hi fusion71au


you're sure it's a yosemite version?


I just tried it and it does not work


I patched the 10.9.5 version and it works fine

Hi fantomas,


The file is definitely from Yosemite 10.10.5 - see post#12.


Maybe it got corrupted since I uploaded this morning from USB drive off a Windows box (I'm at work at the moment :) ).  I'll check when I get home and upload from OSX.


EDIT:  Problem solved.  After you have downloaded and unzipped the file, you need to let root:wheel take ownership of the app ie

sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Downloads/Disk\ Utility.app

before the app will run.

yes, you"re right


I just checked... didn't do it before, sorry!


I found a 10.10.5 version and I just patched it and it works fine



Thx for Information
App works!


Thanks for work!

Excellent!! :)

thank you , that's the only thing i do not like about El Capitan that disk utility , i was waiting to see if this was posible , if someone comes with the idea to use Yosemite disk utility in El Capitan or maybe a third party app. but you did it , i will say from all the years i been in insanely mac , this is the best thing ever , i hate that Apple remove the raid gui from EC disk utility no full screen either , so i had an extra drive with Yosemite installed just to use Yosemite disk utility , thanks a millions times , now i like El Capitan 100% no regrets now , thank you

Thanks, very useful 

cd /Applications


sudo chown -R 0:0 Disk\ Utility.app 


to make it work from applications folder 

Works fine... Thank you.
