We have been using Norton SystemWorks for several years. With the newer operating systems it is my understanding Norton no longer supports us Mac users. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a replacement product that does the same work as disk doctor and defrag?

Thanks

Techtool Pro should do the job. But I must say OSX has little need for such programs. I run 'onyx' every once in a while which runs the maintenance scripts. Haven't had to re-install in years and have few if no problems. Techtool pro has a nice recover program to recover lost data but the upcoming version of OSX 10.5 also has a backup and recover service and de-fragmentation is no longer needed with OSX. Anyway, here is a link to Techtools website if your still interested:
