    I have installed the macOS Mojave public beta and want to grab a copy of the newest beta version for a backup usb drive. I used the Mac App Store link from Apple's public beta page which opens the Mojave page in the new App Store. The download however only opens a small downloader program which directly installs the os rather than downloading the os image. Is there a way to force the App Store to download the full 4.9 GB file?

    I might have an answer if you have the problem that I did above. I went back to the public beta page, and installed the Public Beta Access Utility which seems to be forcing a download (5.67 GB) in Software Update.

    Download a copy of macOS Mojave Patcher. Run it and under the Tools menu you can download the latest release of Mojave.
