Helps you to effortlessly and quickly create bootable drives with different macOS versions

DiskMaker X comes with a user-oriented interface and an intuitive built-in wizard that makes it easy for you to find the macOS install app and create a bootable install disk.

One of the first things you need to do once you launch DiskMaker X, is to select the version of macOS of which you want to make a boot disk of. DiskMaker X is capable to automatically find the macOS install packages with the help of Spotlight.

If the found macOS installation package is not the one you want to use for the bootable drive, you always have the option to use another copy and browse your Mac’s hard disk for the desired installer.

Carefully backup your data and prepare the targeted USB drive or disk volume

It is also worth mentioning that DiskMaker X will erase the entire content, including other volumes on the thumb drive you want to use as a bootable disk. Consequently, it is recommended to backup your data on another disk before initiating the building process.

However, if you decide to use another type of disk, DiskMaker X will only erase the selected volume, leaving other disks and volumes untouched.

Intuitive interface and smooth-running utility for all types of Mac users

DiskMaker X comes as an answer for Mac users that need a quick, simple and reliable way to create bootable USB drives and disk drives that can be used to install or reinstall the operating system on various Macs.

Moreover, we appreciated DiskMaker X's uncluttered interface with clear and easy to follow instructions that can be followed even by the most inexperienced Mac users.
