VolumeWorks 1.5 ships

SubRosaSoft today released VolumeWorks 1.5, an update to its drive utility for managing and repairing volumes. According to the company, it is the first application for Mac OS X to support dynamic resizing. The latest version of the software offers better performance, Intel Macs support, and a dual- bootable CD which supports PPC- and Intel-based Macs. It supports the latest partition format shipped with the new Intel-based Macs (GPT) and can convert the drive's partition map between PDISK format for use with older PowerPC-based systems and GUID format for newer Intel-based Mac systems. The software includes features for resizing partitions on-the-fly and powerful functions for volume testing and repair. It supports SATA-, ATA-, FireWire- and USB-based drives and can hide partitions, add custom icons, move partitions, and reconstruct partition maps from a newly device copied drive using hardware such as Diskology's Disk Jockey. It is available for $50 (or $60 on CD) and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
