Before doing the clean install of Mavericks, I would like to download it onto a USB flash drive. I read that the Mavericks file size is 5.3GB; my (blank) USB drive is 8GB (DiskUtility says it’s just under 8GB). However, when I try to copy it onto the drive, I’m told Mavericks needs 1.26GB more space. What am I doing wrong? Why does M require more than 9GB if it’s only 5.3GB? What can I do to make it fit?
