TechTool Pro for Mac

What is TechTool Pro for Mac

TechTool Pro has long been one of the foremost utilities for keeping your Mac running smoothly and efficiently. With the release of this version, it has become more proficient than ever.

Main features:
  • TechTool Protection - TechTool Pro includes the option of installing a system preference pane to keep watch over your Mac. New features include check for I/O errors, Power On Self-Test errors, Mac notebook internal battery condition, and RAID status (if applicable). It also includes the same improvements to the SMART check in TechTool Pro. All of that, wrapped in an entirely new interface.
  • Check Computer - Check Computer is a handy way to tell TechTool Pro to run the entire suite of tests to give you the best possible snapshot of your Mac's health. Sometimes, though, it's nice to be able to leave tests out, or to skip certain drives. Using the new configuration panel, you have total control of the Check Computer suite. Power to the people.
  • Partition Map - TechTool Pro has long been known for testing your Mac's file system. It is important also to test the data structures that contain the Mac's file system: the Partition Map. The new Partition Map test checks the partition map of a given drive for errors. Partition map errors can cause entire volumes to go missing, or prevent a Mac from booting. If errors are found, they can be repaired usin the Partition Repair tool.
  • Partition Repair - Along with Volume Rebuild, which repairs Mac file systems, the Partition Repair tool repairs the remaining portions of the drive which keeps track of the volumes on your hard drive. This includes hidden partitions which keep track of your Mac's startup process. The Partition Repair tool does just what it says, repairing the partition maps or drives where needed.
  • SMART Check - Hard drives include a technology called SMART (Self Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) which can inform a computer about the health of its hard drives. In most utilities, just the overall results - passed or failed - are reported to the user. In the failed state, often there is little or no time to back up data before the drive fails entirely. Previous versions of TechTool Pro reported the overall status of each attribute, but some attributes don't contribute to the failure of a drive. Now, the SMART Check has gotten smarter. TechTool Pro now knows which attributes contribute to drive failure, and will report a failing result before the drive fails completely. Giving you time to rescue your data.
  • Memory Test - TechTool Pro 7 took a revolutionary step in testing memory, making TechTool Pro's memory testing suite the most comprehensive test available for the Mac. In TechTool Pro 10, we've taken some of the additional advancements used by ATOMIC, our dedicated Memory Tester, and integrated them into TechTool Pro. Now, memory is 'cleaned' before testing, reclaimed from macOS, maximizing the amount of RAM that can be tested.
  • Processor Benchmark - Get an objective measurement of your Mac's processor performance. The Processor Benchmark too uses industry-standard measurement algorithms to test processor performance. Using this tool, you can get metrics that can be used to compare processor speeds apples-to-apples. Avoids the confusion of comparison using Megahertz.
  • Bluetooth - Most Macs depend on Bluetooth to connect to the tools we use to interact with our computers: the keyboard and mouse. Bluetooth problems can result in dropped connections with those devices, which can be very frustrating. Verify the proper operation of your Mac's Bluetooth hardware. Make sure that not only your input devices, but also your audio and fitness devices can connect to your Mac by checking the Bluetooth hardware on your Mac.
  • Network Interfaces - Most Macs spend the majority of their lives connected to the internet. If the ethernet or wifi adapters in your Mac aren't working, the valuable connection to the internet can fail. The new Network Interfaces test can test any connected network interface for errors. It not only tests ethernet and wifi, but also any other supported internet connection, ethernet over USB, VPN connections, even a FireWire network conneciton. Ensure the reilability of your internet and intranet connections by testing your Mac's network interfaces.

Like me, those of you who had v13.0.3 stop working, TT came out with a fix yesterday v13.0.4. They actually emailed me back telling me there would be a fix 4 days ago. Lived up to that. I have not tried to install it as of yet. Just sayin'.

Does anyone know if 14.0.1 will do volume rebuilds on SSDs, or if it works on Big Sur and APFS? This was once a great Swiss Army Knife for Macs, but its best utility (volume rebuild) became useless when it stopped working on SSDs and APFS.

Poor TechTool, poor Micromat. TechTool Pro is officially up to version 14, but here on MacUpdate, it's frozen in time at version 13 (?), while I never upgraded from 12. I used to upgrade regularly, mostly out of habit, but honestly, TT has never actually found a problem with my Macs. It has become superfluous. It might be useful for someone who supports many Mac owners, but that would require ProToGo to work reliably, which for me it never did. And it still doesn't seem to "get" Big Sur or SSV (Signed System Volume). TechTool was great back in the olden days when we all booted from hard drives. Does anyone actually do a surface scan anymore? I love the slick graphics with the Sensors and Fans tests, but that's not enough to justify the price. I use the free CLI 'smartmontools' (via MacPorts) which tells me all I need to know about my drives' 'SMART' characteristics. If you want to test memory, get the free memtest86. (www.memtest.org) TechTool Pro is a relic from a bygone era, really no longer relevant. -SB

I cannot say anything about the current version. However, "back in the day" TechTool produced software for the Apple IIGS and it worked perfectly. From my experience, once TechTool Pro entered the Mac world, it seemed to have a history of failure. I did purchase it a couple of times and I was not pleased with its performance. Frankly, it never ran properly. Alas, I won't buy it again.

Careful out there in the wonderland. This version 13.0.3 broke my TT. I am running High Sierra and it will not run at all, tells you as much AFTER you have updated it.....thanks for telling us pre update Micromat, ugh. Lucky for me I had run from their repair disk and was able to delete it and reinstall from my desktop app. C'mon guys, really......I'm really just about done with you after20yrs.

Nope. 13.0.1 worked great and allowed me to clean up my APS snapshots which was the main reason I bought it. A later update broke this feature but support sent me a beta version that worked. I waited for 13.0.3 to have a supported version but this release doesn't even run.

I've finally had it with Micromat's upgrade BS. I've had TTP for many years, and I am running v13 currently . Now they want 49.99 to "upgrade" to v14, and the only thing that looks new is support for Apple silicon. Big deal! I have an Intel Mac, and there seems to be nothing else that's new. Plus the last upgrade was "only" 29.99. Let's tack on an extra 20 to the price, and call it a deal! No thanks, I'm done.

Hurry, hurry, it's that ------ day for a quasi-update or subscription fee or blame Apple to nickel and dime long time users! In this case, Apple Silicon! TechTool Pro 14.x removes additional features and blames Apple all without even updating the User Interface. Pity, this creates a small shadow of a once larger application…

After spending days trying to get eDrive to work on my iMac, I've come to the conclusion that TechTool Pro 12 is simply not the program it used to be. I see no reason to move on to TTP13.
