Why you might want *this* version:
Older versions of DiskWarrior "updated" to version 3.0.3 can not beupdated again. The Original CD from DiskWarrior is required in order tobe able to update to future versions. Confirmed working with Tiger10.4.3.
This comes from an actual retail disk that was purchased from Alsoftand shipped via snail mail January, 2006. Comments were not changed oradded from the original.

What's new in DiskWarrior 3.0.3?
• DiskWarrior 3.0.3 is compatible with Mac OS X versions 10.2.1 through 10.4.
•DiskWarrior 3.0.3 supports Tiger's new Access Control Lists (ACL) andextended file attributes. It also has improved journaling support.
Why do I need DiskWarrior?
DiskWarrior is the only program where there is never a risk of losingdirectory data and thus never a risk of losing access to your files.
Only DiskWarrior has all of these features:
• Uses directory data to quickly rebuild the directory structure
• Eliminates risk of losing access to files other disk "repair"utilities attempt to fix the directory by patching the directorystructure and risk deleting sections of the directory
• Scavenges directory to find all salvageable file and folder data, even data contained in damaged nodes
• Eliminates unseen directory errors, preventing minor directory errors from escalating into major problems
• Recovers lost files and folders
• Optimizes directory for maximum directory performance, speeding up overall disk performance
• Monitors drive hardware for potential drive failure
• Verification of replacement directory ensures data integrity
• Comparison of original directory with replacement directory tells youwhich files and folders may have been affected by directory damage
• Patented preview feature to view what the disk will look like afterthe directory is rebuilt, allowing you to view files and folders beforeany directory changes are written to disk
• Repairs damaged boot blocks and blesses the system folder to ensure that the computer will start from the repaired disk
• Checks custom icon files for corruption, eliminating a common cause of system crashes
• Repairs problems with wrapper volume System files caused when HFS Plus disks are initialized under Mac OS 9.0 - 9.0.4
• Safely permits interruptions of any kind, including power outages
• Advanced "Verify Reads and Writes" technology protects your data
• Supports bad block sparing software
• Supports file journaling (Mac OS X 10.2.2 or later)
What is DiskWarrior?
DiskWarrior is the safest, the most technologically advanced, and themost powerful utility to eliminate directory damage available for anycomputer. DiskWarrior uses a different approach to disk directoryrepair than other programs. DiskWarrior is not a disk repair program inthe conventional sense. Instead of patching the original directory, ituses a patent-pending technology to quickly build a new replacementdirectory using data recovered from the original directory, therebyrecovering files and folders that you thought were lost and that noother program could recover.
Conquer Disk Damage!
DiskWarrior is the most highly decorated Mac disk repair utility ever.It repairs disks that no other program can repair. New hardwaremonitoring helps protect your data from drive malfunctions.
How does DiskWarrior recover data no one else can?
At Alsoft, we know that the most important thing when you areattempting to repair your disks is getting your data back. That's whythe first thing DiskWarrior does is it scavenges your originaldirectory to find all the file data it can. It then uses this data tobuild an entirely new replacement directory. DiskWarrior is the onlyproduct that finds all of your data. Its patent pending method alwaysresults in a perfectly rebuilt directory without any errors and thatcontains all of your file and folder data.
DiskWarrior 3 and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
In order to run DiskWarrior while started from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)you will need to use DiskWarrior version 3.0.3. Earlier versions ofDiskWarrior, while not compatible with Tiger, will not harm your disk.Attempting to rebuild a disk with DiskWarrior 3.0.2 or earlier, whilestarted from Tiger, will result in an error stating that a "Mac OSServices" failure occurred.
Attempting to rebuild a Tiger disk while started from a DiskWarrior3.0.2 CD can also result in an error message stating that "This diskappears to have a newer version of the Mac OS disk format than thisversion of DiskWarrior." When started from earlier versions of theDiskWarrior CD, DiskWarrior may simply indicate that the disk cannot berepaired. In all cases, DiskWarrior 3.0.2 and earlier, will not harmyour disk.
