"You cant delete it by normal way"
Version: Drive Genius 3.2.3
I just try to defragment my drive, but this app cant do this on Maverick version.
Most ugly thing - you cant delete it without tricks and magic.
When I set up any software, I think I can delete it any time I want. Not with this software. I spend 2 hours to find the way how to delete it. 2 hours!!!
If you not advanced user with strong console skills don't even try to install this shi... soft.
Just look for official answer how you will do this:
To manually uninstall Drive Genius 3 delete the following files and folders at the end of the paths listed below. Double click on your " Mac HD " drive to start the path.
/Library/Application Support/DriveGenius (folder)
/Applications/Drive Genius 3.app (icon)
/Users/Library/Application Support/DriveGenius (folder)
If you are running OS X Lion or Mountain Lion, the last three files/folders are located in the Users Library Folder which is hidden in Lion, You can temporarily access this folder by opening a Finder Window and pressing Command+Shift+G. This will bring up "Go to the folder", enter in "~/Library" and click go.
But! Its not work! Because they run on root level and block any try to delete this files.
I use this method:
Delete from startup program list all drivegenius services and daemons.
And then you can delete this app.
Shame on you developers of Drive Genius....
"Saved a HDD that no other could repair or recognize."
Version: Drive Genius 3.2.3
Effective at initializing a HDD no other app I tried could repair or recognize. I even took this machine to the Genius Bar at the Apple Store. Nothing they had could repair the disk. They recommended buying a new HD.
Price, no others - yet!
This is a great app if you have serious problems with a drive.
