Aw, crap!

Well... in my case I've used DiskWarrior exactly once to restore a corrupt volume. This is the only case like this that I've experienced in the past... I dunno... six years? Maybe longer. I haven't update Norton in years, probably not since the System 7 days.

Other than that one time (and that was a direct result of a bad beta of Quicken hosing my directory structure so badly that nothing else could fix it) I can't remember any real disk corruption.

During these past six years I've pretty much ran two or three macs in the house at all times (probably five different models over the years). At work I've been programming on macs for the past fifteen years using a variety of models and OS versions.

So, while I have DiskWarrior and update each time it comes out and recommend it to anyone asking about disk repair tools, the last time I actually used it was years ago. I consider it nothing more than insurance. And since I do contract programming from home as well, it's worth the extra peace of mind. ymmv
