Introducing Techtool Pro 7! This is the most advanced version of the acclaimed Macintosh troubleshooting utility created in its 20-year history. Micromat has redeveloped Techtool Pro 7 to be fully 64-bit compatible, which allows the program to run more efficiently on the latest Macintosh computers. We also added a fantastic new RAM test that can find problems which no other utility can; and we also improved many of the testing, repair and maintenance routines.
New Memory Test
Many users and technicians overlook RAM problems when troubleshooting a system, mostly because it's so difficult to properly test. But with the wide availability of inexpensive memory modules, RAM problems are quite prevalent and can cause a variety of crashes, program errors and even data loss. We've seen many cases where a user will be chasing down a disk or extension problem when their issue was simply a faulty and inexpensively replaced memory module. We've taken almost 2 years to develop one of the most advanced memory tests in the industry that will help technicians and users alike diagnose and isolate this common, but often missed issue. As part of the RAM test, we've also added a fantastic SPD report that shows you an enormous amount of technical and other interesting information about your computer's memory.
New Models and Mavericks
Techtool Pro 7 works with the latest summer release of Macintosh computers. It also works perfectly on the developer release of the new version of Mac OS X, "Mavericks."
Besides the Memory test, we've improved many of the existing tests in Techtool Pro 7 to run more efficiently and to find and repair more problems than the previous version. We've also greatly improved our volume optimization feature.
We think you'll find Techtool Pro 7 to be an extremely valuable addition to your Macintosh toolbox. To learn more about Techtool Pro's other features, read on. To order a new copy or upgrade from your current version, click here.
Mac Drive Testing and Repair
Your Mac's hard drive, even if it is a Solid State Drive, is more likely to experience problems than any other component on your Mac. Because data changes so frequently, it can sometimes get scrambled. So, it's important to be able to test drives for problems and then repair them. Sadly, if something is physically wrong with the drive, it will need to be backed up and replaced, but the sooner this type of damage is detected, the fewer files - like cherished memories and important personal documents - will be lost. Most drive problems, however, result from data being in the wrong place, and can be repaired using Techtool Pro’s Volume Rebuild tool.
Emergency Startup Disk
If your startup disk stops working, and you need another startup disk, Techtool Pro’s eDrive steps in to help. The eDrive is what you’ll use to test, rebuild or defragment your main hard drive, but it is really helpful if your main startup disk goes missing. Instead of fumbling for your install DVD, or relying on the Recovery HD’s limited functionality, the eDrive gives you quick access to Techtool Pro along with several handy Apple utilities. You can even add other programs if you like.
Protect Important Data
The best way to prevent data loss is to be prepared. In addition to a backup, Techtool Pro includes Techtool Protection, which keeps an eye on your trash, allowing you to undelete that file you didn’t mean to delete. You can also back up your directory structures, the ‘map’ of where your data lives, so that if you need to recover data from a corrupt drive, Techtool Pro’s Data Recovery tool will know exactly where to look. Better yet, use Techtool Pro’s Volume Cloning tool to create an additional backup.
Mac OS X 10.6 or greater
512 Megabytes RAM or higher
†Note: Data Recovery may not recover data in all circumstances. For best results, enable Techtool Protection before data loss.
