"Great, but with a new clubfoot"

January 19, 2015  |  By gbdoc

 |  Version: DiskWarrior 5.0


Best in class for many years now, and v. 5's even better ... EXCEPT FOR ...


DW's best in class, and has saved my Mac life twice, when TTP couldn't. Still, TTP's pretty good, too, and their eDrive was a stroke of genius. For years, I've put DW on my eDrive, and, though not recommended by either company, it has always worked fine, so I always had everything I might need (and did, once, on the road) right on my Mac, at my fingertips. With v5, DW doesn't work off an eDrive, only from a USB flash stick, which means you now have have this extra piece of equipment handy in case you need it. :((


What DW 5 does would be worth 5 stars, but this lost functionality is a real bummer. If nothing else, they ought to make it possible to install and use their recovery disk on a separate partition, like TTP's eDrive.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 5.0
  • 64-Bit Today's large disks can have large directories. Using the latest 64-bit technology allows DiskWarrior 5 to handle even the largest disks.
  • Ships on a bootable flash drive to repair your startup disk Flash drives start up much faster than DVDs and can be updated as needed.
  • Includes the new DiskWarrior Recovery Maker New Macs have new OS X startup requirements. DiskWarrior Recovery Maker updates your DiskWarrior Recovery flash drive with the latest OS X.
  • Runs from OS X Recovery (Recovery HD) In an emergency, you no longer need a separate startup disk to run DiskWarrior on your startup disk unless your startup disk has partition table damage.
  • Repairs partition table damage Sometimes the damage is to the map that describes all your drive's partitions which makes all your partitions unavailable. DiskWarrior 5 can repair standard Mac GUID partition tables when started from the DiskWarrior Recovery flash drive.
  • New architecture Updated to use the newest OS X technologies while still supporting older PowerPC and Intel Macs that can no longer run the latest OS X.
  • Significantly faster For many disks, directory rebuilding is twice as fast as the previous version.
  • Recovers more data from drives with hardware malfunctions Recover your important files from most failing drives, possibly saving you thousands of dollars in professional recovery costs.
  • Detects and repairs more disk problems than ever The best is even better.
  • New Directory Optimization Index You can tell how efficient your directories are at a glance.
  • Repairs Time Machine backup disks Drives containing Time Machine back ups can have enormous directories that were often too large for DiskWarrior 4. The 64-bit memory addressing of DiskWarrior 5 allows these drives to be repaired or recovered.
