Save your Mac for free!
This weeks edition of Freeloader Friday features a couple utilities that could save your Mac and speed it up.
In times of woe (sad Macs, lost System Folders), there was always a way out: the startup disk. Nowadays, with Mac OS X it isn’t so simple to startup from a CD. You can boot from an install disk, but the good old days of a fully operational system on a disk are gone. Or are they?
BootCD is a utility that creates a fully bootable system disk. It also alows you to include self-contained applications on the disk as well. Though still in it’s 0.5 version, this utility is fully functional and could save you in a pinch.
This utility targets the left-over cache files that can accumulate on your disk. Keeping your caches clean can save disk space and increase stability in your applications.
So whether it’s through everyday maintenance or a bail out in a time of need, todays freebees could be just what your Mac needs.
See you next week with more indispensable freeware,
