DiskWarrior 4.1 offers full Leopard compatibility

updated 07:20 pm EST, Thu January 24, 2008

DiskWarrior 4.1, Leopard

Alsoft today unveiled DiskWarrior 4.1, an update to its disk and file repair utility, bringing Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard compatibility and support for the new operating system's features. The new version is able to scan and repair damaged directory hard links, which are used by Time Machine backups; Alsoft claims DiskWarrior 4.1 is the only utility on the market that can repair these issues. DiskWarrior 4.1 is available from Alsoft's website for $100.

Existing owners of DiskWarrior 4 will soon be able to download a free CD updater, which will allow users to create a bootable DiskWarrior 4.1 disc. Alsoft did not mention when this updater will become available.

    Lame

    I dont understand why the updater isn't available at the exact same time as the version you purchase. Why is it that loyal customers are always screwed by this company?

    Thank Heavens

    Using a Mac without DiskWarrior is like working the high trapeze without a safety net.

    more than essential

    Disk Warrior is THE Mac utility!

    I've been using DW from Day One and it's saved my disks, my files, my work, my BUTT more times than I can possibly remember.

    I'll cut Alsoft some slack.

    s*******?

    How is releasing an update a few days after the new version is available on the store "screwed by this company"?

    I've been using DiskWarrior since version 2, maybe longer. I rarely need it anymore, but the once or twice a year I do need to reach for it, it usually comes through. And that's on 100+ Macs.

    I trust DiskWarrior far far more than TechTool, which has a very Quark like attitude toward their customers.

    Quark-like

    That's a good way to put it!

    I've been anxiously awaiting this DW update. Hopefully the updater will be available soon.
