[prMac.com] Novosibirsk, Russian Federation – Alice Dev Team today is pleased to announce USBMate 1.1 for Mac OS X, its must-have utility that optimizes and accelerates the operation of USB Flash drives, external hard disks, and Flash memory cards. Available from the Menu Bar, USBMate removes all temporary files left behind, and its anti-virus routines automatically find and purge all AutoRun viruses that may be on the drive. Because thumb drives can easily carry viruses from infected computers, it is essential that users clean and optimize their USB Flash drives regularly with USBmate. According to Wikipedia, “USB flash drives may also be used deliberately or unwittingly to transfer malware and autorun worms onto a network.”
* Convenient utility is available from the Menu Bar
* Optimizes and accelerates the operation of USB Flash drives, external hard disks, and Flash memory cards
* AutoRun viruses on the USB drive are detected and purged automatically
* Reclaim space on the drive by erasing unneeded data completely
* New, 1.1 update makes USBMate compatible with large, external USB-drives
Although modern USB drives operate seamlessly when plugged in to computers running Linux, OS X, or Windows, each operating system leaves behind invisible and temporary files and folders that take up space unnecessarily. Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, and Windows all put temporary and other junk files (.DS_Store, .Trashes, .Spotlight-V100, Thumbs.db, etc.) on a USB Flash drive each time it is used. Launching USBMate each time before ejecting a USB Flash Drive will keep it clean, secure, and free of useless files.
When users erase files from a USB Flash drive, they are only moved to the trash. The data itself is not erased. Using USBMate allows users to see how much free space is really left on their USB Flash drive. USBMate is one of the most practical utility apps for everyday use with Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion.
“We are proud of our new OS X utility, which was rated 8 out 10 by MacTech,” commented Stanislav Kuptsov of Alice Dev Team. “This is the kind of inexpensive utility that every Mac user should own.”
