Since its release in 2004, Drive Genius has been the industry leader for Mac hard drive tools. Drive Genius 4 sports a new, enhanced and simplified interface that allows for running utilities on multiple drives simultaneously and includes new and improved features to Speed Up, Clean Up and Protect your Mac.

Get faster performance from your Mac while also protecting it with Drive Genius. The award-winning DrivePulse® feature alerts you to hard drive issues before they become major problems. Top features like Defrag and DriveSlim® will help keep your Mac running fast. BootWell™ lets you create a special bootable secondary drive to Defrag or Repair your main Mac hard drive. Mac users are always asking, “Why is my Mac running so slowly” and “How can I speed up my Mac!” The primary reason your Mac may be slow is usually because the hard drive is in need of being defragmented* and optimized. Your hard drive has accrued millions of important computer files. With so much important data being added and stored onto one hard drive, your computer’s performance has slowed over time. It is important that you run a Mac Defrag with Drive Genius if you want your Mac cleaned up and running at its peak performance everyday.

Drive Genius reorganizes large files, compacting them to be saved without fragmentation and consolidate the file into one contiguous file. The Mac Defrag will also improve the overall performance, boot time, application launch and access to your large files. When you defrag your hard drive, you are also reducing wear on the drive because the read/write heads do not need to travel as much across the drive when searching for a file after the defragmentation process. Drive Genius also compacts the larger files to allow them to be saved without fragmentation.

In order to defrag or repair your main hard drive, the OS requires that you boot from a secondary source. Drive Genius’ new BootWell™ tool makes it easy and convenient. BootWell creates a special bootable secondary drive, which can be used by Drive Genius to speed up or repair your main hard drive.

Drive Genius helps to protect your Mac from potential hard drive failures and errors that can cause you to lose your data. The award-winning DrivePulse® feature monitors the health of your hard drives to alert you to potential issues (errors, fragmentations, bad blocks) before they become a major problem.

DrivePulse® has been enhanced with the following features to do more extensive testing once the drive has been idle for 5 minutes.
