LaCie has released Silverlining Pro 6.4.1, the latest version of its Mac storage-management software.

The software ships with LaCie's storage utilities. The stripped-down version, Silverlining Lite, ships free with LaCie's drives.

Version 6.4.1 offers Mac OS 9.1 compatibility and the latest firmware updates for LaCie USB and FireWire drives. Features include better handling of ATA, SCSI, FireWire and USB disk drives.

The update also offers password protection, FireWire booting and better plug-&-play compatibility. It provides an optional 64KB block-size capability for HFS+ (Hierarchical File System) disk partitions, and improved compatibility with Mac OS versions up to and including OS 9.1. The updater is available from LaCie.
