would anyone have any suggestion what to do? I am running DiskWarrior for the last two years.
Now I upgraded to 10.5.6 and run the latest version of DiskWarrior 4.1.1.
the program works itself up to Step 8 in the "Rebuilding Directory" window and than it stops while it says "scanning disk one moment please and then a window comes up and asks me to "Shut down my computer, holding down the start button for a few seconds.
An HFSJ mac HD crashed from another mac. I connected it externally, via USB, to a working macbook pro and installed diskwarrior on the working macbook pro's hard drive.
I started diskwarrior from the OS (I didn't boot using the disc) and it ran for a few days, trying to rebuild the directory for the crashed mac HD.
It concluded that the crashed mac HD was mechanically failing and could not replace the original directory with the rebuilt directory and, therefore, it could not display an original and preview pane, side-by-side.
It was, however, able to offer just the preview of the rebuilt directory and advised that I copy the data off to another storage device, which I am attempting to do now.
The problem is the preview directory is locked and read-only.
When I attempt to copy files over to another storage device, OS X, with respect to the preview directory, indicates that "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items.
I clicked on get info for the preview directory and the permissions are grayed out. There is a checkmark for the "Ignore ownership of this volume" checkbox. For my username, it says read and write, and I am the sole user on this machine.
it also has "staff" and "everyone" as usernames, where "staff" is read & write and "everyone" is read only. The lock is locked and, like the rest of this section, grayed out and cannot be changed.
I realize that DiskWarrior automatically locks the preview of the rebuilt directory. But how am I supposed to copy files to a different storage device if I can't change permissions?
Edit: I should mention it is DiskWarrior 4.2 and Mac OS X 10.5.8. The crashed Mac HD I am unsure, but I found a user guide on it for Tiger. So, it is probably 10.4.x
I got this error from Diskwarrior and am wondering what the deal is? Here are the details:
My 80GB hard drive crashed and burned on my Macbook Pro Dual 1.83 running 10.5.8. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the drive before it went totally kaput and then cloned it back onto a new drive that I installed into the MBP.
Upon running Diskwarrior 3.3 on the new clone in the MBP to look at permissions, I got error -9997. Do you know what that error indicates?
Googling it tells me that, if you get that error in 10.3 or 10.4 via Disk Utility (not DW) then you are missing a basesystem.pkg file. See: [URL]
Looking back on the original clone, this file doesn't exist where the KB thread says it should so I'm assuming 10.5.8 doesn't use the same file in the same place.
I ran disk utility on the drive to look at permissions and other than a few corrected permissions, it didn't say there were any other errors.
So, which do I trus, disk utility or DW? Is this just a disconnect between the old DW 3.3 and 10.5.8 (I mean the old DW not reading 10.5 correctly for some reason) ?
Or do I need to do a clean install from the systems disk (something I really don't want to do if possible)?
Trying to boot up my MBP 10.6.8 with an updated DiskWarrior disk. Holding down "c" got me nowhere. Holding down "options" gets me to the screen showing the Mac HD and DiskWarrior DVD(which I just made, updated from the older DW 4.0). After choosing the DW, the computer just sits there. Is there a known problem with late-model MB Pros and DiskWarrior?
My girlfriend was using her Macbook Pro as usually when the Safari browser froze. She used the power buttom to turn it off and when she turned it back on her discs were gone. Now it was only possible to log in on the recovery-10.9.3.
So I used the disk utility, which showed that her partitions under a new names (Toshiba 750 Gb something). I ran the verify Disk and repair disk tools, which told me that there was a "Invalid B-tree Node size error" or something. There's is some importatnt files on the her hard disk (and of cause no backup) so I didn't dare to erase it completely. So I read about it and figured that I needed to run the Diskwarrior software.
Diskwarrior couldn't find the right disk, but it found a disk called "customer" which we ran the software on. After this the disk changed name to "untitled" and the disk utility no longer found any problems, so I went home because I though I only had to setup the system again. I reinstalled the OS, but now there is only a user called "Other..." that needs a Name and a Password (neither of which we can figure out).
I cant boot the su (CMD -S) directly from startup. I can boot from the Recovery partition, but I can't run the "sudo" command from the terminal window found in there.
