Freeze files in time without Locking them.
FileFreeze allows users to freeze a file instead of locking it. Applications are allowed to write over the file, but FileFreeze will put the archived version back into place when it sees a change. This can be a more friendly way to “Lock” files.
The app was initially built to lock Xojo UI State files. I prefer my Xojo workspaces to open in the same state every time, not the last state it was in. At first I tried locking the file, but Xojo crashes if you use the Finder Lock feature. Freezing a file instead of locking it is a great way to help any application that’s struggling with locked files.
Previously vaulted as a personal “for myself” tool, FileFreeze is now public and totally free. I just wanted to build something cool and Mac-like. Check out that unified toolbar mmm…
I hope someone out there finds it useful. Maybe someone here feels the same about the IDE workspaces, who knows.
Best wishes, happy Friday, and happy coding!
