Statements with complaints that it is not a "full version demo" are somewhat misleading: the demo performs all the preliminary steps except for actual repartitioning; it has "Buy" button in the demo instead of "Go" in the purchased version. Since the program may only be used once or twice by a customer, it would be unfair to ask the company to provide an effectively free product.

As for the program itself, I had 1TB USB drive with three partitions that I wanted to reduce to one. iPartition performed flawlessly, while Drive Genius 2 refused to handle the drive (in fact, it seem only be able to add partition to drives that have only a single partition on them). The downside, is that it took about 40 hrs (!) in the Safe Mode to do so on a fast MB Pro. I am also concerned about the price: one can buy a large capacity drive for the money, move the files, repartition and move the files back.

I have had very limited success with recovery. Repartitioning is also very limited as DG only offers me to partition drives with a single partition, yet refuses to handle those with several partitions (iPartition, on the other hand, handled those flawlessly, even as it takes a very long time to do so). Formatting is useful as it managed to format the large capacity external drives that Disk Utility could not reformat.

Very nice, useful and reliable. Use both on Macs and PC's.

Another note: if you have Toast, it works just fine with FairMount mounted disks...

A follow-up to my review: I may not have been sufficiently clear, but DVDRemaster saves the DVD to a folder on the HD; I use Toast solely to write an image file from the folder but it may be not necessary as DVD Remaster itself (and Disk Utility for sure) may be able to handle this on its own,

The interface is a bit clunky. To make a backup of a licensed DVD, one must launch FairMount first and wait till it mounts the DVDs and then proceed to launch DVDRemaster and select the images mounted by FairMount as sources. After that, just wait and voila. Works about as fast as MacTheRipper and I haven't had a DVD encryption yet it was unable to handle. I am very happy with the program and am surprised about some of the negative reviews and their claim of failure. I give it a full 4.5 stars, P.S. After I remaster, I usually save to HD with Toast for the event when the purchased DVD may become unreadable and I'd need a new DVD; that may not be necessary as DVDRemaster has an ability to burn, so it might be able to save an image as well -- I did not try as I am used to Toast.

The included macps2pdf is extremely useful: converts ps->eps, fixes eps, does other conversions (handy for TeX, etc). The author gave me an unlock code, after I paid my shareware fee, in 2003 and it still works, two full versions later! PS Viewing is immediate, unlike Preview and Xwin, and zooms in on parts of the figure with a click of the mouse. For my work, the package has been indispensable.

A followup to my previous comment: the last version of Cyberduck that runs on my mirrored drive dual 867 MHz G4 PM 10.4.11 is 2.8.2; 2.8.3 and up are broken.

I had donated in the past but haven't used Cyberduck for a while. Gave 3.0 a try -- no browser window upon launch. Doesn't respond to New Browser either. In fact, does not draw any windows, e.g. in response to About Cyberduck. Downgraded to 2.8.4 -- same effect. And yes, I have trashed its Prefs file and its folder in App Support before each launch...
