DiskWarrior - A very useful disk repair tool
Authored by: Pontifax on Oct 12, '04 11:43:49AM

Well, yeah it's great but not perfect. It really messed up my Cube, which also has OS9 installed (one partition for both OSs). After "fixing" the drive my wife own every file, except the ones in my home directory.
The wifes ownership included ALL system files, OS9 and X alike. (On my old trusty iBook nothing unexpected happened.)

DiskWarrior - A very useful disk repair tool

That permissions error was likely part of the voodoo that women can often wield over us and our computers. ;-)

Seriously, when one has an undesired result after using DiskWarrior to repair directory problems (especially those that fsck cannot repair) one has to wonder how much of those undesired results are due to the magnitude of the original directory damage and how much are due to DiskWarrior.

[I'm not intending to put words into your mouth...I know you did not say that you were using DiskWarrior to repair disk corruption or whether fsck had been used or not. Apologies if it seems that I am.]
