DiskWarrior - A very useful disk repair tool
Authored by: blase on Oct 12, '04 12:47:20PM

DiskWarrior is excellent in all cases and should be the only thing you need to fix your problems. After reading a great article on fragmentation with HFS+ Drives, I threw out my other utilitys(Tech Tool Pro, Norton etc.) You DO NOT need to defrag an OS X volume with the same mentality as a windows user. "I NEED to get rid of my BAD Blocks!". It does not work the same way. All I use is DiskWarrior for optimization and for extreme cases of recovery, Data Rescue X. That is it! Well, and some sort of cron, permission, prebinding utility. But they are free. I roar the Warrior about once a month and it definately speeds up my drive. Don't believe the hype Norton and Tech Tool have ruptured my drive in the past. They try and fail to do too much that is not needed.
