San Francisco, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc's (NASDAQ: SMSI) Allume Systems Division, today introduced the CheckIt® Repair and Performance Suite at MacWorld San Francisco (Booth 1237). The CheckIt Repair and Performance Suite brings three leading utilities together in one package: SpringCleaning® a powerful "Uninstaller" and cleanup utility designed to help users rid their computer of unnecessary and redundant files; TechTool® Platinum, a full featured version of Micromat, Inc.'s leading diagnostic and repair tool; and EMC Dantz Retrospect Express®, flexible and intuitive personal backup and restore software. CheckIt Repair and Performance Suite is the perfect solution for those who can't afford to loose important files or the down-time associated with hardware problems and want to maintain their Mac at peak performance while ensuring that their critical files are backed up and protected.

"With powerful new features including the ability to gather photos and music files, folder synchronization, Widget Finder, and other features, CheckIt Repair & Performance helps take the guesswork out of managing files on your Macintosh," said Pauline Shumake, Smith Micro's Senior Product Manager. "When it comes to locating and collecting media files, or removing outdated, orphaned, or redundant files, there is no tool out there more powerful than this latest version of SpringCleaning."

"TechTool Platinum truly is the next generation disk utility for the Macintosh. Whether you're looking to optimize a drive, repair its directory structure, recover lost or trashed files, or just the peace of mind of knowing your drive is in good shape, TechTool Platinum is the tool to reach for," said Christian Pickman, Micromat Incorporated Product Manager. "Our eDrive feature means you can recover from many problems without carrying around a bunch of CD's."

"EMC Dantz Retrospect Express complements the other utilities in Allume's new suite because it gives users a powerful and flexible tool to protect their files," said Larry Zulch, Vice President and General Manager, EMC Dantz, EMC Corporation.

"By bringing these three tools together in a single package at a fabulous price, what I hope to bring the user is greater peace of mind," said David Polzine, CheckIt Product Manager at Smith Micro. "This is the solution to reach for when things go wrong on your Mac."
