Drive Genius gets maintenance update

Prosoft Engineering released an update for its disk utility, Drive Genius. The update fixes several items with the application.

Drive Genius 2.1.1 improves the performance and reliability of the Defrag tool and fixed a bug that caused the error "test aborted by disk" S.M.A.R.T. warnings in Mac OS X 10.5.x. A crash during launch on PowerPC machines running Mac OS X 10.4 if information about installed languages could not be obtained, has also been fixed.

Drive Genius' DriveSlimsearch now excludes Adobe and Microsoft applications because their updates would fail if language bundles were removed or their binaries were trimmed.

Drive Genius 2.1.1 can be downloaded from the company's Web site.