When rebuilding your disk, the new version of DiskWarrior featuressupport for Tiger's new Access Control Lists (ACL) and extended fileattributes. It has improved journaling support and enhanced RAIDsupport, including the new concatenated RAID volumes.
DiskWarrior 3.0.3 is now shipping on DiskWarrior CD revision 39.
All Mac models introduced as of 10/19/2005 and meeting therequirements for DiskWarrior can be started from the DiskWarrior CD.The new iBook models introduced on 07/26/2005, the new iMac G5 (withbuilt-in iSight) models introduced on 10/12/2005 and the new Power MacG5 (dual-core) and PowerBook models introduced on 10/19/2005 can bestarted from the current CD.

How does DiskWarrior safeguard data from hardware malfunction?
Hardware failure presents a potential threat to your data. When a drivemechanism fails, the data on the drive can be lost, with an expensivedata recovery service your only option to retrieve your data.DiskWarrior can be used to activate internal diagnostics that are builtinto disk devices to help determine if a drive is in danger of physicalmalfunction. If the potential for failure is indicated, DiskWarriorwill notify you, giving you the opportunity to back up your data beforethe drive fails. These tests can be executed manually, or you canchoose to have the tests run automatically every hour, day, or week.DiskWarrior also provides several notification options should thediagnostics report a problem.
How Can I Rebuild My Startup Disk?
DiskWarrior ships on a CD-ROM that will start up in Mac OS X on a Macwith a G3 or higher processor (including a G5) with built-in USB and128 MB (256 MB recommended) of RAM.
Once started from the DiskWarrior CD, DiskWarrior can be run from theCD to eliminate all damage to any HFS (Mac OS Standard) and HFS Plus(Mac OS Extended) disk directories, including your normal startup diskas well as journaled disks (but not case-sensitive disks). Version 2.1of DiskWarrior, also included, runs and installs on a 68020 Mac orbetter when started from Mac OS 7.1 to 9.x. Either version ofDiskWarrior repairs any supported disk no matter which version of theMac OS is installed on the disk being repaired.
Requirements for DiskWarrior
To rebuild the directory on a Mac OS Standard (HFS) or Mac OS Extended(HFS Plus) disk, DiskWarrior requires a Mac OS computer with a G3 orbetter processor (such as a G4 or G5) with built-in USB and a minimumof 256 MB RAM (384 MB or more recommended) to start up and run from theDiskWarrior CD, regardless of what operating system is installed on thedisk to be rebuilt. The computer must also have the latest firmwareupdates installed. The disk to be rebuilt must be locally connected,must not be write protected, must have a valid partition map and musthave a case-insensitive directory. If you plan to rebuild the directoryon your startup disk, you need to start up from another disk capable ofstarting up in Mac OS X 10.2.1 through 10.4, such as the DiskWarriorCD. (DiskWarrior cannot be run while started up from the Apple Mac OS Xinstall CD.)
If you wish to enable DiskWarrior's automatic hardware monitoring, youwill need to install the DiskWarrior application on your Mac OScomputer. To install the DiskWarrior application, you must have a MacOS computer running Mac OS X 10.2.1 through 10.4 with at least 256 MBRAM. Installing DiskWarrior is not required to run the application fromthe DiskWarrior CD to rebuild a disk directory.
Can't boot up off a disk?
There are two workarounds:
(1) Alternate Startup Disk: If you have another drive (such as anexternal FireWire drive or an iPod) you could install OS X (10.2.1 orhigher) on that drive and then start from it. Install DiskWarrior on
that drive's "Utilities" folder, (which is inside the "Applications" folder) and run DiskWarrior from there.
(2) FireWire Target Disk Mode: Connect two Macs with a FireWire cablewhere the one is the "host" (your eMac in this situation) and the otheris a "target". The host Mac should be running an OS X in whichDiskWarrior 3.0.3 runs. In this scenario, the target Mac is the newiBook that cannot be started from the DiskWarrior CD. Start by shuttingdown the target Mac. Then turn it on while holding down the "T" key.The target Mac's drive will appear as a usable drive on the host Mac.Run DiskWarrior from the host Mac and rebuild the target Mac's disk.
