Why is such an app needed?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / November 12, 2012 3:33 AM PST

Given how most of this is simply done with file/folder permissions, why would I need an app.

My advice is to get to the command line to list the folder contents, change the permissions and eject this app since it's uncalled for and dangerous.
