Comprehensive Systems Testing
Techtools Pro 12 can do comprehensive systems testing to see if any components are weakening, weakened or failing. In this article “Techtools Pro v11 can handle Mojave’s AFPS File System” the only real significant difference between 11 and 12 is the ability to work on Catalina.

That Techtools Pro 12 is Catalina compatible is what makes this tool stand out and provide its value.
By reading the article on Mojave and Techtools Pro you will have good understanding of the software. Knowing that it is compatible with Catalina is to know it will work. When you’re in that pinch it might just be the thing that saves your bacon.
