Drive Genius Lite

Drive Genius Lite is a great introduction to the value of Drive Genius. The included DrivePulse monitoring system will schedule tests for things like corrupted preference files, low free space, and changes to system login items. It will also utilize several of the features from the Protect, Clean Up, and Speed Up utilities to automatically check for malware, consistency problems, hardware issues, and more.

Protect Features

Keep your computer and storage devices safe from potential threats and failure. Scan a drive, folder, or file for malware. Verify the file and folder structures of your macOS drives, and repair any errors caused by corruption. Check drives for hardware issues so that they can be replaced before failure.

Malware Scan

Malware Scan

The Malware Scan searches through files and downloads for known malware. The malware database is updated multiple times a day. In addition to running scans manually, DrivePulse will automatically scan downloaded files. Automatic download scans are only performed for certain well-known locations. Downloads saved outside of these locations will not be scanned automatically.

BootWell™

BootWell™

BootWell creates a special secondary startup drive that can be used to maintain your startup drive.

A BootWell Drive is required to use the following tools on your startup drive: Defragment, Repair, Rebuild, Advanced Physical Check, and Whole-Drive Secure Erase

The first initial boot into a BootWell created on macOS 10.11+ may take up to 30 minutes.

Physical Check

Physical Check

Checks a drive for hardware related problems that may result from a damaged drive, a bad cable, or a bad connection.

Instant DrivePulse

Instant DrivePulse

Runs the most common DrivePulse® tests and provides a pass/fail status for the drive.

Active Files

Active Files

Active Files alerts you to files that are in use that may prevent you from shutting down your Mac or ejecting a drive. No more guesswork.

Consistency Check

Consistency Check

Checks for possible file and folder corruption on formatted drives. Detecting and repairing any errors can help prevent data loss.

Repair

Repair

Can repair most kinds of logical file and folder errors on a drive to prevent future critical problems and potential data loss.

Rebuild

Rebuild

In circumstances where a file name is lost, the data is still there, but not accessible, Rebuild may be able to list lost file names to the file data again.

Clean Up Features

Find large and duplicate files that can be removed to free up space on your storage devices. Partition a drive to manage drive space and organize the way your data is stored. Initialize new drives for use with macOS, or erase old ones. Securely delete data so it cannot be retrieved with recovery software.

Repartition

Repartition

Add, delete, hide, expand or shrink OS X partitions so you can organize your Mac hard drive more efficiently.

Repartition enables you to manage (shrink, expand, shift, delete, hide, reveal or customize) partitions (volumes) on your hard drives. Unlike traditional methods of backing up, erasing and repartitioning the drive, Drive Genius allows you to expand or shrink partitions without erasing them.

Find Duplicates

Find Duplicates

Locates duplicate files and replaces those duplicates with an alias. Find Duplicates is powered by the award-winning technology of DriveSlim®.

Find Large Files

Find Large Files

Powered by DriveSlim® – Large File Search finds very large files that are taking up space on your hard drive. This could be large video file that came preloaded on your Mac or some funny email attachment someone sent you. It is likely that you are not even aware of these files and Large File Search helps you keep tabs on what files are on your hard drive, allowing you to mark and delete the ones you no longer need.

Clone

Clone

Automatically determines how your drive is configured, duplicates that configuration to the new drive and then performs the most efficient data copy possible.

Secure Erase

Secure Erase

Overwrites all data using one of five secure patterns designed to make data recovery near impossible, it then creates a newly formatted drive or deletes files and folders.

Initialize

Initialize

The Initialize utility prepares new drives, or erases old drives, for use with macOS.

Drives can optionally be initialized for use with Windows / Camera cards or for use with legacy PowerPC Macs.

IconGenius™

IconGenius™

Set a custom icon for a drive or folder. Personalize and make drive identification easier with fun, useful and cool icons.

Keep your rotational hard drives operating at maximum performance with the ability to reorganize fragmented data and increase file access speeds. Test the raw speed of your drives to identify where upgrades can be made to your system for increased efficiency.

Defragment

Defragment

Optimize your drive for maximum performance. Defragment will re-organize each file into a contiguous area of your drive allowing your computer to perform less work while retrieving your files.

Speed

Speed

Measures the optimal raw performance of your drive since it was last connected to your computer.
