Malware? Intruders? Bad Apps?
Misbehaving applications, malware, and intruders leave their "fingerprints" on the file system. We offer FSE, the advanced file system events monitor to help you find the culprit.

FSE allows a user to not only monitor all file system events, but can also target the occurrence of specific file system events such as system or application crashes, security problems, the causes of excessive file I/O, track and trace the source of malware, and a host of other tasks.

Mysterious Performance Problems?
Performance Probe 2 is an operating system tool that can identify how heavily loaded your system is and allow you to isolate loading problems with its new load monitoring features. Instead of just reporting on free memory, freed disk space, or simple CPU use, the new Performance Probe launches threads, known as “timing probes” that measure system response times and, with its new HUD display, allows you to perform load monitoring and filtering, while also allowing you to view actual drive and network loading graphically in real time.  Learn More...
 
Create Boot Volumes and Perform Basic Cloning
It happens to everyone. The system that was working fine one day now won't boot. Be prepared by creating an emergency boot volume of the full, core operating system with Phoenix. Phoenix can extract the core operating system from your hard drive and copy it to an emergency boot drive, or any other drive, including a small USB flash drive. Phoenix can also perform complete volume copies (clones) from one drive to another. This product is also ideal for users that have lost their original install media, have a malfunctioning optical drive, or don’t have network access to download a new version of the latest operating systems to perform another operating system installation.
