Default Folder X 4.6.6 arrives with important compatibility fixes!

Friday, June 27th, 2014

Version 4.6.6 of Default Folder X is now available on the Default Folder X release page. It’s compatible with the developer release of Yosemite, and addresses a number of issues as well. Among them, it corrects problems with unintentionally triggering the discrete graphics card on Macs that have one, applications saving files with the wrong name, and an annoying glitch that could cause OS X to ask for your admin password while you were opening or saving a file. It also enables rebound in column view as well as icon and list view and provides some user interface improvements.

If you’ve purchased a license for Default Folder X 4 already, this update is free. There are more details and a download link on the Default Folder X release page.

Using Default Folder X to remount network drives

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

You learn something new every day!

Default Folder X was featured on the Mac Geek Gab podcast again this week, but not for the usual reason of being a fast way to navigate all of your files and folders. A user wrote in to say that he uses Default Folder X to solve a common problem with accessing disks on a network. OS X will sometimes drop a network-connected drive off the desktop, making it inaccessible until you explicitly contact the server again. Default Folder X can actually help with this by automatically reconnecting to the server when you use an Open or Save As dialog. You simply have to set a folder on the server as a Favorite folder or the default folder for the application you’re using. When you access that Favorite or default folder using Default Folder X, it will automatically find the server and reconnect to it if it’s available.

Thanks for that reminder Carsten!
