MacKeeper is a software package which features a wide range of utilities to answer all of your problems. The developers of the program, Zeobit, have dubbed their impressive suite of sixteen different applications as a '911 call for your Mac'. As a Mac user you will probably be aware that it is important to create a remote Mac backup of all of those important files stored on your computer in case of any type of fatal system error or other incident which causes you to lose your data. With MacKeeper one of the tools provided is a fast and efficient backup tool.
The value of having a Mac backup is not quantifiable. There are so many situations where it can prove to be somewhat of a lifesaver. For example, if you are working on a major presentation for work which you have put months of work into and which might just land you that big promotion. However, the night before you are due to deliver that presentation to the board of directors you lose your data as the result of a system error. In this type of scenario you might be experience blind panic as you wonder how to recreate 3 months work in a single night – unless of course you have used MacKeeper to create a Mac backup of your presentation and have it safely tucked away on either an external storage device or uploaded to a secure FTP server.
It is of course copy to make copies of your files manually, but using a Mac backup utility is so much more efficient and less time consuming. MacKeeper's backup application allows you to create Mac backup copies at various different destinations and even allows you to schedule automatic backups. For files which you do not change or work with often, for example music files, home videos or photographs, it is fairly easy to simply copy them to an external storage device. However, if you have important documents and files which are accessed and edited frequently then this is not such a good solution. That is where the automatic mac backup utility from MacKeeper comes into it's own.
MacKeeper is the number one choice for Mac backup utilities because it allows you to create your own customized backup schedule as often as you require; it enables you to create an unlimited number of copies of your Mac backup, the utility can be run silently in the background without ever popping up and disturbing you as you work and best of all with MacKeeper you do not just get a Mac backup utility, you get a whole suite of applications to cover almost any issue you might have.

It is a little known fact that when you delete files or folders from your Mac they are not actually removed from the system, even after the trash file is emptied. What actually happens is that the operating system deletes the reference to the file so that it can no longer be accessed. The space occupied by that file is marked as free and can be overwritten by other files. However, if the files have not yet been overwritten by new files it is possible to recover those files with basic recovery files available for download on the internet. If the files you have deleted are of a sensitive nature then this can be a concern in terms of your Mac security.
If a publicly accessible programs can easily recover deleted files, then you can no doubt imagine how much more an experienced hacker could recover. If you have deleted files which contain personal information, banking details or tax records then this could be a serious concern. However, there is a way to delete files permanently with MacKeeper. The MacKeeper program developed by Zeobit consists of 16 powerful tools which can help to keep you Mac secure and running at the optimum level of performance. One of the most useful tools to improve your Mac security is the Shredder application.
Shredder can delete files or folders leaving no chance of recovery. The files are gone forever and even specialized software will not be able to retrieve the files. It is recommended that the Shredder application should be used when deleting all unneeded files that contain any of your private data. It is also recommended to use Shredder when selling your Mac that way you can be sure that all of your personal data is removed from the computer and can not be recovered by the new owner.
The Shredder application provided as part of the MacKeeper software program is easy to use. You simply have to drag ans drop the files you want to permanently remove and click on the Shred button. Protecting your personal data could not be any easier. The Shredder tool is just one of the Mac security features included with MacKeeper. The other Mac security features which are included are a powerful anti virus application offering dual protection against online threats, innovative anti theft features which not only geographically track stolen Macs but can also utilize the iSight cameras to take a snapshot of the thief, and data encryptor which allows you to protect files which contain personal information. Combined, these applications can really have a positive impact on your Mac security.
However, MacKeeper is more than just a security suite. The software also includes features which provide backups, optimize your Mac's operating system and keep your Mac running smoothly with a whole range of cleaning utilities. MacKeeper subscribers also have access to the Geek on Demand 24.7 support service which not only offers assistance with the MacKeeper software but also with other Mac technical support issues.
