Compressor Repair Utility! A godsend?

I've tried every Compressor reset/repair instruction under the sun in various combinations to get my renders to work in Compressor. It's often that my fixes won't work or won't work long, other times, a simple restart gets things back on track. Sometimes, it takes a week or more to get things working again - incredible job on Apple's part (sarcasm).

Anyhow, I *just* stumbled across this free "Compressor Repair" utility and had to share - I've downloaded it, and got Compressor working on my own just moments before so I've not had a chance to use it yet.

Download Compressor Repair 1.0.0 - Repair Compressor and Qmaster problems when submitting batches

On the site, it says: Here are some key features of "Compressor Repair":

Checks for missing Qmaster files.
Checks for incorrect permissions and fixes them.
Resets Qmaster.
Manually launches qmasterd.
Trashes Compressor preferences (optional).

If you do use it, let everyone know how it worked for you - good luck!

Back so soon...

Only been two days and Compressor/QMaster failed (was only a matter of time.. it's usually a fail to work ratio of 5:1 for me) and I got to use the utility. It worked, more or less. It saved me time, and removed the cache and histories for me with ease rather than me doing the var/spool dance.

So it gets my thumbs up!
