Among the myriad utilities that help you edit file information and permissions, FileXaminer 2.5.6 stands out. In addition to an easy-to-use interface for modifying file permissions and attributes, it provides Super Delete and Force Empty Trash functions—accessible from the application’s Dock-icon menu, Finder contextual menus, or within the application—for getting rid of stubborn files. It also has a batch mode for working with multiple files simultaneously; Finder integration (Command-option-I to get info or Command-option-C to copy a file path to the Clipboard); and systemwide support for contextual menus. Other features let you resize and convert images, edit icons, and edit text files as the root user. FileXaminer even lets you create and delete user groups without having to delve into NetInfo Manager.
