Hi Tim,

thanks for the report - someone else noticed this too.

I'm not sure offhand why this happens, but I have logged it and will investigate in the next upgrade round.

in the meantime - if you're enjoying the app, please do leave a review on the App Store. There are precious few at the moment!

thanks.

So, it's been about a month and a half, any updates on this?

nothing I'm afraid. It is still in the bug list, but I haven't done any work on RCB since your report.
I'm afraid it is one of my small apps, so it doesn't get very regular work.

Any chance I could offer some incentive to work on it? :-)

It's not just external. Any drive that is not the main boot drive does not show RCB options.

Can you open source the app so that someone else can fix the issues?

I won't be doing that I'm afraid. I hope to make some money from this eventually!

How do I completely uninstall this software?

1) disable the finder extension
2) delete it from the apps folder

looks like this is a fairly easy fix. I have it working now (though it takes up to a minute to spot new drives).

this will work when/if Apple approve an update. They have been incredibly difficult about this app in the past, so no promises on how long that might take.

Has Apple approved the update? It's been over a year and I seem to have the same issue with RCB version 1.3.
I enabled spotlight (which I had turned off for external drives) in case it had something to do with it. No luck.

Hi,

They approved the update a couple of days after my last post. I'm afraid I can't see why it isn't working.

I'll log a bug and investigate.

thanks for the report.

Is this bug still active? Also having trouble using RCB on external and network drives.
