TechTool Pro 6 delivers hardware diagnostics, drive repair and daily maintenance for your Mac.

 

What's new in TechTool Pro 6! 

TechTool Pro 6 is downloadable and can now test many more Macs, including yours.

eDrive

The TechTool Pro 6 eDrive can boot all the new Macs. TechTool Pro 6 now provides the ability to create an eDrive on the active system volume without having to boot to the TechTool Pro DVD. Note: This feature only applies to PowerPC and Intel-based Macs using Mac OS X 10.5 or greater.

Volume Cloning

Volume Cloning provides the ability to create an exact clone or disk image clone of a selected volume. Both of these formats can be utilized for backing up and restoring data and, in some cases, systems and applications. Cloning volumes can be helpful if you are upgrading from a smaller size hard drive to a larger hard drive.  

Note: A Volume Clone of a bootable system provides a duplicate bootable volume. You can also boot to it and clone the volume back in case of an emergency. Also, a Disk Image Clone of a bootable volume, while not bootable, can be used to restore the system using Apple’s Disk Utility (located in /Applications/Utilities).

Network Tool

The new Local Network tool, also located in the Tools category, monitors and displays the configuration of Bonjour enabled devices and services running on your local network. This tool lists the IP addresses of all the devices as well as the port number of any services running on the selected device. This information is important for strengthening security on a specific machine, Bonjour supported device or your overall LAN, and is also helpful in tracking what devices have been in use in the past that are no longer available since the last time monitoring was performed.

 

Drive Repair and Data Recovery-so you can get back to work.
Mac disk repair, identify bad blocks and the files that reside on them, recover deleted files. Volume cloning for backup. Create an emergency startup partition without requiring a physical boot DVD, exclusively via eDrive.
 
Testing, Maintenance and Optimization-to keep your Mac running smoothly.
SMART test drives (internal ATA, SATA or SSD's) to identify impending problems before a potential crash, prevent file access conflicts, and monitor LAN activity, services and device availability. Optimize to help speed up your Mac.
 
Single-click Diagnostics so you can quickly identify impending problems.
Easy-to-use, one-click diagnostics scans critical CPU, memory, video hardware and more to identify aberrant behavior, providing ongoing protection and to help you mitigate issues and prevent costly repairs.

TechTool Pro is Designed for the Novice, Yet Powered for the Professional

Using TechTool Pro, you don't need to be an expert, everything is easily accessible from a single interface.

So while it's easy to use, TechTool Pro provides a comprehensive suite of tests that also delivers for the Mac professional.

The TechTool Pro dashboard makes everything easily accessible from a single location

TechTool Pro's hard drive tools are second to none. Create an emergency startup partition on the active system volume using TechTool Pro's eDrive, without ever having to boot from a DVD. Perform a SMART test on your internal ATA or SATA drives to detect changes in reliability, and repair corrupt or damaged HFS+ volumes, including those in newer solid-state devices (SSD's).

Use TechTool Pro's Volume Cloning to create exact duplicates of your volumes for trouble-free archiving. Plus, TechTool Pro helps you recover deleted files and lost data. If bad blocks are found when scanning your hard drive, you can identify and restore the corrupted files within them from previous backups you have archived.

To help keep your Mac running at peak performance, use TechTool Pro to optimize your volumes, or to repair disk permissions which may prevent problems accessing applications or files on your Mac.

TechTool Pro also helps with device management within your local area network (LAN). To monitor the configuration or security of your LAN, TechTool Pro displays Bonjour supported devices and active services, and helps track devices no longer available to the monitored network.

Count on TechTool Pro to provide total, continuous protection by monitoring your system, alerting you when aberrant behavior is detected, and helping you maintain top performance for your Mac every day.

 

Use TechTool Pro for Diagnostics, Maintenance and Repair on your Mac

Diagnostics and Repair

 

The best place to start is Check Computer, which performs a complete diagnostics check of the computer and the Mac formatted hard drives with one click of the mouse. This includes a SMART test of the computer's built-in hard drive to check for impending drive failure, a test of the computer's available RAM, analysis of the disk directories, and much more. If problems are found, advice is provided on how to proceed to repair the problem. Use Check Computer regularly as a part of a preventive maintenance program.

Volume Rebuild

 

In addition to testing the disk directories of hard drives, TechTool Pro can also rebuild damaged directories. This optimizes these critical data structures and, on a corrupted drive, will repair any damage to the directories. Use volume rebuild to keep your drives operating at their peak performance.

eDrive

Upgraded in version 6!

New in version 6, the eDrive can now create a bootable Mac OS X partition on the active system volume, which contains TechTool Pro's toolset and important files from your systems framework. This can be used in an emergency startup partition or to perform regular maintenance on your Mac without the need to reformat, or to boot from a DVD or secondary hard drive.

Cloning

New in version 6!

Volume Cloning creates exact duplicates of your volumes for trouble-free archiving to backup your data and applications. Cloning volumes can also be helpful if you are upgrading from a smaller size hard drive to a larger hard drive. You also have the option of creating a disc image of your volumes.

Optimization

 

TechTool Pro performs both file and volume optimization. File optimization consolidates fragmented files into a contiguous area of the hard drive. Volume optimization consolidates the free space on a hard drive. The resulting optimization simplifies the file storage layout and enhances the overall performance of your drive.

Data Recovery

 

TechTool Pro helps you recover your data from corrupted drives or volumes that don't mount on the desktop to save the data to another location. Use the Trash History feature to track the location of deleted files and increase the chance of their recovery in the case of an accidental deletion.

Network

New in version 6!

TechTool Pro will monitor the configuration of your local area network (LAN) by revealing the active services and ports on each selected machine or Bonjour supported device on your LAN. This information is important for strengthening security on a specific machine, Bonjour supported device or your overall LAN, and is also helpful in tracking what devices have been in use in the past that are no longer available since the last time monitoring was performed.

Protection Preferences

 

TechTool Pro includes the option to install the TechTool Protection system preference, where you configure automatic functions that operate in the background. In particular, you can configure Protection to track deleted files, monitor the free space on your hard drives, save backups of critical directory data to help with recovery in the event of drive corruption, and to monitor the SMART routines of your hard drives. If problems are found, Protection delivers onscreen and email alerts.

 

 

TechTool Pro 6 is feature-packed with benefits that all Mac users need for comprehensive diagnostics, repair, and maintenance. To ensure your Mac stays optimized and trouble-free, make sure you use TechTool Pro 6 regularly and keep your Mac running at peak performance every day.
