Not working with modern Apple OSX volumes

Post by CAD » Fri Dec 09, 2016 8:54 am

Hello,

I can't get R-Drive to work with Mac OSX El Capitan. It worked fine with 10.7 but I can't get it to Work with 10.11. After restoring a backup from the bootable media the apple OSX boots to the "No" symbol. When I check the drive from the Apple boot media it shows up as unformatted with no partitioning. I tested on two different fresh install Macbooks & 4 backups to be sure and it just doesn't work whether you restore as the default or RAW options. I'm not sure if this is a bug in the latest version of R-Drive or if R-Drive isn't compatible with modern OSX versions that contain Core storage volume management. It is really frustrating though because I just renewed my technician license for this purpose. I was really excited to try the new option of resizing HFS+ partitions.

Any help would be appreciated.

-Chris

Unfortunately, R-Drive Image doesn't support Core storage volume management right now. This is the problem.

Maybe, but not in the nearest future.
