A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: rickp2006 on Dec 03, '07 01:54:46PM

I tried the recommended fix before even reading other's comments, and it worked. It was like a dream come true, Disk Utility failed to repair the corrupt volume and data recovery tools weren't able to recover the directory structure and only part of the data.
The drive was an external Lacie drive that belonged to a non-technical friend who was devastated. He stood to loose much of ten years of research, simply because he didn't understand the concept of redundant backups. So my hat is off to the anonymous person who submitted the article, and anyone who added additional useful information related to "invalid sibling links" repair solutions for corrupt HFS partitions. ~RickP~
