From the DiskTop Fact Sheet PDF:

Do you ever need to launch an often-used application or document quickly? Then you need DiskTop™, the sophisticated file manager that anyone can use. DiskTop has a powerful find feature that allows you to define detailed search criteria to search through multiple volumes, hard drives, and CD ROMs for missing data files or applications.

Your search criteria can be by file name, file type, file creator, file size, creation and/or modification date. And once you find the files you are looking for, DiskTop will display the hierarchical path you follow to reach the file, or let you launch the file directly from DiskTop.

DT Launch lets you place your most often-used items in a convenient pop-up menu for instant access. You can quickly add or remove files as your needs change. Gone are the days of frantic searching to quickly launch the items you need.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k PPC

System Requirements:
• Macintosh Plus (Classic II or greater recommended)
• System 6.0.4 through OS 9, 2 MB RAM
• Hard Drive required

Good to have v4.0.2 too, mrdav. Thanks.

I just realised that I still have a copy of the floppy disk for v. 4.0.2 that I purchased originally, so I have decided to put it here as a Disk Copy 4.2 image for historical reasons. An interesting thing is that it shows the software is attributed to Gil Beecher as author and CE Software as copyright holder. No mention of Prairie Group on this version. I have noted these in the author/publisher on this page and added a screenshot showing the contents of the disk.

DiskTop is useful for deleting hidden files from floppy disks that were unknowingly written thanks to Classic Mac OS or Mac OS X's various habits. Commercial floppies may contain them because the owner inserted the disk without realizing that the write-protection tab was disengaged. This program is superior to FileBuddy (at least the versions I've tried) because it deletes files directly, whereas FileBuddy seems only to be able to move files to the trash. But this creates a hidden "Trash" folder on the disk, which would have to be moved into itself to be deleted, resulting in a Catch-22. DiskTop immediately deletes the file, and allows you to eject the disk in the application before the OS has a chance to write any hidden files back again. You can usually tell which files are not originals by the date created, which this program shows. To see all hidden files, you must go to the "DiskTop" menu, select Preferences..., and select Level: Technical.

Works for me...

EDIT: No longer! Seems to be down for real.

Could it be that they have finally stopped selling this?

Looks like it...

Here's the final archived page that I could find via the WA ( June 01, 2018 ).

Hmm...the page at the purchase link does not load. Could it be that they have finally stopped selling this?
