AliasCrony

AliasCrony 2.2.0 (FAT


AliasCrony is the ultimate alias manager. It has several features:

  • Since aliases of applications lose the capability to have files dropped on, when the original is on a different volume, AliasCrony can create SuperAlias, a new alias kind, having drag capability always active.
  • It can create aliases or SuperAliases and put them into specific predefined folders, when you’re using the Drag&Drop mode. From its menus, instead, you can select the destination folders by using a speedy way.
  • It can update aliases (also as SuperAliases) on the fly or else through its menus.
  • It can add, to aliases, some useful custom icon, freeing a bit of space on desktop (as before: you can add the custom icon on the fly or else by using the proper menu).
  • You may configure any action of above through preferences and change them with one keystroke before creating aliases or SuperAliases .
  • It can scan all on-line volumes to create lists of:
    • attached aliases,
    • unattached aliases,
    • aliases and originals on different volumes.
  • It can scan also individual folders-disks. The created lists return useful infos about the aliases found, moreover, from these lists, AliasCrony can do several actions:
    • retrieves and shows aliases and originals.
    • links/updates/deletes/moves aliases.
    • shows the Finder’s Info window, about aliases and originals.
    • updates aliases of applications to SuperAliases.
    • trashs the whole aliases list.
