Where to find Disk Copy 6.5b11 or b13

GuyPaddock used Ask the Experts™
I need to mount an OS X backup image (DMG) under OS 9, but only Disk Copy 6.5 is rumoured to support the format under OS 9. Can someone PLEASE tell me where I can easily download it? I've tried Hotline but all the servers that have it also have very long queues and other problems which aren't allowing me to get it; can't find it anywhere else.

Legally? No. 6.5 hasn't been officially released and is under copyright. Mounting an OS X backup image in OS 9 isnt a good idea anyway since OS 9 is likely to strip the chunks that OS X needs in order to boot.
did you try  registering at Apple's Developer Connection? <http://developer.apple.com> This will give you access to some pre-release development software, which may include the software you are looking for.

Where did you get info on Disk Copy 6.5? is this an OS 9 or an OS X app? If OS 9, it's likely you'll never see it, as development on that OS has been stopped.

Have you also tried here: <http://www.versiontracker.com/mp/new_search.m?productDB=mac&mode=Quick&OS_Filter=MacOS&search=dmg&x=21&y=12>
rumoured is the key word.. i have dl it as you and try it to mont dmg, no luck

try toast 5 (maybe) to mont the image (does not work for me)

Get a friend that have os x, open it , copy it to a cd and use it on os 9, THAT work for me !

hope better luck !

Found it on Google News search, but still won't mount properly... grr. I'm awarding it to pike480 for coming closest; I found it on the developer site too. Thanks, guys, for giving it a shot!

How can I backup a mac os 9 hard drive. I need to copy one hard drive to another and then replace the original hard drive with the copy. How does one do this?

Also on an imac G3 slot loader, can I just use a regular ide hard drive, one that would also work in a pc, or do macs require a specific type of hard drive. Also how about the ram. Can I use pc 100 ram that works in a pc box or is that mac ram?

ask a new quesiton, gharnett
