OS X :: Disk Warrior Unable To Replace Startup Disk / Connect To TC To Transfer Across DW's Preview

Feb 18, 2009

Yesterday I switched on my macbook (Leopard) and got the flashing question mark. Ran all the resets and booted with disk utility which encountered an 'Invalid B-tree Node' when attempting to repair the disk. Additionally, the SMART status was verified.

I ran DW 4 last night, and performed the hardware tests which reported that the disk was operating like normal. The majority of my media files and additional work is backed up to my Time Capsule but I still have a folder of papers that are relatively new, and wanted to retrieve. While DW managed to reconstruct the majority of my drive (there seemed to be 15g missing - but it's just music files) including this folder, it couldn't replace the disk, as it encountered 'Serious Disk Malfunctions'.

So, via the Disk Preview I want to transfer my saved folders to my TC, but I don't appear to be able to locate it (via ethernet) through DW - even if it's connected when I boot up in DW. So, first request is: Can I connect to my TC to transfer across in DW's preview?

Second is: What are my options if DW can't replace? Do I need to take it into Apple and get a new HD (it's out of warranty)? It's possibly worth noting that I'm a student and have absolutely no money - so cost effective options are a bonus!

OS X :: Unable;e To Boot From Internal Hard Drive / Use Disk Warrior To Repair Disk?

Apr 11, 2010

I am considering purchasing diskwarrior but want to make sure it can help my situation before I purchase it. My imac will not boot from the internal hard drive (Intel processor) When I use disk utility to try and repair the disk, I get error messages and it won't repair. I can see the HD but cannot repair it. When I connect using target mode with my mac book pro, the hard drive does not appear on my host (macbook pro) computer. I have reloaded OS X (Leopard) onto a firewire external drive and can boot my imac that way but I can not find my original internal Macintosh HD. Will disk warrior be able to help with this scenario. I would really like to access that internal Macintosh HD and retrieve my files.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Recover Files From Disk-warrior?

Apr 14, 2012

Laptop:  MacBook (White), 10.6
External: Lion 10.7.6 

Booting from an external drive and running DW4 on MAC OS 10.7. Trying to recover from preview pane as my internal drive will not rebuild. The folders on the internal MacHD are visible in the preview but have "minus" on them and I will not copy. It is showing it has zero bytes and when I click on the copy from the preview pane I get a message that says the operation cannot be completed because I have insufficient privilages. My ultimate goal is to get out the home folder for the user and migrate the the user files to a new MacBook Pro.

Software :: Unable To Repair Hd / Disk Warrior Rebuild Tool Is Grayed Out

Feb 1, 2009

last week my mac (1 year old iMc, 2.4ghz intel chip, 4gb ram, system 10.5.7) went all funny, everything was working slowly - so I restarted, same thing, I restarted again and it just went to the grey screen with the spinning ball.Ok so I restarted from my tiger disk and it could see the drive, so I tried to install a new system and it got right to the end of the installation then said because of a disk error it couldn't do it.

Ok so I bought an external HD, put a system on and started up from there - now the drive came up, but things were slow still, it took forever to copy anything so I tried disk utility, it couldn't repair it. I tried drive genius, same thing. DiskWarrior 4.1.1 same thing.

Now I tried again a few times and the programmes took forever to start up but now disk utility opens after about 30 mins and can see the drive, but it's lost it's name and I can't even repair or repair disk permisssions. Drive Genius can see it but not repair and same for Disk Warrior, the 'rebuild' tool is greyed out.

It's a 500GB drive and only has 3GB spare on it, it has loads and loasds of stuff on there, work, music, films, all my preferences, passwords and of course all my software - I do have a backup of some stuff, my photos luckily enough - but I still need to get it fixed.

Now what can I do? Is there anything in terminal I can do? Any other ideas anyone? I'm desperate for help.I have downloaded Data Rescue II and it has been gathering device information for an hour, I'm hoping it will carry on and later on I can start recovering. But in all honestly is there anyway of fixing the drive?And if not can I recover and then do I need to re-format? And if so will it work ok once formatted?Also any ideas why this would have happened?

Software :: Can't Eject A Bootable Disk Warrior CD?

Feb 15, 2009

I recently used DiskWarrior 4.1 (with Tiger) to check the disk of a Leopard Intel IMac.

