I was interested in this, so I downloaded the demo. I launched it and selected the usb stick to scan from 'Drives'. When I clicked 'Start Scan', Data Recovery Guru asks for my admin password! (process system.privilege.admin)
What's that about?

Update: So I refused the admin access. Now I see that it has started scanning anyway; files are showing. So WHY was it asking for an admin password?

I too noticed the unexpected yearly charge; therefore I did not buy the upgrade and inquired first. After 8 days I got a response which stated "The yearly upgrade is a new feature we've chosen to implement as the new MacPilot has undergone such a large transformation. You can cancel your subscription to MacPilot via Paypal before it renews itself if you do not wish to continue with its paid usage."
So it seems intentional. My response: IF USE OF THE PRODUCT AFTER PAYMENT IS LIMITED IN TIME, THIS SHOULD BE MENTIONED ON THE PRODUCT PAGE!

mitch_k had trouble on 16 May 2009
This (May 15) version (0.8.235.329) crashes upon launch. The crash report states
"Link (dyld) error:
Library not loaded: /usr/lib/libproc.dylib
Referenced from: /Applications/Utilities/Folx.app/Contents/MacOS/Folx.real
Reason: image not found"

Well, there's no libproc.dylib to be found anywhere on my boot disk (10.4.11). The previous version DID work. Is it Leopard-only?


One more thing: you can "Use Folx to catch download links in browsers" via its Preferences (it appears to run a script to achieve this). Once the Beta expires, it won't run anymore (quits on launch), so there's no way to undo that setting. From then on, when you click on a download link, Folx launches and immediately quits (as it's expired) and nothing gets downloaded...
(Actually, you can still download by right-clicking the link and choosing "Download Linked File As...", but it is a rather annoying oversight.)
