TOPIC: Installing ProtoGo on one partition of a 4-partition thumb drive?

Installing ProtoGo on one partition of a 4-partition thumb drive? 29 Oct 2015 14:33 #6777

I want to install ProtoGo on a single partition of a 32Gb thumb drive divided by Disk Utility into 4x8GB (GUID) partitions. However the Device pane shows the thumb drive as a single 32Gb entity and ignores the partitions. Is there any way around this?

No, because Protogo creates a device, not a volume. The entire device is erased and a single Mac OS Extended (journaled) volume is created.

From page 7.6 of the TechTool Pro 8 manual:

WARNING Be sure that any important data on the device is backed up before choosing Build TechTool Protogo Device, since the entire device, including all volumes currently on it, will be completely erased. Any data on the device will be lost.
