In this article we will show you how to disable the disk image checksum verification feature of MacOS. This feature allows you to see if a disk image's data has been corrupted. The checksum verification process can take a while, so in certain instances it may be beneficial to disable the checksum verification.
- Open a terminal and type the following command:
defaults write com.apple.frameworks.diskimages skip-verify -bool YES
- Disable this feature, only if you use disk image from trusted sources.
- You can re-enable this feature, using the below command:
defaults write com.apple.frameworks.diskimages skip-verify -bool NO
