Copy Original To… (de-alias).plist
Download this file

I just wrote my first OnMyCommand droplet: “Copy Original To… (de-alias)”. Ever annoyed by the half-working aliases that the OS X Finder makes? Now you can just right-click any alias and copy the original file it points to to any folder! It’s nice because cp -R doesn’t follow aliases like it does symlinks.

You can download OnMyCommand here. It’s an amazing Finder plugin that lets you write your own scripts to run via contextual menu when clicking on files, etc. Finally someone tried to improve that poor excuse for a file manager. I’ve seen DOS apps that were better.
