[prMac.com] Reston, Virginia – Software and Computer Systems Company, LLC (SCSC) has announced a sale on all available packages of Scannerz with FSE, Scannerz with FSE-Lite, and Scannerz Lite for the Mac OS X operating system. The sale will end at midnight on June 20, 2014. Every package combination will be discounted by 30% during this time. Scannerz with FSE or FSE-Lite also come bundled with Performance Probe and Phoenix.
“We’re offering this discount to encourage people to come and visit our web site, become more familiar with our products, and to explore all the information we have available to Mac users,” stated Bill Wagner, the company owner. “The Scannerz line of products has been greatly improved, enhanced, and made even easier to use over the past few years, and our once somewhat complicated users manual has been re-written and includes step by step instructions for users. The new manual not only illustrates how to perform basic tests on hard drives and SSDs, but also explains how to isolate more complex problems, such as faulty SATA and I/O cables, as well as identify many problems with the system bus and RAM.”
“Many people often scoff at the idea of testing their systems periodically, often stating ‘I have backups, so I don’t need to do tests.’ Unfortunately, one of our clients recently found out the hard way that the backup drives they use don’t last forever. They fail just like any other drive. In this particular case, the user lost over 30 gigabytes of data on an old backup drive he thought would apparently last forever. It didn’t. Scannerz test results indicated that the media itself was failing due to not only age, but also because of developing mechanical problems. The drive was riddled with weak sectors, which can develop with age, and if he had done periodic scans with Scannerz, the abnormal presence of weak sectors would have told him problems were beginning to develop. Hopefully this sale will encourage people to at least consider testing their systems once in a while and recognize how easy it can be.”
SCSC has indicated that this pricing will be in effect only until June 20, 2014, but the company likes to stress the fact that all upgrades to any of their products are free of charge.Software and Computer Systems Company
