Stellar Drive ToolBox for Mac – Main Features
When launched, the Stellar Drive ToolBox for Mac welcomes users with a lot of features, all packed in a user-friendly design:
There are a lot of features when it comes t the Stellar Drive Toolbox for Mac and we have decided to try all of them in order to see how they work and is the experience worth the buck. Let’s see…
SpeedUp Mac Feature
The speed up feature is very easy to find when you first open the software and when we tried it, it started detecting old and useless applications. During the scan the feature detected binary files, large file types, duplicate files, files that belong in the Mac’s cache. In addition to this, there were also Quick scan and Strict scan options which can find duplicate files. Not only this, but the software was even able to detect and remove items, related to the logins. Not only this, but Speedup Mac is also capable of detecting duplicate files directly in applications, such as iTunes, iPhone Aperture and other “I” apps. Overall and all, the feature works in a fast manner and the experience is good.
Drive Clone Feature
The “Drive Clone” feature of this software did well when tested. It works in a secure manner that is tamper proof and can also make sure that you data is secured by being cloned against disasters. The features supports ExFAT and NTFS drives and works in MBR scheme. It works very fast and it can backup data accrding to scheduling that is automated.
Data Wipe Featue
Stellar Mac ToolBox is the type of program which assists in being able to wipe data from Macs in a way that is completely customizable as we saw. You can choose among specific files, folders and you can destroy all data from your drive with few clicks. The program si also able to freely and securely wipe data from your online behavior, messaging, file history and other.
This interesting feature is very easy to work with. It helps optimize your data and optimize your file partitions based on your requirements. The tool is easy to use as it identifies the partition right away and immediately shows what you can do with it. And the choice is rich as well. As user, you can navigate among deleting, adding, formatting, resizing, hiding and revealing partitions and many other options. IT also supports HFS, HFS+, FAT and NTFS partitions.
Similar to some defragmentation programs, this software has included a module that is known as “Drive Defrag”. This module allows for users to defragment files that have been selected, or even defragment your entire drive so that you can speed up your Mac. We did test it and did notice several important elements to speed up, like the Windows opening, the browsers opening web pages faster and others of this type. It is also very user-friendly showing you different blocks in different colors and hence enabling you to see what is going on and where in your drive.
Drive Initialize Feature
This feature is basically a more automated approach, allowing that your mac has no difficulties in erasing drives.
Volume Repair Feature
With this “Volume Repair” feature, you can see troublesome volumes on your Mac. These volumes can allow you to easily fix those drives and in the same time optimize them by rebuilding their file system to make them run smooth and fast.
Disk Editor Feature
This feature is the type of tool created for the ones who want to make changes of the drive other than optimize it. It allows to fix corruption or errors via accessing your files on a byte level. It allowed us to edit hex values of files in order to bring them back to normal and make them openable again.
To best understand this feature, we will tell you that it is some form of a backup for your hard drive so that if you delete files accidentally, you can use this feature to recover them. This is done with the idea to take a snapshot image of the hard drive and then overwrite the existing image on it.
Drive Monitor is the type of tool that helps you control yoru Mac easier by acting in the background and monitoring your PC if it’s “too full” or “too unoptimized” and other problems with it. We even tried to set limits for when the Drive Monitor should alert you and ask to perform automatic optimiations so that you won’t have to constantly open the program. Useful, indeed.
Smart Mac Care
This particular feature is the type off scheduling feature that allows you to run each component and module of this toolbox automatically at any point in time that is suitable for you, for example when you are not working.
Data Encryption Feature
Being another one of those useful programs and features, the Data Encryptor is the module that allows you to safeguard your secret files from prying eyes. This gives you the ability of choosing standard encryption mode and the software uses this to make your digital content safe and hidden.
This is the type of feature that helps you to evaluate the performance of your Mac’s hard drives and decide what to do to make it faster in terms of storage and performance efficiency.
What We Like
- A lot of value for money.
- User-friendly design.
- Automated monitoring and scheduling.
What Is Missing
- Could support more than 3 languages.
- Not a lot of focus on cyber-security and antivirus, unlike some competitor products, likeCombo Cleaner.
- The technicians’ license could be cheaper.
To briefly put it, the Stellar Drive Toolbox for Mac is the type of program which is very easy and pleasant to use and with this much automation, you can easily forget it’s installed on your Mac. This makes it almost unnecessary for you to need to speed up your Mac again. Not only this but it is also a great program for fixing drives and also a perfect backup and file encryption utility.
