Great product you guys have. I have a simple question. Not sure about older version of Path Finder as I've only used Path Finder 6, but I have a launch daemon[1] that calls a command line privileged helper tool[2]. Just wondering what does that does.

    It allows Path Finder to perform actions on folders which require privileged authentication (eg. usr/local/bin).
