Thread: Mac G3 DT questions

    I have IDE and SCSI devices but nothing Firewire for storage.
    If you can find a disk "toaster" like a NewerTech Voyager Q, you can just put a drive in there and connect it to the Mac over FW. I use a Voyager Q for backups.

    In order to startup from it, it will have to be Firewire. USB drives don't work as a startup drive.

    Found one on eBay and bought it; seller (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Newer-Techn...:rk:1:razz:f:0) has one left. Thanks.

    Found an ISO of DiskWarrior on Macintosh Garden. Thanks for the suggestion. And I'll go find another PRAM battery because that's the way my luck has been running lately: To quote the late, great Albert King, "If it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have no luck at all."

    If I may say to other considering doing the same thing: if your Mac supports it, please buy DiskWarrior. Alsoft still sells and supports it, and although v5 requires a Mac that can boot 10.5, they still support Power Macs.

    Mea culpa; I hadn't realized Alsoft still existed and still supported version 2.1, the version required to operate with OS 9.2 (which runs my machine). I concur in encouraging support of software authors and have contacted the Alsoft Technical Support Department, which Alsoft says will respond to my inquiry about licensing. I don't have a price at this point, in other words.

    Note that the current DW version 5 only supports later versions of OS X. There was / is a version 3 of Disk Warrior that reportedly can work with earlier versions of OS X but that is beyond the boundaries of my experience.

    I have v2 and v3. v3 is what I would recommend for Tiger-capable machines.
