This was over at MacFixIt:<br><br>DiskWarrior 3.0 is almost out, It was originally scheduled to be out almost a year ago, but solving Mac OS X-related problems proved to be more difficult than anticipated. As a point of contrast, it took Alsoft only 5 months to write the first version of DiskWarrior from scratch. It took one and a half years to upgrade it to Mac OS X! When making a disk repair utility, you can't afford to have a buggy first release. So you take however much time you need, which is what Alsoft did.<br>But Alsoft assures me that it is really almost out this time. In fact, they are selling a "sneak peek" version of it at the show. There are only a few speed issues that need to be addressed before its expected official release in February.<br>The new version runs native in OS X but can fix any volume, whether it contains Mac OS 9 (or earlier) or Mac OS X. The only restriction is that the boot volume must be running Mac OS X 10.2.1 or later.<br>The new version does essentially the same repairs as its OS 9 predecessor, which is to say it does a superb job of repairs. The major improvement is that it is much faster. For example, it can check a drive with 600,000 files in about 8 minutes. It also includes S.M.A.R.T disk checking (essentially duplicating the functionality of FWB's recently released SMART ToolKit)<br><br>
