So basically this software is like a bundle of many system utilities that helps to improve my OS X performance and keep system free from the unwanted events like disk failure, corruption etc. This product i.e. Stellar's drive toolbox is a multi-tasking Mac software that can perform several essential functions. Other than speeding up Mac, cloning a Mac, drive defrag, wipe, surface scan, etc. it has many other functionalities:
