Resource Remover removes the Resource Fork from Macintosh files. It may be used for moving files across platforms to other systems such as Windows, *nix, via web servers and the internet. Also space can be saved on the local HD by simply removing unwanted resource forks. Using a simple drag-and-drop interface, dragging files on the Resource Remover icon, the resource fork of Macintosh files will be instantly removed. Resource Remover also has automatic file type checking and recursive file checking and fork removal of folder contents dropped onto it's icon.

Architecture: 68k PPC

Separate downloads above for 68k and PPC Macintosh.

WARNING: Will Be Detrimental If Used On Applications!
Classic Macintosh applications are usually dependant on data stored in the resource fork of executable files.

Note: There is no user feedback when removing the resource fork from files with this program and it doesn't inform you when it has finished removing the fork. Resource fork removal is very fast with this app and for a single file, likely done before you could count up to 2.

Q: How can you tell if the resource fork has been removed from a file?
A: Drag the file over onto ResEdit. If there is no resource fork present, ResEdit will warn you about the lack of the fork and ask if you would like to create one (which you can then opt out of).
