System maintenance

Utilities that help with maintaining system. Mostly Windows, but other OSes too.

  • Mounty for NTFS icon

    Mounty for NTFS

    Free Mac OS X Website

    A tiny tool to re-mount write-protected NTFS volumes under Mac OS X 10.9+ in read-write mode.
    No additional driver will be installed. It simply makes use of the build-in mechanisms already provided by Mac OSX Mavericks.


  • Hashtab icon


    Free Personal Mac OS X Windows Windows Explorer Finder Website

    [Hashtab is free for personal use for Windows, NOT for Mac: it can be bought for $1.99 from the Mac App Store.]

    HashTab provides OS extensions to calculate file hashes. HashTab supports many hash algorithms such as MD5, SHA1, SHA2, RipeMD, HAVAL and Whirlpool. Hashtab is supported as a Windows shell extension and a Mac Finder plugin. HashTab provides an easy way to verify file integrity and authenticity.

    Once you have installed HashTab, just right click on any file. On Windows, select properties and you will see a new "File Hashes" tab. On Mac select "File Hashes" (on 10.5 the "File Hashes" menu item will be found under the "More" submenu). This is will start HashTab providing more or less the same view that you see on Windows. This File Hashes window displays all the hashes for the file. You can customize which hashes are calculated and displayed. You can hash other files for comparison. You can also paste in hash text so you dont go cross-eyed trying to compare MD5 hashes.


  • WizTree icon


    Free Windows Website

    WizTree scans your entire hard drive and shows you which files and folders are using the most disk space. It does this VERY QUICKLY. In fact, we believe WizTree to be the fastest application of this type currently available! Use the information WizTree provides to quickly locate and remove "space hogs" from your hard drive.


    • Finds the files and folders using the most space on your hard drive
    • Work VERY Fast! We think it's the fastest application of this type in the world!
    • Finds the top 1000 largest files on your hard drive
    • Sort the contents of your entire hard drive by folder size and optionally delete files and folders

    How does it work?
    WizTree reads the hard drive's Master File Table (MFT) directly from the disk. The MFT is a special hidden file used by the NTFS file system to keep track of all files and folders on a hard drive. It's very fast because scanning for files this way completely bypasses the operating system (Windows).

    Why are some of my drives not selectable?
    WizTree obtains information by directly scanning the the MFT file, so it can only work with local (directly attached) drives formatted with the NTFS file system. It won't work with network drives, substituted drives or non NTFS formatted drives. We may add support for other drive types in the future if there's enough demand.

    The description or its website don't look too convincing but it's not just the best for utilizing multiple bootable things, it has no direct analogs.
