Advice from an Apple Tech: How to get old Mac OS X install discs

Chris Barylick | March 6, 2014
If you troubleshoot Macs on a regular basis, sooner or later, you're going to need an old Mac OS X install CD or DVD. Only the truly organized will be able to locate that Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard DVD they last used two moves ago. For those of you looking to find a way to replace your old Mac OS X install discs, we'd like to offer the following suggestions.

Once your older Mac OS X CD or DVD is in your hand, set aside some time with Disk Utility and some blank CD-Rs, DVD-Rs, or, in the case of the Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard operating systems, dual layer DVD-Rs. These are your property now, they're yours to back up and there's always the chance that someone will be happy to buy your original disc somewhere down the road.
