Drive Genius Reviews

about Drive Genius · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I've used Drive Genius ever since obtaining a copy through Other World Computing (machales.com), where they have bundled it with certain purchases for years. I've paid (~$40 each) for two or three major version upgrades, as Drive Genius includes Drive Pulse, an ongoing monitoring utility which has notified me a couple of times before a drive failed. Drive Genius is a full bundle of disk utilities (repair, verify, repartition, measure access speed), and in version 5 added malware protection.
However, version 6 has moved to an $80/year/computer model, pricing them out of the home market. I'm certainly not willing to pay separately for each computer, and annually to boot!
Version 5 is excellent (6 stars), and I'm dropping a star because v6 is unaffordable.
