Drive Genius 2 adds Leopard support

Drive Genius 2 released

Prosoft Engineering today released Drive Genius 2, an update to the hard drive maintenance utility that improves speed as well as overall performance. Drive Genius 2 is built upon the same foundation as the original version, and adds support for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. The software allows users to maintain, manage, and optimize hard drives via disk de-fragmentation, directory repair, and repartition support. Drive Genius 2 is priced at $100, while upgrades for current owners are available at $60 each.

"Traditionally, hard drive maintenance and management has been difficult, time-consuming and confusing. In many cases people skip these critical activities -- sometimes leading to disaster," Prosoft said. "Disk defrag, directory repair and repartition on-the-fly are only a few of the award-winning features of Drive Genius 2."

    Drive Genius

    I use this software and Disk Warrior. I have found that one fixes an issue the other does not and so forth. I like disk warrior because of the report. I like Drive Genius because it has some added features like shred and partitioning. Has anyone ever had Drive Genius 1.x or 2.x actually work on your IPOD Video? I have the 80g from 2 years ago. It has never been able to resolve or even attempt to resolve an IPOD disk issue. Yes, I used prosoft's IPOD utility as well. No luck.
