    Hi,

    I usually do not have a well feeling using extra utilities that do something to your disk, but I read some posts about "SpeedTool Utilities" by Intech (which is a rebrand of Disk Tool Pro) and was wondering, what your experiences are?

    (Reminds me a bit of Tech Tool Pro in the early days of OS 9...)

    I often hear of such cleaning and repair applications that do more harm than good to the System/HDD.

    Thanks!

    When I got my first 320GB hard drive it was for my old TiBook so I had to get Speed Tools to partition the drive so that I had access past the 128GB level.

    I can vouch for it. I never used it beyond doing what I just mentioned though. But for that it was just fine.

    I remember Intech HD SpeedTools fondly. It was a nice piece of software.

    Why do people keep getting this wrong? :confused:

    Intech's SpeedTools Pro is the ORIGINAL product that has existed for years.

    Macware's DiskTools Pro is merely a rebranded version of that.

    Hm, read that and did not double check, which one was first. Maybe People confuse it with the older TechTool... :confused:
