For those who live in the distant past

File Buddy 7.6 is still available for individuals using Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X 10.1-10.2.8. We no longer sell File Buddy 7, but if you would like to use it feel free to do so with this license:

SkyTag Free Public License

— Quote taken from SkyTag web site

The Free Public License (works also with 7.1)
File Buddy 7.6.3 (and, of course, older versions) is provided as is, with no warranty or support by SkyTag. Extra files & features for it may be downloaded from here.

File Buddy is shareware. Newer versions (9, 10 & 11) are available for purchase from the author's web site (see purchase link above). File Buddy 8 only works with Mac OS X Panther and above, just like File Buddy 9, and hence is not mentioned. File Buddy 9 is a Universal Binary that works best under Panther and Tiger, but is also mostly functional under Leopard. File Buddy 10+ is for Snow Leopard and up only.

Architecture: 68k PPC PPC (Carbonized)

System 7.5 or better
4.3.9 is in FAT binary, which means it will work optimally for both PPC and 68k machines.

File Buddy 7.x.x requires at least Mac OS 10.1 or later (10.1.4 strongly recommended), or Mac OS 9 with CarbonLib 1.5 or later.

Thanks for adding that. File Buddy 7.6 is officially for Mac OS 9 - 10.2.8, but presumably it works okay in 10.4.x. The executable is dated March 2005, just before 10.4 was first released. It is a PowerPC app and probably not intended for OS's prior to OS 9.

Just added to the page versions 7.x.x as theses are no longer for sale. SkyTag provides downloads & license on their site for the last version 7, but others versions 9 & 10 can still be purchased.