All went well, but when I tried to restart and eject the Disk Warrior CD (by holding down the mouse button), the CD would not eject, the Mac restarted with Disk Warrior as the start-up volume.

It seems like it thinks the CD is the start-up disk. I tried the eject button too (at start-up).

I tied resetting the SMC with unplugging the power and cables, no luck either.

Also tried to reset PRAM (several times), but no luck.

Software :: Disk Warrior Stuck On Locating Directory Data

Jan 10, 2009

If I make a mistake and I can't open OS X. In windows I think you can start in safe mode and undo the mistake? I was installing UBUNTU on an external disk, but for some reason my original OS X is not working and was affected. Disc Utility can see the disk, repair permissions and check hard drive ok. But I can still not boot from it. Now I try DiskWarrior but for the last 15 min it has been stuck on "Locating directory data" so I guess some thing is wrong. I did not try any other apps, for fixing broken hard drives yet. If Disk Warrior don't work I will try TechTool and Genius. Then it's no more options then to reinstall.

MacBook Pro :: Disk Warrior Didn't Work For Data Recovery

Jun 11, 2012

My hard drive decided to quit after only 22 months! Some files were backed up but my current photo albums were not. That's all I really need, I don't care about all the other junk. I've tried booting from the Disk Warrior cd, which Apple Genuis Bar suggested since they don't do data recovery.

So it there another way I can do this myself or should I just bring it to Fry's for $149?  

Another question would be, after I recover the files, I'd like to upgrade my MacBook Pro 13 to a Solid State drive. I know I need a 2.5" SATA, but which brand/size is good for a $200-$300 budget?

Intel Mac :: Disk Warrior Reported A Damaged Resource Header That Cannot Be Repaired?

Jul 2, 2012

Disk Warrior reported a damaged resource header that cannot be repaired. The resource header is in an "older" file format (rsrc). I have been having fairly frequent freezes of the system and Disk Utility reporting a corrupted HD which Disk Unility is always able to repair and report the HD to be O.K. Could the damaged header be the cause of the freezes?  If so, can anything be done about it if Warrior says it cannot be repaired?

MacBook Pro :: Folder With Question Mark At Startup - Disk 0 Showing In Disk Utility

Jun 24, 2014

I get this question mark along with a folder when starting up. I tried holding down the option key when turning on the power and then I get an internet recovery along with a globe. I click on the arrow below it and it takes maybe 15 minutes to start up. Then i get this disk utilities screen. I'm now unable to do anything. When going into disk utility, disk 0 shows with Mac OS X base system underneath it. All the clickable buttons are faded out. Is there something wrong with the hardrive? and where could i get this fixed? There isn't a warranty on it.

OS X :: Unable To Remove Time Machine Partition / This Startup Disk Is Not Supported

Sep 22, 2010

I had my hard drive partitioned via bootcamp to run windows vista. I use software at work that isn't supported by Mac (it is now, but our version is old and it costs 10k to upgrade yada yada yada). One night I was playing around with the time machine feature (had the macbook for three years now never touched it, wish i hadn't) and accidentally told the time machine to use the partition made by bootcamp for windows to back up my mac. Well this messed everything up. Now that partition is gone (windows) and that volume is now called time machine backups. I have used some threads in here to try and remove that and nothing seems to work (most of the threads are from 2007 to 2008).

What I need help with is removing that time machine volume so that I can run bootcamp again to reinstall windows. When I attempt to run bootcamp right now it says "This startup disk is not supported." When I restart and hold option only the mac hd is available to choose. I also use(d) VMware Fusion to run Windows.

Just an FYI. Tech Support at Allsoft states The Disk Warrior 4.2 Boot DVD will not Boot the new 2010 MBP's. They are waiting for information (software) from Apple.

Will need to use Target Mode or another Mac connected with Firewire till then. Boot from that then run DW from your MBP.

OS X Mavericks :: Time Machine - No Sparse Bundle After Disk Replace

Jul 1, 2014

I have an external disk drive, with which I can easily replace hard disks. Normally, I use my 2TB disk for TM backups but I had to remove it temporarily from my disk drive. After I have reinserted it (everything was fine) and mounted it, TM did not recognize the old backup bundle and failed to backup, because there is not enough disk space available to create a new backup bundle. 

When I look at the root directory of my backup volume, I recognize that Finder has lost the sparse bundle bit and my backup is shown as normal directory. 

How can resolve that without erasing my disk and creation of a new backup??
