Not only is EtreCheck slow and ugly, it's totally useless and does not provide better or more useful information that the built in macOS tools offer. Utterly pointless yet somehow spammed everywhere on forums. Glad it got taken off the App Store!

At the time of this writing (v6.8), EtreCheck is indeed free and generates a file that will be readable in a paid version, but if you send the report via mail, it will contain a lot of useful information in plain text — enough to roughly diagnose a friend's Mac before putting your hands on it. :-)

Etrecheck is a great app. Liked it so bought the paid Pro version for full features. It gives a really detailed, comprehensive view of my system, including extensions, daemons. It even has a disk use visualizer. Don't know where the star ratings are on MacUpdate, but I give this app 5 stars.

I’m always surprised at the number of whingers who leave reviews. If the app doesn’t suit you then don’t use it. Also if you think the app has deficiencies go away and develop one that suits you. For me ECP does everything that it says it does at a reasonable cost.

You're not serious, are you, Foulger?? Onyx can't really 'fix' any major problem, and compared to DW - even at the current version - EtreCheck is laughable at handling any major disk corruption. Alsoft is awaiting APPLE to issue information that they are late by 2 years now - maybe these Congressional hearings will get crazy-Cooke to get moving!

EtreCheck told me my HD was about to fail. Concerned, I boxed up my Mac and took it to the Apple Store to have a new HD installed. After testing I was told my HD was fine....that was 2 years ago and still no problems.

Best thenceing since fried eggs. I'm so glad the developer is charging for it now. With Diskwarrior for all intents and purposes dead in the water, Etrecheck Pro and Onyx are my two big maintenance apps. Worth every cent

Etrecheck may be helpful for some but beware it is like a phishing email. It says it’s free, and some of it is, but it’s actually an app that gets you to install it for free, generates a report that you can see part of but you have to pay for the rest of it, and a it does is collect information from your computer and puts it in a pretty package so you won’t be scared, just intimidated. Just call Apple Support and save your time and money.

On the surface it appears to be a good application for cleaning my Mac system. ever, when I ran it, it would not complete. The progress bar was near completion but just hung there for 5 hours. I ended up terminating it by force quitting the application. can you help?

On the surface it seems to be a good solution. However, when I ran it on my system it never completed, even after 4 full hrs. The progress bar had almost reached the end but would not complete. What can I do to make it complete the process?

The app hasn't really told me of anything I didn't already know about my Mac, as I already run a pretty tight system. But I can see where it would be useful for less technical users to obtain help resolving issues with their systems. However, it has been very helpful in identifying the non-64-bit apps still on my computer before I upgrade to Catalina. It does summarize your computer in an easy to understand format.

The best single diagnostic app available for the Mac. However in the newest release,6.1.7, includes this note which is bound to provoke thought and controversy. It is giving me pause to think for sure!: Probably one of the most widely misunderstood topics is computer security. First of all, remember that Apple provides multiple layers of antivirus and malware protection in the macOS operating system itself. You don’t need any 3rd party antivirus protection. When you first turned on your Mac, it was probably the most secure that it has ever been. Most suggestions posted on the internet to install software or change system settings will make your machine less secure. Many popular 3rd party security products are simply scams and give you no protection of any kind. Most of the popular media headlines about security exploits do not concern your Macintosh. Do not pay attention to news media or bloggers. Trust Apple. Apple has a team of professional software engineers who specialize in system security. If your machine needs an update for security, Apple will provide it. The only security issue that is really a problem for Mac users is adware. Technically speaking, Adware is legal, although not ethical, and produced by actual companies, sometimes large companies. Adware uses deception and scams to trick you into installing it. Apple’s built-in security will not protect you from adware. Many popular 3rd security products also provide no protection from adware. EtreCheck will detect, and help you disable, virtually any current or new adware. Unlike traditional security software, EtreCheck does not rely exclusively on a signature list of known adware. Instead, EtreCheck looks at the behaviour and characteristics of software on your system in order to classify it as adware or not. EtreCheck only disables adware, rendering it a harmless file. EtreCheck cannot completely remove adware. There are a handful of other software products that can effectively and completely remove adware, but they require system modifications that could make your machine slow down or crash. These other products also cannot detect brand new adware as effectively as EtreCheck. If you have any questions about software that might be adware, EtreCheck allows you to ask for help from Apple Support Communities or directly from Etresoft itself. Apple Support Communities EtreCheck was designed for use in Apple Support Communities. On Apple Support Communities, there are thousands of knowledgeable volunteers available 24/7 to help you with your Mac problems. In virtually every case, you will receive prompt, polite, and effective help on Apple Support Communities. However, this forum is publicly accessible by anyone on the internet. Not everyone is prompt, polite, knowledgeable, or honest. Etresoft is not responsible for any suggestions or procedures that could damage your machine or cause you to lose data. Before you can copy your EtreCheck report, you will have to acknowledge this and agree to the EtreCheck Terms of Use. Unfortunately, that is just the world we live in today.
