MacTools 3.0 is now available from Central Point Software with new features, including TrashBack and AutoCheck, two System 7-only utilities that enable one-step file undeleting from the Finder's Special menu and automatic background disk checking. DiskFix now finds corrupt files and fixes corrupt Desktop files; Backup uses fewer disks; FastCopy returns to the package from version 1.x; and an Emergency Disk Builder feature helps you create an emergency disk for your system, enabler and all. MacTools 3.0 lists for $149.95, but upgrades from previous versions or any competing data-protection or virus-protection program cost $49.95.
