G4 Quicksilver 867MHz
OSX 10.4

Hi all,

Hope you can help me recover. Have a boot drive on the above machine, and had only about 8GB free out of 75GB (I use external firewire drives for FCP media). Anyway, things have been getting sluggish and problematic, so I ran Techtools . . .did the whole suite of tests and did an optimization, which ran for 10 hours. When the optimization was done, I closed Techtools. . .and I couldn't reboot at all. Gray screen kept telling me to reboot, but it never got past that screen.

I popped in DiskWarrior, and it only took 15 seconds for it to tell me that "another utility program" had damaged too many files for a rebuilding to even be possible.

Is there any way, any way at all I can fix this? I was going to add a bigger internal drive anyway, but apparently not soon enough to Carbon Copy Clone everything over.

Please, I've got to be able to get at that boot drive. . .or at least some of the photo files I have on there -

Thanks so much,
