I just purchased the product to merge old translation files with new - FileMerge from Apple can't compare folders as easily and is a nightmare to merge only select lines from old to new in a quick and safe way.
- the price is right at less than 40$ and the product easily saves you much more time than what it takes to pay for it.
- the software just works, is pleasant to use, and even though it feels a bit "java-ish" in places the advantage in multi platform availability trounces whatever cosmetic advantage would yield a mac os x only version.
- comparing and merging of long files and folders is a snap.
- support is fast and responsive, always a mark of the best.

Ditto for corrupted disk after optimizing with drive genius on macbook Pro os x 10 5 6

I used it succesfully twice in the past, but after such a bad experience, I am extremely wary to try it again. Unfortunately the lost time+work on that problem will never be made up by any speed gains due to a succesful optimization.

To optimize, the most efficient and free techinque seems to boot from an external CD, create a disk image copy to an external drive, reformat and recover the disk image. This will copy all files as a contiguous, defragged block. No hassle no backup on the fly defrag seems too risky to try.

You can use dropbox to replace this. 2gb free, seamless integration, history of your files

Totally overpriced especially since the free Grandperspective application gives a faster, and visually better information about your files.
