A DIY solution to an invalid node structure problem
Authored by: railpass on Sep 05, '08 01:36:06PM

If you're wondering what to put in for "partition" here:

/sbin/fsck_hfs -ypr /dev/partition

Just run:

diskutil list
or
disktool -l

9 times out of 10 it will be "/sbin/fsck_hfs -ypr /dev/disk0s2", but double check your set up.

Might not work if you've booted up into single user mode. If that's the case, but up from Leopard OS X disk, then run Terminal. Worked for me.

A DIY solution to an invalid node structure problem

You and all y'alls are a lifesaver! I wasn't sure what the "disk#s#" reference was to my poor firewire backup drive that had thrown a node error. I like having the incremental backups, but it wasn't worth the $99 for DW. If i couldn't find a fix I could always have just wiped the drive and made a brand new backup. Anyway, a little time and effort this evening is all it cost me to correct the problem. Thanks!
