Macs are complex machines, but in some ways they’re a bit like people. Everything they can do relies on a healthy, uncluttered hard drive; the “brains” of the operation. But you can’t take your Macbook to a psychologist (unless that’s your thing), so instead you’ll want a utility app like Drive Genius.
Drive Genius 5 is a suite of 19 different diagnostic and repair tools for your Mac’s drive. It scans and addresses a whole range of potential issues, even while idling. So if there’s a potential problem, you’ll get a warning before it becomes a real one. Easily create secondary boot drives, optimize performance, remove duplicate files and lots more. Additionally, you can personalize icons to make drive ID and organization easier. This is a solid app that’s been the Genius Bar’s defrag tool of choice for more than 7 years.
