TechTool Protogo for Mac4.0.5

24 November 2014

Turn your USB or Firewire device into a bootable diagnostic toolkit.

What is TechTool Protogo for Mac

Note: TechTool Protogo is no longer a standalone product, but has been included in TechTool Pro.

TechTool Protogo easily lets you turn your USB or Firewire device into a bootable, diagnostics toolkit for Mac.

  • You can take it with you. Using Protogo, you can easily turn a USB or FireWire device, such as an iPod, flash drive, compact hard drive, or SD Card, into a powerful toolkit to troubleshoot all of the Macs in your life. Now you can boot, run diagnostics and perform drive repair on multiple Macs, both Intel and PPC, from a single, portable device as small as a flash drive. Just drop it into your pocket, take it anywhere. How convenient.
  • Plug and play redefined. Plug in a flash drive or retired iPod to help maintain or repair your Mac. With Protogo and just a few clicks, you can configure a bootable device to maintain and monitor your Macs for impending problems. You can create your own custom profiles too, and your device will run software faster than from a DVD. Once you see how well that works, you'll protect all your Macs with Protogo. It's that easy.
  • Powered by TechTool Pro. Your Protogo profiles include TechTool Pro to diagnose hardware issues, repair drives, fix disk permissions, clone volumes, backup your Recovery HD to another device, and a lot more. Plus you can add other utilities, like anti-virus, to complement your profiles and help you prevent costly repairs in the future. What's more, you can reconfigure your device profiles anytime you need. That's versatility.

TechTool Protogo is no longer a separate product – it's been folded into TechTool Pro 8.

I am constantly amazed by the trivial complaints on Macupdate. It's hard not to say something because believe in the companies that I purchase from. Interestingly, it seems that the more "techy" the product is, the more trivial the complaints get. Are you nerds familiar with the free trial concept? Would you buy a new car because it's on sale without test driving it? And then tell other car shoppers that it doesn't have the features you want and you wish you never bought it? Doesn't that seem kind of odd? Credit to @seedy for at least saying that it's not MM's fault. Now @bobbistyle here thinks TTP deserves a negative review because he thinks it's too expensive. I'm sorry bobbi, it must be hard to be taken advantage of like that. I guess TTP is a bad product because I wish it was cheaper, but I bought it anyway and I'm mad because I want a feature that it doesn't have. Well, I did come here to download the latest version of TTP so I'll be on my way. I've never had a problem with TTP. It's a great product and does some incredible data crunching for the price I paid. But I did actually get the free trial before I decided to buy it.

Since it's on sale for the same as TTP, for 25 bucks, I decided to try it. Observations before even using it: -Won't install on a partition so I can use the rest of a USB stick for something else. Have a 32GB one here, made a 10GB partition for it, but it won't see partitions, only devices, so I'm letting it chew up all 32GB to test it. This is one sign that it might not be meant for techs, who might want another bootable partition with a different OS and set of tools on the same drive. -If I try to add Disk Warrior to the app list, it crashes. :^) -The web page is pretty sparse on factual info, so it might be helpful to know that, once installed, TTP app is in its own folder separately for use, not only as part of Protogo. IOW, you get TTP 7 and the extra money (normally) for PTG is for the convenience of making a diagnostic disk.

No download links work, just takes you in a big circle. Even the developers page has a "Downloads" but nothing to download. Very stupid indeed.

Be aware that this version of TechTool Protogo does not include the latest TechTool Pro, wish is version 7.0.2 - a substantial upgrade to TechTool Pro 6.x. So you'll probably have to pay for an upgrade again when Protogo gets version 7.x.

The Software is great for the price I paid, some 39 Dollars. I have had the chance to use the software from work and took the opportunity to purchase it, as it's a great little addition to the First Aid kit, one of those software pieces, you know your going to need, not every day, but when you, need it, it's always useful. I think the ease of use is also worth the money, it's stable, and so far has never let me down, I also built, my own Crash USB Kit, with other pieces of software I might need, very handy. if you have a version of TechTools, the upgrade path for this software is also very good

Everything posted here is old and a disservice to readers. MacUpdate should post the new version information for Protogo 3.0, which includes TechTool Pro 6 ($99.99), thats why Protogo pricing is higher. Protogo upgrades are as low as $39.99.

Why would anyone pay $135 for this? I purchased a $25 micro USB hard drive and installed Leopard onto it with all my utilities. New Mac? No problem, just update to the latest OS. Micromat is nuts.
