Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

DiskWarrior 2.0

DiskWarrior 2.0 -- Alsoft has introduced DiskWarrior 2.0, the latest version of its data recovery and directory optimization tool. In addition to its lauded directory optimization, fully functional preview feature, and near-magical CD-ROM that can start up a wide range of Mac systems (see "Fighting Corruption with Alsoft's DiskWarrior" in TidBITS-486), DiskWarrior 2.0 adds DiskShield, a new feature that checks the validity of any directory information being written to or read from your disks. In theory, DiskShield could prevent directory damage from occurring in the first place and alert you to potential problems before they grow into catastrophes. DiskWarrior 2.0 also includes the capability to graph fragmentation in disk directories so you can get an idea how much an optimized directory might help. DiskWarrior still lacks traditional disk optimization and brute-force data recovery offered by other disk recovery products, but the DiskWarrior CD ships with Alsoft's PlusOptimizer, a disk defragmenter that can be used on Mac OS Extended Format (HFS Plus) volumes. DiskWarrior 2.0 is $70 plus shipping; currently the download-only version remains at 1.1. Upgrades from previous versions of DiskWarrior are $30 plus shipping. [GD]
