Response to: Hard Drive Too Damaged To Repair

Hi F.J.,

I have run Disk Utility, while I was running off the CD and it said the disk in question was fine. The S.M.A.R.T Status is verified on my 2 partitions and my OS 9 disk.

    Hi again !

    That's interesting indeed...

    So, Disk Utility reports that the drive is OK and Disk Warrior insists that the disk is too damaged to be repaired ?

    In that case, I would suggest contacting the authors and asking wether this is a known symptom. Indeed, since Disk Warrior does not use the same routines than Disk Utility, it may detect additional issues. However, it would be best to make sure first that this is not a false positive.
