After using this app for years, today I am shutting it off. In Mavericks (OS 9) with Mission Control the desk icons are continually disappearing.
[Version 3.0.2]

I have used and loved this app for years but now it doesn't seem to work with Mavericks so that's why the one star rating.

Since it no longer works I cannot rate "Features", etc.
[Version 2.5.2]

I reinstalled it and it seems to work now. I notice that the developer, on his website, says it is only good for up to OS 10.7.
Too bad support for this wonderful app has ceased.

I'v been using and liking Data Guardian for years.
Now with version 3.0 and 3.0.1;
The user interface is a disaster.
The "black glass" is virtually unreadable for me.
I was able to uncheck the "black glass" option.
All the previous neat features are gone, no "Copy" buttons anymore.
The "NEW" online manual apparently is for some previous version.
The picture above is also for some previous version.
I hope it is returned to a more usable state soon...

I see a complaint about $14.00 being too much. I paid $19.00 and now I see that I need to pay an additional $7.00 to use this with ML.

$26;00, I'll probably drop it.

User to be a background app. Now when I do a Command + Tab in the finder it shows. Blah...

I would like to see a feature that will improve the terrible font colors in Time Machine.

Dark purple on black doesn't work for me.

I specifically installed this app so I could turn on the user Library Folder.

It didn't.

2008 MBP OS 10.7.1.

Thanks for all the replies.
For the record, chflags nohidden ${HOME}/Library didn't work when I tried it days ago.
But by adding sudo that worked. sudo chflags nohidden ${HOME}/Library.
I'm disappointed that the developer didn't respond with a fix to Lion Tweaks.

The half star is because nothing works anymore. Have enjoyed using Azureus for years, now Vuze.
With the introduction of version 4.7 all versions have quit working. I reverted back to 4.2.2 and none of them work.
"Quit working", Vuze on OS 10.6.8 no longer finds ANY TV shows.
Vuze 4.7 on OS 10.7.1 (MBP) won't even startup.
And yes I have installed Java. Although I wonder about swt.
The forums are a waste of time, nothing newer that 2009.
No apparent method to contact the developer.
[Version 4.7]

Hendrik Holtman says "For official support of iMac/MacPro in a for future release please send me your ModelName and min/max speed for every fan.

However "me" is not a valid email address and I see no other on any of the site pages. Comment on official page has died waiting for approval.
