Find Any File 1.8.9b10 - Search your disks for files using various criteria (beta). (Shareware)

macupdate.com - fa %age


Find Any File searches your local disks for files by name, creation or modification date, size, or type and creator code (not by content, though).

As there are other tools with a similar search operation, here are the special features unique to Find Any File:

  • Has a new hierarchical view of the found items, making it much easier to browse 100s of items (see the screenshot).
  • Can run as root user, finding really any file on your disk, even those that are hidden from normal users.
  • Can save queries and run them again later.

Unlike Spotlight (i.e. the Finder's Find command), it does not access a pre-built database but searches the chosen volume directly. This allows you to find any file, even those inside packages and others excluded from Spotlight search. Hence it is great for finding system files, for example.

On the other hand, it may take a little longer than Spotlight, and it is only fast on HFS(+) volumes. But even on mounted network volumes of a Mac OS X server it can still be surprisingly fast.

Hence, this is not an entire replacement for Spotlight but it can come handy in certain, if not many, situations.



Version 1.8.9b10:
  • Deleting files with "/" in their name works again.

Keep Drive Spinning 2.0 - Makes sure that a connected drive never goes to sleep. (Free)

macupdate.com - fa %age

Keep Drive Spinning is an applet that makes sure that a connected drive never goes to sleep (that is, that it never spins down).

Normally this can be controlled using the Energy Saver preference pane in System Preferences, and that should be your first resort in dealing with the problem, rather than this or any other third party software. However, some external drives (e.g. Western Digital's MyBook drives) do not respect the System Preferences settings, so for them an alternative like this is needed.

This applet simply creates a launch agent that tells OS X to touch a hidden file on the selected drive once every minute so that the drive stays awake.

Launch agents are built-in OS X technology and persist across reboots, etc., so you can run this once to set-it-and-forget-it. You can find the launch agents made by Keep Drive Spinning in the LaunchAgents folder of your user's Library folder.



Version 2.0:
  • A possible fix for drives falling asleep under OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Keep Drive Spinning's launch agents now write a small amount of data to the drive instead of only touching it. If your drives continue falling asleep unexpectedly, complain to Apple or your drive manufacturer that your drives are falling asleep during active use.
  • Recompiled as an Cocoa application. (Note: On OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and higher, the standard security warning will still complain the first time you try to run the app, but it will work. See the Read Me file for instructions.)
  • Users on OS X 10.4 Tiger and OS X 10.5 Leopard need to run the AppleScript source code directly. This source code is included, and only requires opening the file and then clicking the big, friendly Run button.
