TOPIC: Can't create an edrive in Sierra

Can't create an edrive in Sierra 21 Sep 2016 20:08 #7576

I upgraded to Sierra this morning. I then deleted my existing El Capitan drive and tried to create a new one with Sierra. I can't. The message says "No MacOS Source Volumes were found."

Neither TechTool Pro 8 nor TechTool Pro 9.0.1 (the latest version released) is compatible with MacOS Sierra. Please see:

Status of TechTool Pro V9.0.1 and OS 10.12, Sierra Compatibility

The error message was correct, because an installation of MacOS Sierra is not an appropriate Mac OS Source Volume for TechTool Pro 9.0.1.

Are you going to make 8 compatible?

I doubt it, considering that months of work are required to make new version work with the new system software.

Hi MMT3, can you let us know how far back TTP9 will remain compatible for maintaining legacy OS installations.....I have several folks who are still perfectly happy to remain at the 10.5 level despite being orphaned for any further support from Apple.

As of today, I do not see any reason why the TechTool Pro 9 series would have any change in the older system software versions under which it will run or the hardware compatible with it. TechTool Pro 9 requires OS X 10.8 or newer.

There is an interesting MacInTouch discussion (still underway) of Apple's support of security updates for older OS versions.
