DiskWarrior - A very useful disk repair tool
Authored by: ankh on Oct 18, '04 09:52:47PM

(With journaling, fsck gives false error reports you can ignore.)

I dunno. I've had problems where I did everything else, wasn't getting any error messages, WAS getting unexpected quits and crashes, ran Disk Warrior, it reported fixing problems, rebooted and the problems were indeed gone.

This is how superstitious behavior gets reinforced, I realize. But, somehow, I have gotten to feel like DW can do something the Mac standard tools aren't doing.

Whatever it is. I kind of think it actually creates a new directory, lets you compare it to the old one, and then and only then overwrites the old one. But, I'll leave answering _that_ to experts
