Ask Max: Can I view OS 9 file Comments in OS X?

Asked on 04/30/2007:

I recently upgraded from OS 9.2 to OS 10.4.6 on a dual-boot G4 DP 867 MDD system.

Get Info comments are viewable when booted under OS 9 but not under OS 10.4.6.

What's this all about? Is there a way to make the comments viewable while running under OS X?


OS 9 Comments are not viewable in OS X 10.4. Apple has implemented "Spotlight Comments" in OS X 10.4 and they are stored in different ways. There are free and Shareware utilities that will move OS 9 Comments to OS X. Comment Synch is one that I have heard good things about.
