I’m getting mixed messages on whether its necessary to run maintenance utilities/programs as a protective agent or only if something goes wrong. I was told by Micromat that I should run Techtools Pro 6 weekly especially on the volume rebuild and the Cocktail people told me I should run their program at least weekly to keep my iMac clean, efficient and prevent trouble. I’ve had others, such as Dave Nanian, the maker of SuperDuper that he only runs say Disk Warrior if there’s a problem. I don’t want to do something that is unnecessary and may cause potential problems if its not necessary but if there’s value in it I certainly don’t mind.


I just like to get some feedback from other Mac users.
