On Thursday, shareware developer Maintain released version 5.3.3 of CocktailCocktail (Lion Edition), the popular shareware utility program that allows for additional Mac OS X system tests. The new version, a 3 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and features:
– Added the “Use SRM secure delete” option to the “Force empty Trash” feature. SRM removes each file by overwriting, renaming, and truncating it before unlink-ing. This option meets the US Department of Defense (DOD) 5220-22M standard for securely erasing magnetic media. It erases the information used to access your files and writes over the data 7 times.
– Addresses an issue in which Cocktail may not be able to repair permissions on RAID sets.
– Other minor improvements and bug fixes.
– Various minor bug fixes and improvements.
– Updated Help.
Cocktail 5.3.3 retails for a US$19.00 shareware registration fee and requires Mac OS X 10.7 or later to install and run.
