MacOS/OS X/ Mac OS X tip: AppCleaner

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/03

[WayBack] AppCleaner helped me get rid of a the gazillion number of versions that GoToMeeting had silently installed and their dependencies.

Gigabytes recovered.

Installing is easy: $ brew install caskroom/cask/appcleaner

AppCleaner is a small application which allows you to thoroughly uninstall unwanted apps.

Installing an application distributes many files throughout your System using space of your Hard Drive unnecessarily.
AppCleaner finds all these small files and safely deletes them.

Simply drop an application onto the AppCleaner window. It will find for the related files and you can delete them by clicking the delete button.

Cipher: a command-line tool to decrypt/encrypt files and directories (een recursively) on Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/03

A while ago, I had to mass encrypt a lot of directories and files on Windows for some directories in an existing directory structure.

This helped me to find out which ones were already done (it lists all encrypted files on all drives; the /n ensures the files or encryption keys are not altered):

cipher.exe /u /n /h

This encrypted recursively in one directory B:\Directory:

cipher /D /S:B:\Directory /A

It also has options to wipe data (/W), export keys into transferrable files (/X) and many more.

If you like the Windows Explorer more then to encrypt/decrypt (it is a tedious process): [WayBack] How do I encrypt/decrypt a file? | IT Pro.

Tools I use for audio/video downloading, media conversion and audio editing

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/03

A friend asked me what tools I use for downloading media, converting it to various formats (including audio extraction) and audio editing.

It is a surprisingly short list:

Most of it runs out of the box on Mac OS X/MacOS/OS X, as I’ve moved there form Windows for most of my day to day access to systems (there is a great set of Microsoft Remote Desktop in the app store: [Archive.isMicrosoft Remote Desktop 8.0 on the Mac App Store and [Archive.isMicrosoft Remote Desktop 10 on the Mac App Store; I like the first one better).

Audacity shortcuts

Shortcuts make Audacity life a lot easier. For keyboard shortcuts, Mac users use Command (⌘) instead of Ctrl.
