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.

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.
