Features and Highlights
Drive Genius’ NEW BootWell™ technology creates a special secondary startup drive that can be used to maintain or repair your main startup drive.
Optimize your drive for maximum performance. Defragment will re-organize each file into a contiguous area of your drive allowing your computer to perform less work while retrieving your files.
Add, delete, hide, expand or shrink OS X partitions so you can organize your Mac hard drive more efficiently. Repartition enables you to manage (shrink, expand, shift, delete, hide, reveal or customize) partitions (volumes) on your hard drives. Unlike traditional methods of backing up, erasing and repartitioning the drive, Drive Genius for macOS allows you to expand or shrink partitions without erasing them.
Automatically determines how your drive is configured, duplicates that configuration to the new drive and then performs the most efficient data copy possible.
Checks a drive for hardware related problems that may result from a damaged drive, a bad cable, or a bad connection.
Locates duplicate files and replaces those duplicates with an alias. Find Duplicates is powered by the award-winning technology of DriveSlim®./
Find Large Files
Powered by DriveSlim® – Large File Search finds very large files that are taking up space on your hard drive. This could be large video file that came preloaded on your Mac or some funny email attachment someone sent you. It is likely that you are not even aware of these files and Large File Search helps you keep tabs on what files are on your hard drive, allowing you to mark and delete the ones you no longer need.
Set a custom icon for a drive or folder. Personalize and make drive identification easier with fun, useful and cool icons.
The Initialize utility prepares new drives, or erases old drives, for use with OS X. Drives can optionally be initialized for use with Windows/Camera cards or for use with legacy PowerPC macs.
Measures the optimal raw performance of your drive since it was last connected to your computer.
Instant Drive Pulse
Runs the most common DrivePulse® tests and provides a pass/fail status for the drive.
Active Files alerts you to files that are in use that may prevent you from shutting down your Mac or ejecting a drive. No more guesswork.
Checks for possible file and folder corruption on formatted drives. Detecting and repairing any errors can help prevent data loss.
Can repair most kinds of logical file and folder errors on a drive to prevent future critical problems and potential data loss.
In circumstances where a file name is lost, the data is still there, but not accessible, Rebuild may be able to list lost file names to the file data again.
Permission inconsistencies can result from bad application installers and lead to applications failing to open or randomly crashing.
Overwrites all data using one of five secure patterns designed to make data recovery near impossible, it then creates a newly formatted drive or deletes files and folders.
Note: Limited functionality in demo version. Requires 64-bit processor.
