FileUtility is an easy to use yet very powerful little Mac OS X application and service for:
· Moving the data fork of a file into the resource fork, then deleting the data fork.
· Listing all resources in a resource fork by ID, type and name.
· Deleting a file's data fork.
· Deleting a file's resource fork.
· Deleting a file, folder or folder contents (i.e. without moving to the trash.)
· Displaying a file's fork sizes.

It is recommended that you use FileUtility with caution as its operations are undo-able.

Main features:

  • Flip Delete Data Fork:
  • Move the data fork of a file into the resource fork, then delete the data fork. If a resource fork does not exist, one will be created. In either case the data fork data will be appended to the resource fork.
  • Delete Data Fork:
  • Delete the files data fork of a file.
  • Delete Resource Fork:
  • Delete the files resource fork of a file.
  • Delete File:
  • Delete the file immediately (it is not put in the trash.)
  • Delete Container:
  • Delete the container and all its contents immediately (they are not put in the trash.)
  • Delete Container Contents:
  • Delete the container's contents (they are not put in the trash.)
  • Show Fork Sizes:
  • Show the files total size, data fork size and resource fork size.
  • Dump Resources:
  • Generate a file that lists all resources types and IDs, then display it. (Note that a resource fork can contain data, and not just resources. So, a resource fork may have a non-zero size, yet have no resources listed.)
