"Good, useful tool"

March 26, 2011  |  By gbdoc

 |  Version: TechTool Pro 6.0

Pros

Aside from 1 or 2 bumps over the years, it's always worked fine and gets better and better. Customer service is responsive. The eDrive is a fantastic idea which no other app has instituted. And now TTP makes clones, too. Transparent, user-friendly.

Cons

None to speak of.

Summary

To begin with, not that much goes wrong with Macs. But when it does, something like TTP and DiskWarrior - both of them! - have been lifesavers for me over the years, along with bootable clones. Is it worth the $$ (which is not a fortune)? How much is your data worth to you? I don't understand the gripes, and, for me at least, it's always worked reliably. I wouldn't be without it.

What's new in version 6.0
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 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).

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.
