e. no actual recovery permitted. This is unfortunate since it has happened to me before that apparent files actually points at entirely different contents on damaged drives. So, dare I pay for the licence at the risk of ending up with software able to recover, say, an apparent image file in fact pointing as some (part of) a sound file or something else...? Being desperate (and welthy) enough, I just might...

I would easily give it the highest rating had I the chance to ascertain its ability to actually recover files as well as it locates their (again, apparent!) whereabouts. Giving it five stars for its locating wizardry seems inappropriate, at least given my questioning as to the restriction of the demo. A demo allowing for at least a certain amount of recovery would be fair, it would seem.
