PhotoSweeper helps organizing your photo collections and photo-library, by finding and grouping duplicate or similar photos. It works with photos from Apple Photos, iPhoto, Aperture, Adobe Lightroom and Capture One* libraries, as well as photos from your (external)hard drives.
We all save photo’s to our Mac’s Photo-Library and may also store photo’s on external discs for safekeeping or backup. Photo’s need to be taken care off always. When you are a more experienced user of photo-editing applications, you change and edit photo’s frequently and store them in different formats or editing styles. In the end we end up with a huge library file containing many duplicate photo’s making your library cluttered and contain duplicate picture folders. Scanning my own Photo-Library containing 20.000 pictures came up with 1000 duplicate picture-files.
PhotoSweeper uses picture search preference-settings to find the real duplicate or changed pictures.( Top-slides )
The interface is simple and provides all needed information. Marking photo’s for deletion is easy and can be done manually and automatic. Scanning is fast ! Scanning 20.000 pictures and compare them to another folder only took a few minutes.
Scanning may need permission from your Mac-Sierra system.

OPTIONS FOR REPAIR
PhoneRescue presents all possible recovery methods, known by the editor. The user is presented with an overview and guidelines regarding your phones problem. Just read all given failure descriptions and pick your recovery option. Without the guidelines you would be unable to make the right choices. So, big plus for the program layout and clear statements.
If your phone can’t connect to PhotoRescue the hardware of your phone will be too damaged in some way. So best way is to try out and download the free version and see if the phone will make connection with PhoneRescue.
The recover options from an existing backup wether its a iTunes, iCloud or the device itself are common and work without any problems. The IOS Repair Tools however are most interesting to me
as they do the most diffycult task of all.
IOS REPAIR TOOLS
This scenario wants you to connect your phone to your computer and follow the steps presented. It is best if you first read https://www.imobie.com/guide/phonerescue/ios-repairing-tools.htm and
understand the procedure to follow. This procedure works well, and restores your phone to a factory default state. So all your info will be lost, but you endup with a working phone again.
PhoneRescue is the swiss army knife for repairing your phone or recovering of your lost data. It looks great with a clean interface and does what it claims to do. I am particularly impressed with the detailed problem descriptions and ‘ How To ‘, repairing or recovering your device. It makes it usable for all users, which is a big plus.
If you’re desperate and almost want to give up on your phone, get this tool to sort things out for you. Mind you, do use the try-out version first in order to see if your phone will connect anyway.

SCANNING DATA STORAGE
One of the most important features of Stellar Data Recovery is the capability to scan and recover ‘ encrypted disks ‘, a real bonus as many storage drives are encrypted for safety.
Scanning large harddisks takes some time. It is not something thats done in a few minutes. However the software provides a setting for specific disk area to be scanned.
In the lost photo test, it recovered 100 percent of the photos. Don’t forget that 1% less recovery result amounts to 10Gb on a 1 TB harddisk, and this 10gb might just be your most precious photo’s or data.
It performs really well recovering lost data, but it is slow !
If you’re recovering data on a 1TB HDD drive, the scan takes days and the recovery takes days as well.Then again, if THIS software will bring back your data, it is well worth spending time and effort in doing so.
STELLAR MAC DATA RECOVERY is what it claims to be, a great data recovery tool which is easy to use and produces high recovery results between 95-100% depending on the format.. Its not fast but scores well.
The software’s additional data management features and extensive compatibility can help your most challenging recovery to be more successful.

DOES YOUR MAC NEED MAINTENANCE ?
Reviewing software like CleanMyMac automatically pops the question, ‘ Does a Mac need maintenance’ ? A valid remark considering MAC’s are less affected by system failures to windows systems.
However an average Mac user, changing to latest software versions, doing lots of trails and uses his mac daily, will in time accumulate leftovers in the OSX-system. This is where a software package like CleanMyMac is a good option for optimizing your system and keeps your mac running smoothly.
CleanMyMac is performing a real-time health check, and informs the user of any problems ( memory , storage limits and temperatures ). Popups appear when software becomes unresponsive
The build in Uninstaller performs really well and removes the software and all leftovers, with just one click. Easy and safe. A neccesary utility for every user.
Re-indexing, disk permissions and optimizing mail are some other benefits of CleanMyMac 3.
The removal of widgets, extensions and plugins is another great feature. Finally the Shredder will make your trash really gone.
The interface of CleanMyMac is beautiful and intuitive for all users. A full overview of options makes the job easier. Using the Smart Cleanup button, scans the full system and provides a scan result and the action button.
I personally always check all suggestions for deleting finally. Large files are mostly the unneeded language, system and photo junk files. Cache of your used browsers can also be cleaned, but you may not always want this done. An action confirmation is presented to the user for system critical removals. After a confirmation a report is presented with overall results.
CleanMyMac offers an option for freeing up memory. Again a useful feature. OSX itself has a build in RAM freeing code, but this is not always freeing up all memory available. Now this feature makes it all happen with just one click on the button.
The uninstaller is an important feature which should be used by all Mac users. Ofcourse there are many third party products on the market, which do the job as good, but again it proofs that this all-in package is a good deal.
Just deleting software folders is not removing all internal links. It is important that if you decide to remove an app, it is done using an Uninstaller. Compared to third party uninstallers like AppDelete, the Uninstaller of CleanMyMac finds even more results. Thats really good as AppDelete is one of the better third party packages.
Only use this if you know what you are doing. All files will be deleted permanently !
So how fast is a FULL system scan ( 1Tb with 450 Gb real data ) ? Answer 4 minutes, that is fast I think.
If you want to check the scan time, you may check the recorded scan-video.
This software package is a great full featured package which makes your Mac run smooth and safe. Beautiful interface and easy handling are a benefit to the user.
My advice ? Consider buying, if you want to make life easy.
