A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: patm on Mar 05, '09 09:08:30PM

This worked for me.
My mac would not get past the grey apple background after I had installed Applejack 1.5. It would just shut down. Using applejack was no help and thinking that it might be the cause, I uninstalled it. Still no luck.
So i found this thread and went thru Terminal using fsck_hfs -r/dev etc, and this worked. I ran it twice just to be sure. I couldn't copy the text from the Terminal window unfortunately. I've saved myself the cost of DiskWarrior (though I will be buying it when I've got the $$).
Thank you to the original poster!!!
