DiskWarrior 4 version 4.1 information
DiskWarrior 4 version 4.1 is now available for complete compatibility with
Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). Version 4.1 offers additional repair capabilities
including the ability to repair damaged directory hard links (a new feature
of Leopard for Time Machine backups). DiskWarrior 4 version 4.1 is the only
utility that can repair damaged links, directory loops and other problems
that can happen with directory hard links.
Owners of DiskWarrior 4 version 4.0 will soon be able to download a free CD
updater. When available, this free updater will allow you to create a new
startup CD containing the updated DiskWarrior application. Please note that
the new startup CD will start up the same set of Macs as your current
DiskWarrior CD. Your new CD will not start up any Mac that your current
DiskWarrior CD can not.
Running DiskWarrior 4 version 4.1 on a Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) startup disk
while started from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or earlier:
If you want or need to run DiskWarrior 4 version 4.1 from Mac OS X 10.4 or
earlier, there are two features of DiskWarrior that are not available for a
Mac OS X 10.5 startup disk. First, you cannot repair the permissions of a
Mac OS X 10.5 startup disk. Second, you cannot rebuild a FileVault that was
created under Mac OS X 10.5. You will be able to rebuild a FileVault that
was created on a startup disk that was later upgraded to Mac OS X 10.5.
Your DiskWarrior CD may start up in Mac OS X 10.4 and would therefore have
these features disabled for a Mac OS X 10.5 startup disk.
