  • Great utility to have!

    I cannot believe I am the first to review this here! I have 20+ years in IT and know a valuable program when I see it. You might I cannot believe I am the first to review this here! I have 20+ years in IT and know a valuable program when I see it. You might be misled into thinking nothing will ever go wrong, but drives do get corrupt and fragmentation does happen with drives slowing down. Drive Genius has many valuable programs any one in itself worth the price. The prior version saved me and this version 3 is wonderful. My drives are monitored automatically once I turn on DrivePluse and the defrag works wonders. Personally I could not believe the difference in performance. Changing partitions is cool too. The key here I want to stress is preventive maintenance and integrity checking. The program interface is beautifully done visually and is reassuring. The company is very nice , something that is important to me.

Incredibly user-friendly. It offers the very best tune-up I have ever seen for the Mac platform. [now 20+ years with the Mac] The Defrag, DriveSlim and Repartition [on the fly] features alone are well worth the cost! NO wonder at all that Apple ProCare uses it for a yearly makeover!

When I had a technical question, their technical support team promptly responded to my email. They even called me to be sure I understood how to create a disk image bootable disk.
    I feel more confident using a product which is backed by a caring and responsive technical support team.

    I love Drive Genius. Anything that Disk Utility (and command-line Diskutil) cannot do, Drive Genius does. And it's quick too. It what Disk Utility can do, Drive Genius does so much quicker.

    Plus, I love how it monitors your drives for their SMART status and whatnot. It automatically alerts you of problems and attempts to fix them. It gives so much peace of mind, even with a backup!

    I cannot recommend this software enough.

    Worked great until one OS update from Apple; then most of the useful functions were disabled.
