TechTool Pro 4 Update & Boot DVD 09 Apr 2012 07:27 #2237

I use TechTool Pro 4.5.2.CD. I've downloaded the TechTool Pro 4.6.2.dmg. Installer. (I haven't used it yet).

Can I make a DVD that incorporates the info from the TechTool Pro 4.5.2. CD and the TechTool Pro 4.6.2.dmg Installer? And if possible, how would I go about it?

I do not know of any way of doing what you are describing. You can make a new TechTool Pro 4.6.2 bootable DVD by clicking the "How Do I Create a Bootable TechTool Pro DVD" title at www.micromat.com/support .

You should run TechTool Pro from a bootable hard drive volume, an eDrive, or a bootable USB memory stick (for Intel-based models only). When the program is run from a locked volume, such as a bootable DVD, virtual memory cannot be used, and no log files can be written.

Edward,

The upgrade page at www.micromat.com/techtoolpro requests a serial number from a previous version of TechTool Pro. It does not specify what previous version. If you have your TechTool Pro 3 serial number, please give it a try, and if it does not work, contact the sales department tomorrow.

If I purchase the update will I receive a hard copy of the CD or do I burn it?

Once you purchase TechTool Pro 6, you will have the option of downloading an application installer or downloading a disk image of a bootable DVD. Both options are always there, at the bottom of the Login/Register page, under Available Downloads.

It is preferable to run TechTool Pro from a hard drive volume, an eDrive, or a USB memory stick, rather than from a bootable DVD. When the Macintosh is booted from a locked volume, such as a bootable DVD, virtual memory cannot be used, and no log files can be written.

Having three swapfiles is normal, and not a cause for concern.

If your version 3 serial number does not work in this store, you will have to contact the sales department tomorrow. They will be happy to help you. There are some things that we cannot do automatically through this online store, because the store does not have records of purchases that go back far enough.

You can compare the products by using their individual product descriptions. Checkmate is new, and runs read-only tests only when you are not using your Macintosh. TechTool Protogo is a way of making a bootable device that runs TechTool Pro (which is included) and allows you to add other applications.

I am pretty illiterate when using a computer but I know that Techtool pro works. Would you personally have a preference between the Protogo or Techtool Pro 6? You say V6 comes with Protogo?

TechTool Protogo comes with TechTool Pro 6. TechTool Pro 6 does not come with Protogo.

I suggest that you get TechTool Pro 6 tomorrow, by contacting the sales department.

You should read the TechTool Pro 6 manual before you use it. There have been some changes since version 4.
