TOPIC: TTP 4 and Mac OS 10.6

TTP 4 and Mac OS 10.6 24 May 2011 05:20 #606

Been very comfortable with TTP for years. Now thinking of upgrading Mac Pro to OS 10.6x or 10.7. Currently running TTP 4.6.2 with OS 10.5.8.

Will TTP 4.6.2 function with the new operating system or do I need to upgrade to TTP 6?

If I upgrade to TTP6 are the Protection Setup files from TTP 4 available for TTP 6?

What guidelines do you recommend before upgrading?

I read you have to uninstall TTP 4 before installing TTP 6.

TechTool Pro 4.6.2 is not compatible with Snow Leopard.

Use the Uninstall feature of the TechTool Pro 4.x installer to remove the older version before installing the new system software. Uninstalling the older version will remove its Protection files, which would be made obsolete by the new system software in any case. Then install TechTool Pro 6, launch the application, and configure the features in the TechTool Protection system preferences pane.

How do you use the TechTool Pro 4.x installer if my system (10.6.8) will not boot from the TechTool Pro 4.6.1 DVD? I've got an eDrive stuck on my desktop with no apparent way to remove it short of buying and installing TechTool Pro 6.

Before you begin, make sure you have a backup of all volumes on the device that contains the eDrive.

TechTool Pro 4.x is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.x.

If you are running Mac OS X 10.5 or greater, use Disk Utility
(/Applications/Utilities) to remove the eDrive. With Disk Utility, select
the physical hard drive that the eDrive volume currently resides and then
click on the Partition tab. In the Volume Scheme portion of the Partition
tab, click on the eDrive volume and then click on the "-" square button to
remove the eDrive partition. You'll be asked if you want to remove this
partition; proceed with removing it.

Now, you'll want to reclaim the free space that the eDrive had back to the
original partition. Drag the grow corner for the parent partition and then
click on the Apply button. You'll be prompted to Partition, proceed with
partition the free space back to the parent volume. This should give you
back the partition space once used by the eDrive volume you just removed.

So, on reading this thread, I surmise that I can't use Techtool Pro 4 with OS X 10.6.8
Can I regress the system back to 10.5.8 since there is really nothing "improved" about Snow Leopard anyway?

Yes, provided your model can boot with Leopard, and that the App Store is not of concern to you. Please see this thread and search on the page for the word "archive", and make a backup before you begin. I suggest you do some reading online about this particular regression to see what other people have discovered about it.
