Making Data Discs : Making a Mac Only Disc
Making a Mac Only Disc
This type of disc can contain any files or folders and can only be used on a Macintosh computer. It supports features such as data spanning, compression, encryption, custom icons, and backgrounds. This is the best choice for saving your data, provided that you will not need to access the contents of this disc on a Windows computer.
