Create a USB installer for OS X with DiskMaker

Lion was the first version of OS X to be made available in the App Store, and it made sense that subsequent OS X releases would follow suit. While this method of software distribution is handy, it does mean having to have access to the internet and this is not always an option. Thankfully, it is possible to create a bootable USB driver installer for the OS.

There are numerous advantages to going down this route. If you have more than one computer on which you would like to install the operating system there is no need to wait for ages while the software is downloaded multiple times, and it also means that you can avoid exceeding any monthly download limited your ISP may have put in place.

It is possible to create your USB installer using OS X’s built in Disk Utility, but DiskMaker is, as the name implies, a handy tool that helps to automate and simplify the process. All that you need to have to hand is an 8GB drive that you don’t mind formatting and the software will take care of the rest for you.

To save you from having to download OS X more than once, it is important that you run this tool immediately after you have downloaded the IS from the App Store – do not wait until after you have perform the upgrade or the installer will be deleted.

The latest v4 now supports (OS X 10.10) Yosemite

Verdict:

A great utility if you have more than one Mac to update or just want to ensure you have a backup OS X installer for offline use.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
