Free Tips to Improve Mac Performance

Mac systems are generally trouble free but Mac users are immune to the problems of computer slowdowns and other glitches. As with all things, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. There are some free tips that you can use to improve your Mac performance and keep it in tip-top shape.
  1. Free up space on your hard drive - For best performance of Mac, hard drive should have 20% of free space. There are so many cache files, language file and system junks remain in hard disk. You shoud start removing theses files either manually or by using any software.
  2. Defragment your hard drive – Defragmentation is a very good way to keep fragmented files together in hard drive. It reduces data accessing time.
  3. Back it Up - The first and most important thing you should do to keep a backup of your important files, or even the entire system. To clone the entire system are the best solution . Make a bootable clone of your hard drive is a good idea to do before performing large system updates, or something to schedule timely. We can schedule backups by using Time Machine.
  4. Check drive status time to time :- You should check S.M.A.R.T status of hard drive so that you could ensure if any problem in hard drive or disk failure condition. You can perform these task via Disk utility(inbuilt function in Mac OS X).
  5. Beware of memory leaks - Some people may leave their systems running constantly, or put them to sleep without restarting the system. If any running software has memory leaks, it will start to consume more and more system memory. Quitting and restarting these memory hogs will reduce memory consumption.
By performing all these tasks we can keep our Mac optimized. All these tasks can be performed by using third party tool 'Stellar Drive Toolbox'. It is a complete Mac optimization tool.
