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.

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

thank you thank you!

Thank you a thousand times, I haven't been here for long, since I'm using a real mac, but, in need of help, I came back and I've found it!

1 question... is it safe to use repair permissions from the older version or dose not matter?

Verify/Repair permissions won't be possible with DU in El Capitan (even using the old version) - the option will be greyed out.

Great tool and thanks so much for sharing.  How can I get the debug menu to appear so I can show all partitions?  The terminal command in the past was defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility DUDebugMenuEnabled 1.  Maybe cannot be done?

 

Edited:

 

​Sorry I did not read carefully enough. I have to run the command(s) wherever the app resides.  :)

Sorry but it is not working here ~

 

10.11.1 on Skylake Hackintosh iMac 17,1 SMBIOS and it will not open - just bounces endlessly in the Dock. I have run the chmod command on the app. Here is the console output after opening the app

The command to use is sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Downloads/Disk\ Utility.app, not chmod.....
