Protect Features (8)

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

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

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.

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 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.

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

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

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.


Clean Up Features (8)

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

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

Information
View all of your Mac's system information, quick and easy!


Speed Up (2)

Defragment*
Search through files and downloads for known malware. The malware database is updated multiple times a day.

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

*Following features are not available to macOS 10.13+ users: The Defragment, Repartition, and Rebuild utilities are not supported on APFS and a Separate Boot Drive is needed to perform Physical Check and Speed Test.
