    "GREAT PROGRAM!!! A "MUST OWN" for Mac users!!"

    June 28, 2013  |   By kfcusmc

    Version: DiskWarrior 4.4

    Pros

    It works very well. Recommended to me by an Apple Genius several years ago. I bought it on the spot and have never regretted it. Far superior to the disk utility included in OS X.

    Cons

    Maybe cost, though if you need it once it will be well worth the price of admission.

    Summary

    Resolved a catastrophic hard drive failure that occurred when I attempted to upgrade from OS X 10.8.3 to 10.8.4. Apple genius said I needed a new hard drive for my iMac 2.93 GHz i7 (mid-2010) for $229 plus another $99 to transfer my files from the "dead drive." Optical drive also wouldn't read my Diskwarrior disk. I built a new boot drive from a spare 1TB drive and put Diskwarrior (which I already owned) on it. It rebuilt the corrupted directory on the "dead" drive and preserved all my files. I am writing this review on the iMac with the resurrected drive. This was the worst of only three drive failures I've had in 30 years of being an Apple computer owner. Diskwarrior saved my ass. Diskwarrior is the shiznit!!!! Total cost for this save was $18...the cost of a wired mouse and keyboard.

    "Traveling and it crashed - and good as new now"

    November 3, 2012  |   By kate9

    Version: DiskWarrior 4.4

    Pros

    Wow, I thought I was going to lose everything, 140GB of photos and files, and the computer - this seems to have fixed all the problems, and it's zippy and fast again.

    Cons

    Haven't seen it so far, just done today.

    "$99 to recover my priceless memories?? Total BARGAIN!"

    September 26, 2012  |   By Theescarylarry

    Version: DiskWarrior 4.4

    Pros

    Recovered over 21,000 lost or missing files that had vanished!
    I had mac error code 36, which ended up being a bad directory with bad nodes and node counts etc etc....DW rebuilt it!

    It is easy to understand and makes life less complicated.

    THIS SOFTWARE KICKS A** !

    Cons

    PRICE...At $99 It isnt what I would initially call reasonable, however what is your data worth? It stung but when it worked, I thought it was worth its weight in gold.

    It may not work for every problem, so that part is a gamble. It's worth having in your arsenal though for sure!

    Summary

    What happened that caused me to buy Disk Warrior? Well, I have this LaCie external 500GB drive that is failing. At startup I get a message essentially telling me its going bad and to backup files. I proceed to do this but after cloning with Super Duper, I discover I am missing huge portions of the data, completely vanished on original disk, nothing on the copy either. I knew it had to be there and I tried several other recovery programs with no luck at all.
    Disk Warrior was able to recover 21,000 files!! I would have been crushed if I lost all my precious photos and videos from so many years of vacations and more.It even retained all the original file names!! Some other software re-names files with generic names which is SOOOO lame.

    want to avoid the cost of file recovery? Back up Back up Back up! Do it now do it today and do it in triplicate.Keep one local, Keep one in the cloud and Keep one at a different address!

    I learned the hard way....

    "Pricey, but possibly the most reliable Mac recovery app"

    August 8, 2012  |   By targinarb

    Version: DiskWarrior 4.4

    Pros

    Saved hard disks twice for me where other common recovery apps (I shall not name names : ) completely flunked out. In some cases, it retained file names from recovered data.

    Cons

    The price is an "ouch", but as everyone who's looked down the barrel of a gun marked "there goes 300GB of data I can't live without"...yeah. Worth every penny in that situation.

    Have heard less than flattering things about their customer service, but cannot comment from personal experience.

    Summary

    If it saves your ass even once...you'll thank it.
