Your Mac’s hard drive is where much of your digital life is stored. The award-winning Drive Genius 4 is designed to keep it running smoothly and repair any mishaps. You can currently get it at 9to5Toys Specials for $50.

With so many files to keep in order, it isn’t surprising that OS X misplaces stuff once in a while. Drive Genius lets you repair those file errors and weed out duplicates to improve performance, all while looking out for any future hiccups. This includes assessing hardware health and checking for corrupted files, and it alerts you to anything it finds.

You can also use the app to create a bootable secondary hard drive for emergency use, and customize the appearance of drives and folders for easier recognition. Drive Genius offers the features of apps twice its price (I’m looking at you, DiskWarrior), and it is standard issue for Apple Geniuses.

  • Optimize and speed up your Mac for maximum performance
  • Alerts you to problems before they escalate into major issues
  • Find large files and duplicates; delete ones you don’t need
  • Set custom icons to make drive identification easier
