DiskWarrior - A very useful disk repair tool
Authored by: Legionary13 on Oct 11, '04 02:02:18PM

From my experience, DW fixes problems that fsck does not. I used to run fsck from console mode periodically, hence the direct comparison. Since Panther, with journalling turned on, fsck reports that it's no longer necessary.

There certainly are utilities that aqua-fy simple command-line tools but DiskWarrior is not one of them. The user manual - cannot find a link on the Alsoft site - explains how DW works, and it is no way comparable with journaling - it's more radical.
