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."
