Guides on emulating older applications

Norton's last utilities suite for the classic Mac OS. Version 1.0.1.

Norton SystemWorks for Macintosh includes:

- Norton Utilities for Macintosh 6.0, along with the 6.0.3 Updater
- Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh 7.0, along with NAV 7.0.2 Virus Definitions Update
- LiveUpdate™ 1.6
- Dantz Retrospect® Express v4.3
- Aladdin Spring Cleaning™ v3.5.

Principal benefits of Norton Utilities are disk repair, optimization and data recovery. New features of v6.0 include the ability to scavenge and rebuild directories for improved data recovery and custom Speed Disk™ optimization profiles that allow users to arrange data on their drive to suit their specific needs.

Norton AntiVirus protects users by scanning at all points of entry and updating virus protection via the Internet. New features for v7.0 include email scanning, which will automatically scan for viruses and perform repairs as needed, and simplified preferences that will allow users to quickly set up the product to the level of automatic protection they require - minimal, standard, full or no automatic protection.

Customers will be able to use Norton Utilities for Macintosh and Norton Antivirus for Macintosh to analyze and repair problems on Mac® OS 8.1 and above and Mac OS X Public Beta disks when running from the Mac OS 9 partition or bootable CD.

Aladdin Spring Cleaning™ frees up space on users' hard drives by safely and completely uninstalling old programs and their related files-without deleting anything the user needs. Spring Cleaning allows users to get rid of outdated applications, extensions, preferences, fonts, aliases and other files. It also allows users to remove the clutter left over from Internet sessions, including cache files, cookies and history logs.

Dantz Retrospect® Express lets users copy files quickly and easily to a wide range of removable media, including CD-R, CD-R/RW, Zip®, Jaz®, SuperDisk®, magneto-optical, and DVD devices. Users may also back up to a secure site over the Internet. The EasyScript wizard allows users to schedule automatic, unattended backups.

Architecture: PPC

Norton SystemWorks for Macintosh requires a PowerPC processor, Mac OS 8.1 or higher, must boot from Mac OS 9 to repair Mac OS X Public Beta disks, 24MB of RAM, 20MB hard disk space for Norton AntiVirus and Norton Utilities, 10MB hard disk space for Aladdin Spring Cleaning, 30MB hard disk space for Dantz Retrospect Express, 10% of disk space available recommended for Speed Disk, CD-ROM drive, and an Internet connection (for LiveUpdate functionality).

Also, later versions like Norton Systemworks 2.0 included Diskwarrior Express.

Later versions of SystemWorks just had this version included on the disc for use with OS 9.

Here's all I've used for years with OSX, on a drive that has seen it's share of being tested through video production (and I've never had a major issue):

For maintenance, monitoring, and recovery:

- OnyX
- DiskWarrior
- SMARTReporter
- AppleJack

I just can't praise OnyX and DiskWarrior enough. They are "must have" utilities for OSX.

Norton Utilities has not only acquired a bad reputation with OSX, but even an earlier version in Classic was detrimental (I think it was the version just prior to 3.5).

If you have problems with OS X (and they do happen) ... better to use Disk Warrior or Drive Genius.

I agree with you, Balrog. I would never even try it on OS X.

That, and OS X just doesn't have problems like that. Ever. Smile

Do not EVER use Norton Utilities on an OS X disk. It will cause severe damage.

"Norton's last utilities suite for the classic Mac OS. Version 1.0.1."

Actually, not so. I just checked my CD book, and I found Norton SystemWorks 3.0. The disc is dated 2004, and has both OS 9 and OS X partitions, capable of booting the computer under 9.2 or 10.3.2, respectively.
It contains v6.0.5 of all the utilities, and v7.0.2 of AntiVirus for OS 9. I can't determine what version the OS X Utilities are.

I'll image this one and upload it here when I get a chance in the next couple days.

How about creating a torrent for this file?
