Screencast 17 – Magic Install Disk

hard-drive-icon.jpg

During Mac Power Users episode 6, I talked about my Magic install disk. I’ve had lots of inquiries about exactly how I did it so here it is. This episode demonstrates how to create an external drive with all of your application installations using the built in OS X Disk Utility application and Noodlesoft.com’s Hazel. Enjoy.

By the way, an amazing thing is happening over on iTunes. I’m starting to get comments and ratings. Thanks everyone for taking the time. If you haven’t yet, please do so. These screencasts are quite a bit of work and I’d like to see them get a bit wider distribution. Ratings and comments help that. Thanks.

    This is great – thanks!

    A quick question: I did a few of these already, but I chose compressed instead of read only – what will that do? I know it is working (I pulled one of my images up and was able to install something from it), but is there an issue with not selecting read only? I’ll do that from now on, but I’m wondering if I should go back and redo the ones I did already?
