DiskWarrior - A very useful disk repair tool
Authored by: bryanzak on Oct 11, '04 02:01:37PM

Well, that's like asking what the difference is between KHTML and Gecko.

Sure, both fsck and DiskWarrior do the same thing, but they do it differently. They make different design decision regarding various issues, how aggressive to be, etc.

In my experience, I've had corruption that Disk Utility (which is just a pretty GUI built around fsck) could not fix -- and told me so in nice bold red text. Switch to DiskWarrior and a bit later the drive is once again healthy.

Second that. I don't know how or why, but I've had DW fix things after Disk Utility failed.
