Recover Data & Deleted iPhoto Library

I received an e-mail awhile ago asking me how to recover an iPhoto Library.  I did some research and I came across this application that I’m sharing with guys because it’s interesting to have installed or download the .DMG file just in case, we never know when the support for PowerPC will end up and the file gone from anywhere.

* REMO RECOVER MAC – 3.0 ( 3.0.1) – (Data / Files) – PowerPC Friendly (Leopard 10.5). (Demo) – DOWNLOAD HERE . Safe and easy recovery data from Mac OS X.  The powerful built-in scanning algorithm helps in finding and recovering deleted files, files lost due to application errors, deleted or missing volumes, re-formatted volumes and re-partitioned Mac drives and also recover deleted files, which have been emptied from Trash.

* REMO – (Recover Deleted iPhoto Library) – Check instructions –  HERE .  Safe and fast recovery of photos from deleted iPhoto library.

Awesome application and I think most of us PowerPC user should have installed for our own benefit.

EagleFiler Organize e-Mails, Web Pages, Files, etc…

The question before I write this post is Why we do not save our documents?  I just lost my entire post because of sheer laziness…  Lesson learned and now it’s time to move on!

We have been posting here for awhile now and my PowerPC friends know that I always try to find free or low cost applications to share for many reasons.  Sometimes I come across some non-free applications that I think my readers would be interested in, and post them anyways.  These products often have features that the free ones do not…

EagleFiler 1.5.10 (Demo) – PowerPC 10.4 – Tiger / 10.5 – Leopard.  It’s an easy way to archive and manage all your documents, and various other pieces of information including e-mails, web pages, etc.  Organize everything into folders and add tags and notes to make it easier to search for later!

http://c-command.com/eaglefiler/  (Go Support for the version 1.5.10).  The new version is not compatible on PowerPC.

IceClean PowerPC

I follow a very nice Facebook Page called: Mac OS X Tiger PPC and they post useful material that I felt obliged to share with you here.

They basically show that we have printer drivers installed that we don’t use, which can be found in Hard Drive/Library/Printers.  Carefully remove the folders for printers that you don’t use and you will likely save over 1GB of hard drive space!

A second tip to maximize your system is an application called IceClean, which is a powerful system maintenance and optimization tool using UNIX built-in System.

AvidemuX – Movie Editor (Free)

I wish I had more time to answer all the e-mails I get from my readers and to be able to do some research to help everybody find applications.  Unfortunately during the summer it’s difficult to find the time to spend hours in front of my computer.  Slowly as summer progresses into fall, you’ll see more from MacPowerPC!

A long time ago, a few people asked me about some applications to edit movies.  Obviously, my first answer is iMovie, I don’t do movie editing and if so it’s very basic!  In my travels, I’ve  come across a great program called Avidemux.

* Avidemux (2.5.3) – Free – PowerPC 10.2 (Jaguar here guys) or later.  It’s free open source and multi-platform software.  The interface might not be the best thing you have seen but the application is very straightforward. It supports video formats that iMovie does not and is very powerful for a simple cutting, filtering, and encoding. I might have to mention again that its FREE and this is what MacPowerPC is all about.
