DropDMG 3.5

July 24th, 2017 (DropDMG)

Version 3.5 of DropDMG is now available. This is a free update for owners of DropDMG 3.0 that includes the following enhancements:

  • The Create macOS Install Disk command can now create a bootable install disk on a hard drive, USB stick, SD card, or disk image. This makes it easy to create test macOS installations from downloaded installers, reinstall the OS, repair your Mac’s drive, or restore from a backup. (Previously, the Create macOS Install Disk command handled burning OS installers to DVD.)
  • Disk image layouts now support the 96×96 icon size.
  • DropDMG is now compatible with beta versions of macOS 10.13 High Sierra. In particular, there were a bunch of changes to APFS that prevented previous versions of DropDMG from working properly.
  • Made some changes to the New Blank Disk Image… interface and documentation to reflect the current status of APFS.
  • Worked around some bugs in macOS 10.13 that could cause errors when creating a disk image with a layout. It is possible that the window’s status bar and toolbar will not be correctly hidden, but at least now you can create images.
  • Added the How can I back up my DropDMG data? section of the manual.
  • Made various improvements to the diagnostic reporter.

DropDMG 3.5 works with macOS 10.6.8 through 10.13. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of DropDMG, please see the version history.
