OpenBase Database – What is it & Uninstall….

It’s kind of funny when you find random application installed on your drive, OpenBase is a database management and storage tool – several Mac application use this. In my case the easiest way to figure out what it was doing was to run the OpenBaseManager application in /Applications/Openbase.

My version reported only 1 database ‘Daylight’ which is part of the Marketcircle product Daylight Express, I have had this removed for quite some time, but OpenBase does not seem to offer an uninstaller – so a bit of shell magic is required.

Open the Terminal and enter:

sudo /Library/OpenBase/bin/RemoveOpenBaseScript

Magic, it will be uninstalled – just be sure to check nothing is using it first or you may have some problems on your hands ;)
