A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: watcoh1 on Jun 03, '08 06:00:50PM

I have been having trouble with a disk on my iMac G5 (PowerPC) suddenly slowing to a crawl. DiskWarrior sat on it for six days and gave me nothing (with the "disk malfunction slowdown" message). I have tried all these solutions here, and have finally got to start up in single user mode. Using fsck -fy gives me an error on "Checking catalog file" of:
disk0s3: I/O error.
Invalid node structure
**Volume check failed.,
and will not get past that point.
I have been able to copy off most of my data files, but I wanted to know if there was any "next step" from here?
