    Is there any way to change the volume indicator sound back to what it was from PB1/Mavericks?

    Go to System Preferences>Sound>Sound Effects, and check mark Play feedback when volume is changed.

    Read the MacWorld article pickaxe provided. It contains a detailed explanation.

    I hope they change it too for bootcamp in other ways that would be incoherent

    I googled "Yosemite Volume Sound" as I wanted to know how to switch the volume indicator sound back on. The first answer was exactly what I was looking for.

    The problem, you see, is that the OP was asking the wrong question :)

    You can just hold down Shift while tapping it and the sound will be there :p

    Until I turned it back on and realised it was different, that was my interpretation of "back to what it was"....

    Tried on 10.11.4 to sudo copy the old file
    '/System/Library/LoginPlugins/BezelServices.loginPlugin/Contents/Resources/volume.aiff'
    into a backup, but only get back this following the relevant command (with password given and pressing return):
    'sudo cp volume.aiff volume_backup.aiff'
    Result is:
    'cp: volume_backup.aiff: Operation not permitted'.

    Any clue? Are we disallowed to change anything now since SIP ? Or what else do I have to do?
