OS X :: How To Copy Data Using Diskwarrior?

Sep 1, 2010

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

Intel Mac :: WD My Passport Won't Let Me Copy Data To It On It

May 24, 2012

I backup my photography on a WD My Passport. I have only used PC's with this in the past, I am now trying to back up some more files and it won't let me copy them to the drive. The permissions say that I have read only access on my Mac. I have read some threads, and they all say that I have format the hard drive to change the permissions and that I will not be able to copy over files bigger than 4G. I have RAW files that can get quite large so limiting the size is an option.

Mac Pro :: Copy Data From Old External Hard Drive To New One

May 25, 2008

Probably a stupid question but I can't figure this out as it is not covered in the User's Guide or in the FAQs on the Fantom website. I have an PowerMac G4 with an old Fantom 120GB external drive which is nearly full. I have purchased a Fantom Drive High Speed USB 2.0 (750GB.) How do I transfer data from my old Fantom to the new one?

OS X :: Cannot Copy Data To External USB Hard Drive

Aug 17, 2009

Macbook pro 13' running 10.5.8 has intermittent issues with usb 2.0 mass storage drives but not jump drives. Here is the issue, my gf just got a brand new mac book pro 13'. This is great for her no more asking to use my unibody macbook. She plugs in the drive I have used for a very long time with my mac my pac etc. with not a hint of issue. The drive shows up copy's stuff off ok. However when it came time to return the data back to the drive it gets about 10% through and just hangs. Here is what I have done. I first thought ok might need a reboot. Then I went with the ok I will check her disk for issues. This is a 3 day old mac book by the way. I found random permissions errors with quick time which has never been run. After the fix the issue goes away for that boot.

The issues seems to come back after a re-boot or so. I go ok enough of this I format the mac with the system disk, then I update to the latest updates from apple. Plug in the drive and still having issues. Run the permissions repair same issues exactly format to format. I have also run the deep test off the system disk the machine checks out through that so I have ruled out ram on her system as a possible culprit. I am at a loss on this machine. I have gone so far as to format the external drive replace the data from my network server and try that. Still no luck. On my box there is no issue it time machines great it copy's data like a usb 2.0 drive should.

IMac :: Reading HDD Externally - To Copy Most Recent Data

Sep 27, 2010

I have experienced a main 320GB hard drive failure in my 24" iMac - which isn't as bad as it sounds as 1) I was considering an upgrade anytime soon anyway, and 2) I have a fairly recent backup. I am taking it to mac repairs tomorrow in Manchester so they can replace it with a 1TB drive - however, I want the original hard drive back on which I am planning to take the most recent data off it that wasn't backed up - so was hoping to shove the damaged SATA drive into an existing USB enclosure, plug it into my new iMac, fix any damaged areas on the drive, then restore what data I need (if retrievable)

But, a colleague has told me tonight, that I can only do that if the enclosure has a Firewire connection - I won't be able to achieve it with a USB connection - can't see why, but can anyone confirm if that is correct? - he seems to think it's something to do with how Disk Utility reads from a drive, the security on the drive, and the file structure but he wasn't sure!

OS X :: Is DiskWarrior Still As Useful?

Nov 22, 2010

I've been using DiskWarrior for several years to optimize my hard drive and perform some hard drive maintenance.

It doesn't seem like it's been updated recently (ver. 4.2), so I'm beginning to wonder if the program has outlived its usefulness. Is there something else now that is better?

I use OS 10.6.5 on an iMac (mid 2007).

OS X :: Diskwarrior Freezes?

Jan 3, 2010

my intel mac OS X internal HDD crashed. (disk utility cannot mount hd, hdd grayed out) so i bought disk warrior online.

I'm currently running my OSX from an USB external HD. Install Diskwarrior in the external HD.

DW found my HD, click "rebuild" ...so far so good.

however, after running DW for about 10 mins, my computer goes to sleep. ever since then, I can't wake my computer to view the status of diskwarrior.

I hope DW is doing its thing but my external HD doesn't even blink. (i can hear the MAC is running?)

it's been 1 day now and still no sign of recovery??

OS X :: Diskwarrior Error-9997?

May 10, 2010

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)?

MacBook Pro :: Does DiskWarrior Ever Boot Up?

Feb 20, 2012

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?

OS X Mavericks :: Used Diskwarrior And Now All Users Are Gone

Jun 4, 2014

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.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

Software :: Blue Screen After Diskwarrior?

Dec 14, 2008

I ran diskwarrior as part of my usual maintenance, but after quitting and attempting to restart from the hard drive, a blue screen eventually appeared and there it remained.

This blue screen flickered slightly and intermittently and when doing so the cursor would disappear.

Identical results occurred when booting from the leopard install cd, running disk utility, quitting and restarting.

Software :: Unable To Start Diskwarrior?

Sep 6, 2009

My iBook G4 (10.4.11 with 512MB) will not start up from the DiskWarrior disc.

I insert the disc and restart the computer holding down the C key until the screen comes up with the program on the screen and then let go of the C key.

The computer then promptly shuts down.

I have not had this problem before.

I have repaired the permissions using Disk Utility.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Boot From Flash Then Run Diskwarrior

Mar 4, 2012

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?

MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.3)

OS X :: Files Recovered From DiskWarrior - What Directory Are My IPhoto Pictures Stored In?

Jul 23, 2009

I have a hard drive that is in the process of dying and had to use Diskwarrior in order to rebuild the drive; luckily, it seems to have recovered my files.

I looked in Users/Library/Pictures to find my iPhoto Library file, however it doesn't seem to my newer photos that I imported into the library.

Is there a secondary/hidden location that the original files are stored in? Where exactly can I find them?

OS X :: Finder Freezes During Copy "some Data Could Not Be Read Or Written"

Jan 15, 2009

I am running osx 10.5.4 on a brand new macbook. I have an old, crappy external hard drive that works intermittently with a bunch of large files on it that I am copying to my new, fancy external hard drive. Problem is, more than half the time, finder will report "unable to complete the operation because some data on 'filename' could not be read or written. (Error Code -36)"

This would be no problem, as I could then just cancel the copy and try again. But Finder freezes the copy window open, and it will not close by clicking on the "x" in the copy window. The only way to try again is to relaunch Finder. I do not want to force finder to quit every time I try to copy a file to my new drive. Is relaunching finder repeatedly bad for my system or hardware? Seems like a glitch. Is there a way around this?