I want to run Diskwarrior for directory repair either for maintenance, or after a hard crash – on my 2011 MacBook Pro. Diskwarrior falls out of date everytime Apple updates the OS. I'm currently running Lion. I downloaded the free updater to 4.4, (I have a 4.2) but it still does not boot my mac.I (sort of) solved the problem by installing a full-blown Lion OS on an external firewire hard-drive, booting from it and then running Diskwarrior. Older versions of DW will do directory repair, they just aren't bootable if out of date.What I want to do is to boot from a Flash drive, and then run Diskwarrior.I have created a bootable flash drive, which works, but boots into the Mac OS X Utilities window (the same window you get when you boot into Recovery mode. Even though I'm booted from the flash drive, this window does not let me access Diskwarrior.I also have a 2T Time Capsule attached, can I put a copies of Lion and Diskwarrior on that to solve the problem?

I have been working on a project in iMovie for a few days, and it has been working perfectly. Today, I opened up my project and I could not play the project (the red line would move, but no picture would show up in the upper right hand corner box) and ALL of the options in the "share" tab were gray and unable to click them. Many options in the "edit" and "file" tabs were unable to be clicked as well.
Another project i completed months ago is working perfectly. The clips in the events play/show up on the window in the upper right hand corner
notice the studdery video and scrolling in firefox? I searched on google a while back and found a thread that said it was firefox saving the tabs every 5 seconds that caused the lag. So I set firefox to save them every 5mins or something and that worked for a while but now the problem has returned.
I need help with Multiclutch. How can I find out what the keyboard commands are for things I want to do? I know that some of them show up in the menus at the top, but not everything does, or at least I am not seeing it.
The one I am specifically looking for right now is switching between tabs in Firefox. What key combo would I use for that? Another one I am looking for is undo close tab.
Are there any other key combos you can think of that might not be obvious, but might be something someone would want to know about?
Background: A day or two after plugging a USB that had been plugged into a virus ridden PC into my Mac, the internet went berserk. My father told me that he thought it was the USB that had messed the internet up. A few days later, he said that the USB was fine, it was just that Apple came out with a Security Update that changed our router access password (we cannot access our own internet because our password was being changed by a "Security Update"). So, in a kind effort to provide internet for me, he went into my Account Settings and changed my permissions so I was able to access the Application "Internet Connect". Well, I was able to run the application and connect to our internet, but I couldn't launch any applications that didn't either: a.)Come with the machine or b.)Need the administrator password to install.
The Problem: I cannot launch any applications that didn't need the administrator password or come with the system. I AM able to run Apps such as iChat, iTunes, Ventrilo(required administrator password) and Quicktime. I AM NOT able to run any of the games that I have downloaded, teamspeak, transmission, teamviewer, or any .dmg file. After two weeks of looking for possible causes and trying everything in our power, my dad and I can't find the cause of this. He has taken off all parental control and given me control of everything on my account, but still I can't launch anything.
I'm using Transmission 1.75, Leopard 10.5.8, BT Home Hub with UPnP enabled and I've tested that it's working (my PS3 had no problems getting online and playing games).
I'm having trouble seeding. It seems that people aren't able to see/connect to my computer. I've set my firewall to allow connections to Transmission (I've also tried using other clients), I've set my router and Transmission to UPnP, I've also tried using a static IP but that knocked me offline, I've tried port forwarding but that didn't work either. I'm not sure what else to try. Has anyone had a similar problem, if so how did you fix it?
New Macbook Pro owner.Been using PCs for years.Along with this I have a 10 year old MSN Messenger account.I see Mac for Messenger automatically came with the Mac or Leopard.
In any event I have, over the past 3 days, tried signing into to my MSN Messenger numerous times and each time am told my password or user name is incorrect althogh I have double checked and triple checked many times.So it wont let me on BUT I can sign into Windows Live using the same password.ID info.
I have taken down my firewall, put it back up, thinking maybe that was the problem to no avail.
I have even changed my password twice waiting up to 24 hours to try again and just now for the 5th day in a row it tells me it is wrong when it ISNT. I really do need to get online with it now after being off for several days with this.I just checked yet again and see now that I still cannot log on but can on the web in Windows Live alhtough I sign out of that so it wont interfere.
I AM STUMPED and no longer know what to do next short of just getting a whole new identity but I have used this for 10 years with no problem up until now so a name/password change but I would rather not have to get a new one but just want to be able to log on to Mac Messenger ASAP.
just found Geektool and it's great. It's so useful, however i found that i cannot use Camouflage with it. Is there other way to do it? Or perhaps is there a way to double click the destop to open a finder window? Either are good solutions for me.
I tried to install Aperture, after I have done a complete uninstall, but the install process does not go any further than hitting the ok button after entering Name/Company/Serial. The rainbow colored circle remains on forever, so I have to force quit every time.
I wonder, if I deleted any important install files form OSX accidently?
What I did was uninstalling Aperture: I searched for 'Aperture' in the Finder window, and deleted all files which showed up!
