Meet the New SpeedTools — It's Everything You Need.
Defragment Files
Defragment Files: Defragmenting your files can dramatically improve file access performance and will make files more recoverable should your hard disk crash or directory damaged occur. And, defragmenting with SpeedTools is safe and fast!
Scan / Repair Bad Sectors
Scan / Repair Bad Sectors: Scan for Bad Sectors in files or your entire volume. If a bad sector is found, options will be provided to repair the sector. Additionally, SpeedTools can tell you which file the the sector has damaged.
Test Data Transfer Integrity
Test Data Transfer Integrity: This powerful test will verify your hard disk's ability to reliably read and write precise data patterns repeatedly. This test is unbeatable at detecting even the smallest issue with cables, connections and other hardware components.
QuickBench: A simple benchmark utility that will allow you to see the performance level your drive is able to to attain. Great for comparing drive mechanisms and different interfaces.
Backup and Restore
Backup and Restore: We all love Apple's Time Machine. Unfortunately, if you're using it as your sole method of backup, you're not fully protected. SpeedTools provides full volume backups to disk images and to other disks for a completely bootable level of backup protection.
S.M.A.R.T. Diagnostics
S.M.A.R.T. Diagnostics: Examine your hard disk's built-in health and reliability sensors. These sensors can often predict oncoming failure before failures actually occur. And, with the integrated SMART Alert™ system you can have SpeedTools automatically monitor all of your disks and warn you of problems via an alert message, status menu or email. Compatible with all popular ATA, SATA and eSATA hard disk devices.
Verify and Repair Volume
Verify and Repair Volume: Do you have a disk or volume that won't mount, have applications or files that can't be opened, or have other unexplainable problems? Often, these types of filesystem related issues can be easily repaired by SpeedTools.
Analyze Disk Usage
Analyze Disk Usage: Stop wondering where all your disk space is going. SpeedTools will show you how much of your disk space is used by music, photos and other files. SpeedTools can also find those large downloaded files that you forgot to throw away.
Preference File Inspector
Preference File Inspector: Preference files (.plist files) are used to store important settings. If damaged, they can prevent your System and applications from running properly or running at all. SpeedTools will scan entire disks or a specified folder to locate broken Preference files and provide options to repair or remove them.
Device / Volume Information
Device / Volume Information: View and export detailed information about your connected devices and volumes. See read/write operation counts and time statistics, firmware revision, device serial numbers and many other unique features and attributes.
Volume Options and Settings
Volume Options and Settings: SpeedTools provides the ability to monitor free space levels on any writable, local disk that you choose. Additionally, each disk may have its own individual low disk space setting. When a disk drops below your setting, SpeedTools will alert you with a message. SpeedTools also allows you to hide and reveal mounted disks and volumes — a great feature to keep kids away from your important data.
Activity Logs
Activity Logs: With the SpeedTools itemized activity logs, you won't have to remember the last time you defragmented or backed up your hard disk. SpeedTools will show you and provide you with a complete summary of each task outcome, including each scheduled task.

All hard disks fail eventually. The only real question is when. SpeedTools Utilities will vigilantly monitor your internal drives and alert you at the first sign of trouble, both locally and remotely. Often, providing valuable extra time to backup your data before your drive fails. SpeedTools can also warn you when disk space becomes low with adjustable settings for each disk.
