Review: Find and view invisible system files with Kilometre for Mac

View invisible system files using functional file manager, Kilometre for Mac.

Even though it's an excellent file browser, the standard file manager for Mac is lacking some features related to working with invisible system files. Kilometre for Mac aims to provide some extra features that are not supported by the Finder. Despite being functional, this file manager has a dated look and few features beyond displaying invisible files.

Kilometre for Mac downloads quickly and installs without much hassle. Technical support did not appear to be available, though. There were no user instructions, which would be a deterrent for some because the interface was not intuitive and the features were not easy to find. The program looks like a very basic file manager, but one that was in place 10 or more years ago. The menus have no graphics to speak of and all options are controlled from drop boxes in the top menu. The functions for hiding and displaying inv isible files did work well for those users who need that capability. Additional features allow users to view creation, backup, and modification dates for selected files, which could be a helpful option. After copying a folder, the program also allows automatic merging or replacing of folders with the same name.

For users who need to show invisible files, Kilometre for Mac may work well, but other users may find it less helpful. Even though functional, this program could use a complete interface makeover.
