Reston, Virginia – Software and Computer Systems Company, LLC (SCSC) has announced that it has updated Scannerz Lite for Mac OS X. The update follows a similar update one week ago of the company’s primary product, Scannerz for OS X.
“This update brings Scannerz Lite in line with our fully featured version of Scannerz,” stated an SCSC spokesman. “Scannerz Lite, just like it’s big brother Scannerz will now have full support for all CoreStorage related components, such as full volume encryption under File Vault 2, Fusion Drives, multiple drive and volume spanning under a single logical volume, as well as full support for Apple RAID. It also, like Scannerz, now has support for most implementations of hardware RAID and limited support for third party software RAID implementations.”
“Scannerz Lite differs from Scannerz in that it is intended to be used primarily for testing and evaluating the hard drive. The fully featured version of Scannerz is capable of analyzing a drive and its subsystem components, providing an historical performance analysis of the drive and system, and can be used in troubleshooting both hard drive and system related products. Scannerz Lite is much easier to use, with a very simple user interface. With this update, an end user will be able to perform tests on drives on any regular hard drive, any of the newer CoreStorage configurations, and most RAID implementations. All of our current customers using Scannerz Lite will be receiving an e-mail notice from us in the near future allowing them to obtain this new version, at no cost of course. As with all versions of Scannerz-Lite, there will be no version of our file system event monitors, FSE or FSE-Lite included in Scannerz-Lite.”

SCSC has indicated that there is no price change in their product line, with the cost of Scannerz Lite being $17.95 (USD), Scannerz with FSE-Lite being $34.95 (USD) and Scannerz with FSE being $44.95.
