Total rubbish and a misleading name. This rubbish doesn't fix squat. It removes some caches files I can already do the same with dozens of free tools. And yes I did try this out on a friends computer when I stopped laughing how he claimed this was great. I showed him how much money he lost to this scam compared to the free tools like Onyx. LOL

I hope this loser peddling this software is sued by Symantec for using their software's name.

I checked--"Norton Disk Doctor" is still a registered trademark:

It was renewed in 2009. I'm not holding my breath waiting for Symantec to take legal action. 8D

don't listen to the other,you my friend are 100% correct!! all these tools that do the same things as onyx and cocktail are just that,scams, and many others fall for them and actually pay for them when most utilities are free and better. i love it when fools on macupdate click the frown symbol on me bc i speak the truth and correct them on all their mistakes. lmao

It's like anything else. Why do some people blow their money on Office when there are lots of free alternatives? It's up to the consumer to research and decide what's best for them. I use Onyx and wouldn't pay for a program like Cocktail or Disk Doctor but I also think it's fair to at least try and make a buck. Some would rather just click "buy" and be done with it.

Has the Symantec copyright on the name Disk Doctor expired? Or do these folks just not care?

Symantec hasn't used the name Disk Doctor in at least a decade. But that doesn't mean they don't own a copyright on it. Of course, if they've let the copyright lapse then the name is fair game. Still, this app is a pale imitation of what Norton Disk Doctor could do and hardly qualifies as any kind of doctor. It's probably true, though, that most of the people currently using Mac computers came to the platform after Symantec stopped supporting Norton Utilities on the Mac and have no memory of that venerable product. Which is what the developers are no doubt counting on. If this app were more robust I might give it a pass, but all it apparently does is invoke the Cron scripts built into OS X, which is to say, it does nothing that any of a host of other apps don't already do, some of which, like Maintenance, are freeware, and all of which have less pretentious names.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
