Physical Check
Checks a drive for hardware related problems that may result from a damaged drive, a bad cable, or a bad connection.
Consistency Check
Checks for possible file and folder corruption on formatted drives. Detecting and repairing any errors can help prevent data loss.
Can repair most kinds of logical file and folder errors on a drive to prevent future critical problems and potential data loss.
In circumstances where a file name is lost, the data is still there, but not accessible, Rebuild may be able to list lost file names to the file data again.
Fix Permissions
Permission inconsistencies can result from bad application installers and lead to applications failing to open or randomly crashing.
Note: The Drive Genius 4.x.x boot DVD will boot February 2011 and earlier Macs only. If your Mac was purchased after February 2011 you will need to create a separate DG4 Startup Disk.
