Advice from an Apple Tech: BitTorrent and older OS X installation discs, revisited

Chris Barylick | March 24, 2014
In the wake of my latest Advice from an Apple Tech article that focused on the use of BitTorrent to acquire older OS X installation disc images when the required OS X installation disc was unavailable, some points of clarification need to be made.

Finally, the technique for acquiring an installation disc was not the best, most legal, most secure or most ethical solution, nor should it be common practice. But in situations where a deadline is about to expire, a system using an older version of OS X needs to be brought back to life or data needs to be recovered, this may be the one of the few remaining options available.
