This is an absolute must if you do Web Development on the Mac. MAMP Pro saves me so much time!

Really great program for keeping Folders or Drives synchronized. Gone are the days of manually running rsync or some other utility—with Synk you just set up a synchronization rule, turn it on, and from then on you will always have up-to-the-second synchronization.

I think the price could be a bit lower, but in the end the ease of use and stability of this app justifies the price, especially if you use it to keep many drives/folders in sync.

One note of complaint though, and I'm not entirely sure it's the fault of the program: I had this running on my early 2010 Mac Mini Server to keep a live backup of the OS drive, and I had to turn it off due to extremely high CPU usage. It would fluctuate anywhere from 60–140% of 2 cpu cores (ie-140%=100% first core and 40% second core). However, I run several scripts on my 2007 MacPro, including a live backup of the OS, and cpu usage is negligible. I have no idea what the issue is with the Mac Mini.

Awesome, awesome application! If you use Photoshop and use Photoshop brushes, this application is absolutely indispensable. This should be part of Creative Suite!

I needed a program today to recover some photos from a CF memory card. I found Disk Drill and gave it a try. Using the free version, I was very quickly able to find the files that I needed to recover and recover them. I actually got distracted for several minutes before recovering the files that I needed, because Disk Drill found way more deleted files than I ever expected!

Disk Drill havs a very simple and easy to understand interface. It's not overly cluttered, and yet it manages to guide you clearly through the steps needed to recover your files. Once you scan a drive, it brings up a list of every file that it has found—all grouped by file type and with various columns of information to sort by. Each file has a label next to it estimating the likelihood of recovering the complete file, and you can also use Quicklook to preview any of the files on the list.

Overall, the free version of the software is very useful, and looks to have other useful features that I haven't tried yet. Based on this, I would certainly consider purchasing the paid version in the future if the extra features were useful to me.

Highly recommend this application!
