"Network preferences corruption"

June 22, 2007  |  By furrutia1

 |  Version: Cocktail 3.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
To add my to my posting below, I came home today to find that I had no Internet connection. My kids had turned the Mac off, without shutting it down properly. We already lectured them on shutting down vs. hitting the Power switch, but it doesn't seem to stick... When I booted up again, I had no connection. Not thinking of *censored*tail, I went to my Network System Preferences, to diagnose the problem. I tried adding a new connection and after giving it a name and clicking on OK, I got the spinning wheel of death. I then remembered *censored*tail, so I went back to reset my settings to the defaults, and that took care of the problem. I, for one, I'm doing without *censored*tail for now.

"If only all SW were this great"

June 19, 2007  |  By pendragon

 |  Version: Cocktail 3.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Not only is the SW elegant and the interface intuitive, the customer support is outstanding. On my one occasion to contact the developer, the issue was not only promptly resolved, but extra effort was taken to explain why the third party app caused the problem it did.

OnyX is also a first-rate product, but if you want the best, the very very best, this is it!

"Something every Mac user should have"

June 19, 2007  |  By domagalase

 |  Version: Cocktail 3.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've been using it for a long time now and have always appreciated its features. It has a clear and elegant interface. Excellent updates (I've never encountered any bugs) and each version has handled my system flawlessly, fixing my computer's troubles whenever I encounter them. It's useful and powerful, even for the novice user. My only problem was in the past and its long start up time, yet this now appears to be fixed as it loaded almost instantly. Keep up the excellent work! This application is something every Mac user should have.

"Keeps Getting Better"

March 16, 2007  |  By MAC_1984

 |  Version: Cocktail 3.7.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I started using this when it was free, and then paid immediately when it became shareware. The price changed up and down, but no matter I have always liked using it, and the license fee is not prohibitive. I have licenses to the others in this category as well that I happily paid for. The freeloaders are getting to be too much. They want something for nothing, and I recall when this app changed to shareware how hateful all the freeloaders were in chastising the developer.

Bottom line: If you want a very clean efficient means of tidying up your Mac's hard drive, this app will do the trick. I had my mother purchase a license as she is no Terminal whiz. Yes, you can do these things in Terminal, but I have no desire to do so, and I like supporting those who do.

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
10.4.8, POWERBOOK AL 1.25
I've used this product since it came out several years ago, and it has been outstanding and easy to use in every respect. I use it at least bi-weekly and always prior to and after any upgrade/update to any application, including OSX updates, and never, I mean NEVER have I had a problem updating/upgrading anything. Support is excellent. You can't go wrong!

I like the program! it does its job very well. I can't imagine how often I was using it for e.g. cleaning caches. I'm working in a 30 people company and it's my Swiss Army knife for the Mac...

I'm installed this version from more than a month (Yazsoft sent me an e-mail how to download it).
I tried other very expensive utilities, deistallin *censored*tail.
Now I am runnin *censored*tail as a "default" maintenence utility (and I deinstallend a VERY DANGEROUS and very expensive utility; after deistalling this "rubbish" and expensive utility, I had to reinstall Mac OSX 10.4.x) and it works very well.

"DANGER!! EXTREME CAUTION!! DON'T USE!!!!"

October 03, 2006  |  By Brian!!!

 |  Version: Cocktail 3.7.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Ran *censored*tail after experiencing odd system behavior.
Have been using *censored*tail since the ealry days, and believed it to be 100%
safe and effective.

Not any more.

Selected:
Delete all caches
Delete all archived logs
Run Cron scripts
Repair Permissions


When *censored*tail finished, all icons were gone.
All file links were gone.
All thumbnails were gone.
All passwords were gone.


I will never use *censored*tail again.
I will not trust other such apps as well (bad run in with onyx too).

Lucky for me i back up drives and files on a regular basis and restored the entire hd using CARBON COPY CLONER, a real life saver.
