    Tell us in particular, what you're looking for in a maintenance program? Onyx is pretty full-featured. I'm having a hard time understanding what the deficiency is.

    Also note that maintenance programs do not "free up memory" as per the title of your thread, they free up hard disk space (hopefully). Your memory is purged every time you turn the machine off.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    TechTool is a very usefull app. that helps you set up all you need( back up, test, ect...) but personally I prefer onyx for the day to day
