How to repair damaged disks that crash Disk Utility and DiskWarrior
Authored by: hez on Jun 23, '13 10:27:04AM

I have used this in the past to recover and access disks that Disk Warrior never could do. if Disk Warrior crashed or hung, that I knew that it would take sometime more to work on the disk, somehow being able to "skip" the bad blocks, etc so that even other utilities like Disk Warrior Techtool, etc could gain access and make the disk stable enough to recover any data and then trash it, etc.
this has always been a last resort and has almost always worked, except in extreme cases. I was happy to see this tip posted here and hope that it will others when trouble arises.
