Disk failure
on Feb 11, 2009 at 8:13:37 pm

Have a 150gig Firewire hard drive connected to a G4 Mac running Leopard that suddenly became unmountable.

When I ran regular DiskUtility on it, I got the following:

KEYS OUT OF ORDER
REBUILDING CATALOG B-TREE
THE VOLUME DATA COULD NOT BE REPAIRED
ERROR: FILESYSTEM VERIFY OR REPAIR FAILED.

When I booted off my DiskWarrior 3.0 disk and ran DW on it, I got the following results:

Sectors: 312,319,592
Sector Size: 512 bytes
Filesystem: HFS Extended (Journaled)
Model: DMI

THE DIRECTORY OF THE DISK "DATA" CANNOT BE REBUILT. THE ORIGINAL DIRECTORY IS TOO SEVERELY DAMAGED. THE DISK WAS NOT MODIFIED (2155, 2179).

Any suggestions?

Well if disk warror cannot repair it, unfortunatly nothing will.

Sorry to say it but it sounds like you need to repartition the drive and start fresh.

If disk warrior gave you the option to preview the disk then that may be the only shot at getting files from it.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!
