DiskWarrior is far superior to Norton Disk Doctor for hard drive repair.

At this time, there is no need for a virus checker in OS X unless you are running MS Office.

Does anybody know some other software that can replace Norton Speed Disk?
Ok, I am not going to use NSW anymore but I am going to miss Speed Disk for disk defragmentation.
Having journaling enabled on Panther doesn't keep files defragmented, does it?

Panther automatically defrag files under 20MB.

Moreover, it does not suffer (as well as other Unix systems) measurably from fragmentation. It is not OS 9.
