I have DiskWarrior installed on my iMac; I've lost the original installation disc. Is there some way to do a disk image (or something else) to make a bootable DVD of my installed DiscWarrior? Every now and again I get a message that I need to boot from the install disc to do a task and without the disc ... oh well.

 

Any help will be most appreciated!

    You need the disc to update DW, so I suggest requesting a replacement from Alsoft. Alternatively, just clone your current volume to another volume or ext HD volume, boot with it and run DW from there on the internal HD. That's what i do. BTW, producing a bootable DVD including DW isn't a simple exercise, so I wouldn't bother.

    I don't use TM, so I'm not sure how much disk space is needed on that volume to properly run DW. Try doing it from the SD! volume.
