Clever Files

Is a while since I posted anything on this site! Partly because I still see it very much as my ‘technology’ site having ported a lot of my day to day stuff over to the Almerimar Life Site, but basically because I can’t recall the last time I added a new application to my Mac set up!

That’s right I think I went the whole of last year without adding one new application, other than ones related to the iPad like Team Viewer, Air Display etc.

Anyway I have been having a bit of a tidy up of the old office to accommodate all the Macs as we want a combined office and audio studio now that we are doing more radio programs, so while I was at it I decided to ‘sort out’ all the Mac’s – all 5 of them!

Wanted to have them set up for more specific tasks rather than all being able to ‘do everything’, and that involved moving a lot of data round, with the added complications of a couple of hard drive crashes along the way.

Someone had recommended Clever Files, the free (while in Beta) Mac data recovery software, so I figured that I may as well grab a copy as a ‘safety net’ before I started messing around with all the data.

Cool decision!

Well worth taking a look.

  1. Terrible annoying app. Do not download! The free version only shows the files you can recover with the PAID version. AND, it is not trivial to remove the software. Removing it using the way they suggest on their website only tells you “there is nothing to remove”… not very helpful.. Again; do not download!
