Kilometre, also known as Kilometre Browser, is a file manager for Mac OS X. It provides some features that are hidden or not supported by the Finder.
In particular, it can:
- Show and rename invisible files.
- Change the file visibility, lock and stationery attributes, type and creator, Unix permissions, owner and group.
- Show the file creation date, modification date and backup date.
- Give you the option to merge or fully replace a pre-existing folder when copying a folder with the same name.
Download the current version: KILOMETRE 1.3.1 (compatible with both Intel and Power PC microprocessors running Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher).
If you are using an older Mac OS X version, or if you have other problems with the current release, you may also try one of our older releases.

Known Problems and Limitations
Some Kilometre features require the Finder to be running:
- Make alias file.
- Show file in Finder.
- Edit Spotlight comments.
- Import classic comments / export MacOS X comments.
- Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion: System functions to access the desktop database seem not to work in Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion. Kilometre needs the desktop database to retrieve and modify classic comments. Because it's very improbable that Apple will repair these obsolete functions, restoring support for classic comments would require trying some alternative method. As demand for this feature is probably very low, we have no current plans to work on this.
