DiskWarrior - A very useful disk repair tool
Authored by: leejoramo on Oct 11, '04 04:57:25PM

I have used DiskWarrior for 7 or 8 years. It is often fixed problems when Apple Disk Utility, Norton, TechTools or even single user mode fsck reported the drive as being unsalvageable. What is the difference between fsck and DiskWarrior? I don't really know. As others have said, Apple's Disk Utility is a wrapper around fsck. (And it does a lot of other stuff too.)

I remember reading that the developers of DW use to work for Apple in the development of HFS. They took this deep knowledge of the file system and created a tool that has saved me and my clients many times.

single user mode fsck may fix everything that you ever face. But just remember, that if you ever run into a situation that fsck doesn't do the job, DW will likely be a good investment.
