DiskWarrior is the safest, the most technologically advanced, and the most powerful utility to eliminate directory damage available for any computer. DiskWarrior uses a different approach to disk directory repair than other programs. DiskWarrior is not a disk repair program in the conventional sense. Instead of patching the original directory, it uses a patent-pending technology to quickly build a new replacement directory using data recovered from the original directory, thereby recovering files and folders that you thought were lost and that no other program could recover. Monitors drive hardware for potential drive failure Verification of replacement directory ensures data integrity Comparison of original directory with replacement directory tells you which files and folders may have been affected by directory damage Patented preview feature to view what the disk will look like after the directory is rebuilt, allowing you to view files and folders before any directory changes are written to disk Repairs damaged boot blocks and blesses the system folder to ensure that the computer will start from the repaired disk Compaitble with OS X versions up to Snow Leopard Not Compatible with OS X Lion

Finally, there was Disk Warrior. After the 8 hour defrag, DW's 5 minute procedure was a bit of a surprise but a nice one. If I had to fault DW, like all these fix-up/clean-up programs, at some point you are presented with a list and told "examine these carefully to make sure you do not delete any vital items". Of course, if you knew what every item was, you wouldn't need the utility or even have the problem, but I digress. I accepted DW's new directory and the spinning ball, while not gone, was greatly diminished. From then on things just got better. I'm not sure of DW's role in this but over the next few days the spinning ball decreased and ultimately went away entirely! Was this all DW's work? We will never know. But when it came to fixing the problem it got the ball rolling, so to speak.
I heard about DiskWarrior but was apprehensive about making the investment. Most reports of my error code pointed at a completely corrupted hard drive but I had not completely lost hope. I wanted my pictures, music, and docs but two years would pass before I caved. I had attempted many other options just short of attempting a initialization of my proprietary OSX. In a last ditch effort I took the leap and wouldn't you know it, Disk Warrior came through! I highly recommend this product. I would have paid hundreds more, in my opinion this was a bargain and a sweet victory. After I recovered my data I wiped my hard drive and put a fresh install of my proprietary OSX and now my laptop works fine. I'll never know what I did to break it but now it's so old I have no use for it. I'm just glad I never gave up hope.
I came home, and it actually took me a few days to order Diskwarrior. It was the kind of procrastination that definitely stems from fear of failure. What if I spent $100 only to find out I needed to go spend more on a new hard drive? I read every review, and I decided it was definitely my best chance. After I received it I waited a month to try it. It was right before Christmas, and I just felt if it was really all going to be gone I didn't want to know that at Christmas time. So here it is, January 19, 2015, and I turned the computer on for the first time since November, plugged in the Diskwarrior disk, and in less than one hour everything is back to absolutely perfect.... I can't even believe it. Thank you, Jesus!!!!!!! Thank you, Diskwarrior!!!!! I hope this review helps someone, and I wish EVERYONE could experience the relief and gratitude I feel!!!! I will of course now be purchasing several "back up your computer" items both physical and cloud. Alleluia!!!!
This program never fails and from other reviewers online it looks like the programs works about 98% if the time. This program is a lifesaver.
I recommend it and not only that it is cheaper then getting someone else to try to the same work you can do yourself.
