OS 10.14.6
I am considering upgrading to Catalina. I have few questions. Are the following apps affected in a finiancial aspect or can still be opened... Disk warrior 5.2...TTP pro 14.0.4...iskysoft 11.6.6.2...Wondershare 13.6.3.2...superduper 3.7.5

Is ir possible to install tunes in any way? Lastly, what is the learning curve?

Disk Warrior 5.2 is definitely good to go. I can't definitively say about SuperDuper 3.7.5 but I suspect that it's OK. I know nothing about the others that you listed. As I recall, there is not a big difference between your current OS and Catalina so the learning curve should be minimal.

Like it or not, iTunes is inherent in all versions of macOS.

Thank you Jon & artie

I'll check with TTP and see what they say. In Catalina the word iTunes has gone but the iTunes is under different names. I didn't realize that.

Yes, iTunes app—>Music app. Although in the Music app you can go to the iTunes Store to purchase music, etc.

A word of caution since you mentioned some utilities that get down into the internals of the OS and/or use command line commands to do their thing. You should only use a version of Disk warrior, or TechTool Pro that is specific to the specific version of macOS that is on your computer. Versions of those apps written for either earlier or later macOS versions have the potential for significant damage, if the app will even launch (the developers now include code to prevent their running on the wrong macOS version). I don't know about SuperDuper, but I would verify its compatibility with the developer before running it.
