10.2.6 & Error Messages that Disk Utility wont fix - 05/10/03 10:44 AM

I'm receiving Missing Thread Count and Invalid Volume File Count errors. Disk Utility and fsck can not fix them. I'm considering purchasing DiskWarrior to try and correct the situation so that I don't have to back all my data up, reinitialize, reinstall, upgrade all my programs, and re-enter all my preferences. Has anyone been successful treating these two errors?<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by tschick on 05/10/03 01:50 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

With the problems I'm having with the FireWire drive, I thought I'd make sure that everything was O.K. with Disk Utility (even though I'd run it just a few days ago and everything was fine). The errors turned up when I ran Disk Utility and when I fscked (or whatever the proper term is!).<br><br>Disk Utility and fsck say they are correcting the problem, but they keep showing back up in RED and making me puke.<br><br>

DiskWarrior will fix both of those errors. I wonder too whether the errors are associated with the firewire HD problem. Also, once you run DW and, I hope, it fixes the errors, then run fsck again, and when you reboot into your regular user, run the Disk Utility to repair permissions.<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

I don't have it yet. I was hoping to download it from their site, but I can't. It says allow a few weeks for delivery. :-( CompUSA carries them online, but they are out. I'm going to have to find it some other way. I guess I'll buy the latest version...is that DW3?<br><br>

The new version of DW is not quite out yet, but I think that they're no longer making the previous version, 2.1, available. That's tough <br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
