I cam across a system checker from Titanium Software and it is called OnyX is this legit software?
In short: yes.
In Shorter: Ye'
In longer: As opposed to what, illegitimate apps? Viruses? Spyware? On a Mac? Yeah, right.
Is it worthwhile to have?
Don't you have to pay for it? Deeper does much what OnyX does, but is free. If OnyX is free, too, have at thee.
I think so. I use it all the time. It allows you to do stuff you probably didn't know about. And it helps clean out your system.
As a new Mac user, I am uncertain on many things, and that is why I ask people that know a lot more than me.
It is free. Good to have. Run it once in a while.
Onyx is a life saver. It makes my Mac new once a month.
Deeper IS Onyx... I really see no difference in the UI, function, or anything. OnyX is fantastic and free.
I downloaded and installed OnyX for OS10-5 but what is
Maintenance 1.2.4 for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and
Deeper 1.1.2 for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)? They all look the same and do the same thing I think.
I have yet to use it. I purchased my mac in june 2008, i'm not shure if I should at this point.
I use onyx once a month, good to flush out the system with once and a while. It's probably best to just stick with onyx on it's own though.
I wonder if there is a way to know if you need it! I guess once a month would be fine, but what options should I select? When I installed OnyX it put the application in the Applications folder what do I do with the folder on the bottom right of screen capture, it has the un-install and other things?
Onyx, Deeper and Maintenance all come from the same developer. The latter two are just parts of Onyx separated for people who don't want all of Onyx's features.
Now what you have in the bottom right corner is a mounted disk image that appears when you open a DMG. You can just eject it and keep the DMG if you want to keep the uninstaller.
I think I might have screwed up, as I rebooted the iMac and the disk image is no longer on the screen. Is there a way to retrieve it? Or just forget about it?
It's legit. I use it on my MacBook whenever I feel it getting a little sluggish (avg. 3-4 mos.).
Disk images always go away when you restart or log out. You just open up the DMG again and it will mount the Disk image.
It works but be carefull .. I had to re install adobe aps after I ran it
OK I deleted the DMG as I thought it is no longer needed. Not a big deal I guess.
Correct. Just redownload it if you want to uninstall. (Not sure why you would want to anyway).
I don't plan to remove it, but I still need to know what is safe to have cleaned, other than cache files.
Why, what happened?
