Use TechTool Pro to keep your Macintosh running smoothly. TechTool Pro is a full-featured utility program containing options for testing and repair, maintenance (including disk defragmentation), and data recovery. All it takes is one click of the mouse to perform a comprehensive suite of tests on your computer's hardware and attached drives. TechTool Pro does it all. There is no need to purchase additional software to keep your computer performing at its best.
You don't need to be an expert technician to run TechTool Pro. The interface allows you to easily perform a comprehensive suite of tests unattended, so even novices can run the program with just one click of the mouse. At the conclusion of testing a detailed report is generated. This report summarizes what was done, alerts you of any problems that were found, and instructs you how to proceed in that case.
An innovative feature unique to TechTool Pro is the eDrive. The program lets you create an emergency startup partition that includes TechTool Pro on one of your hard drives. It does this without the need to reinitialize your hard drive. Once you have an eDrive (which can be easily updated), you no longer need to use the program DVD for testing or maintenance.A Technical Support forum for TechTool Pro and other Micromat products is located at: http://www.micromat.com/index.php?option=com_simpleboard&Itemid=42
