SubRosaSoft is pleased to announce DasBoot – a new addition to their
line of freeware utilities for Mac OS X computers.

February 7, 2007 – Do you have a shiny new iPod in your pocket? Or
perhaps a flash drive or small portable hard drive? Now you can turn
it into a Mac OS X diagnostic, repair, and maintenance tool. DasBoot
allows you to take any third party boot CD (such as those shipped by Inc, Prosoft Engineering Inc, Alsoft Inc, or Micromat
Inc) and quickly create a bootable diagnostic device that contains
any of your own utilities you may wish to install.

You can use your iPod to boot and repair Mac OS X computers* without
erasing it and taking away your ability to play music. With the help
of DasBoot you get to carry all the tools you’ll need with you. But
unlike expensive third party alternatives, you’ll have plenty of
space left over in case you need to recover data.

DasBoot devices run software much faster than a CD/DVD repair disk.
In addition you can re-configure the device at any time to add new
utilities, updated versions of software or newer versions of Mac OS X.

SubRosaSoft DasBoot helps you build a pocket-sized toolkit for your
Mac – just the way you want it – and it’s totally free !! Just plug
it in and all your tools will be at your fingertips.

DasBoot has been tested with the following disk utilities and data
recovery tools, but will also run many others; CopyCatX, FileSalvage,
MacForensicsLab, VolumeWorks, Drive Genius, Data Rescue II,
DiskWarrior, TechTool Pro

* Note – Users of DasBoot must have purchased licenses to install the
various disk utilities, and own an appropriate disk utility bootable
CD/DVD to use as the source disk. Users who wish to have a
forensically sound bootable device should use MacForensicsLab as
their source disk.

DasBoot is free to download, and may be freely distributed.
