Want to speed up your Mac and get rid of that spinning “beach ball”? Defragging your Mac hard drive with Drive Genius 3’s award-winning defrag tool is your best option to improve your hard disk drive’s speed and performance. Hey, who doesn’t want a faster Mac?
What does defragging a hard drive actually mean?
Your Mac has millions of files on its HDD. As the hard drive is used, the Mac starts to run out of space to put very large files. When that happens, your Mac fragments large files, places bits of the file in one location and other bits of it in other location.

The chaos of Black Friday seems to happen earlier and earlier every year. In fact, the mayhem starts so early, they should probably rename it Black Thursday-Friday.
But no matter how early you get in line for those time-release specials, there’s a chance that the supply is exhausted before the line is. And if you do get lucky and get what you want, your reward is another line just to check out. It’s quite a contrast to the calm and ease of doing your shopping online.
