Обзор: DiskWarrior утилиту Mac Disk - Mac OSX

Если есть одна утилита инструмент, который каждый пользователь Mac должны иметь, его DiskWarrior по Alsoft . Это удивительное обслуживание Mac инструмент, который помогает в ремонте диске каталоги, ремонт недействительными правами доступа к файлам

01 - Почему именно он?

Были ли у Вас время, когда ваш Mac не загружается? Или Wouldnt вы любите, чтобы получить предупреждение, прежде чем ваш жесткий диск выйдет из строя? Это две общие проблемы, которые DiskWarrior может помочь с довольно легко. И это только два из многих DiskWarriors много возможностей.

02 - Если Ваш Mac оленья кожа Boot Up

Часто, когда вы Mac обыкновение загрузки, это связано с диска каталог повреждений. Конечно Есть другой диск утилита инструментов там, которые помогают, но DiskWarrior обрабатывает это по-другому и менее вредным способом. Диск Воин поиск в каталоге данных для неверных данных или повреждения, то он пытается восстановить структуру каталогов, чтобы решить эту проблему, позволяя вам загрузиться еще раз, когда каталог был отремонтирован и заменить. Этот процесс происходит быстро и будет ваш Mac и работает снова через несколько минут.

Мой Mac не загрузится в операционной системе, поэтому я побежала DiskWarrior и через 20 минут, мой Mac вернулся и работает снова. Без DiskWarrior я бы пришлось переустанавливать всю операционную систему еще раз, стоит мне как время, так и разочарования. Таким образом, позволяет работать через некоторые особенности DiskWarrior.

03 - Как пользоваться

Вы можете использовать диск воина в двух направлениях. Вы можете загрузить с загрузочного диска DiskWarrior вверх, удерживая клавишу Option (Alt) во время запуска, которая позволит вам выбрать из вариантов загрузки. Также вы можете запустить его из другого Mac. С одной Mac, запустите приложение DiskWarrior, а затем запустить Mac вы хотите восстановить из целевой режиме (при загрузке Mac удерживайте клавишу T для загрузки в целевой режим). Подключите Firewire между двумя Mac, и жесткий диск Mac вы хотите ремонт будет установить на Mac, на котором работает приложение DiskWarrior.

После DiskWarrior запущен, он позволяет выбрать диск / объем вы хотите восстановить.

В каталоге Tab вы можете сканировать выбранный диск для каталога вопросов, и ремонт старых / поврежденных каталог с новым каталогом.

В каталог сборки вы можете сначала проверить ваш диск, чтобы увидеть часть диска каталог, который не работает на ее оптимальной.

Вот сканирования моего диска данных, прежде чем я побежал восстановить DiskWarrior. Вы можете видеть, что граф не является непрерывным в цвете.

Затем я запускаю Каталог DiskWarrior Восстановление Utility.

Вот то, что диск выглядит на графике после восстановления. Вы можете видеть теперь, что график изображает непрерывный спектр цвета представляющих лучшие структуры каталогов диска.

Перед DiskWarrior работает каталог восстановить, это показывает вам отчет о том, что будут заменены. Вы также можете сохранить отчет после восстановления для справки позже, если это необходимо.

На вкладке Файл вы можете выбрать для сканирования файлов и папок из выбранной диск, чтобы проверить наличие повреждений или потенциальных проблем совместимости.

Описание редакции

Исправьте проблемы, влияющие на работу вашего диска и файловой системы

DiskWarrior – это программа для пользователей Mac, которая позволяет исправлять ошибки файловой системы. Задача DiskWarrior – следить за тем, чтобы такие ошибки не возникали вовсе, и исправлять их по мере появления. Благодаря DiskWarrior вы получите свободную от ошибок файловую систему, что повысит качество работы системы в целом. Для DiskWarrior доступно множество плагинов, расширяющих функционал программы – например, с их помощью программа сможет проверять мастер-блоки, менять блоки HFS, проверять и менять заголовки томов (HFS Plus), битмапы томов, деревья каталогов и прочее, что расположено на диске вашего Mac. Разница между DiskWarrior и другими аналогичными программами в том, то аналоги зачастую упускают из вида самый важный аспект – сперва следует проверять файлы в папках, чтобы использовать их для создания папки-замены. Такой подход позволяет восстанавливать файлы, которые не по зубам другим программам. DiskWarrior переходит к восстановлению данных диска лишь тогда, когда ничего другого уже не остается.Другой важный момент, связанный с возможной потерей данных, это физическое повреждение диска. Серьезные повреждения носителей могут привести к потере данных. DiskWarrior можно настроить так, чтобы программа автоматически проверяла систему на предмет возможного физического повреждения носителей. Это даст вам возможность создать резервную копию ваших файлов до того, как диск сломается окончательно.

DiskWarrior And Mac OS X

Every vehicle needs service periodically. A computer is no different. A little periodic maintenance can keep your machine humming, and prevent major failures later too. In your arsenal of tools, DiskWarrior for Mac is essential. If it's your only tool, it's an excellent choice.

Some time back I wrote about experiencing a little disk trouble involving Mac OS X. Various solutions were offered to me via email, among which was a suggestion to look at DiskWarrior, and all of which contained fulsome praise for the product. As the only apparent competitor in the field was Norton Utilities, I had to check this out for myself. After long last, I finally have a copy in my hand. It was pricey, but it works.

The executive summary of DiskWarrior is that it fine-tunes your disk. It does this in two ways: by ordering the directory structure efficiently, and by defragmenting the disk contents. In addition, under Mac OS it loads the DiskShield extension that checks the integrity of data before it's committed to disk, thereby ensuring data integrity. All of these processes are done with clever patented technologies. In particular, the directory structure is optimized by building a replacement structure from disk data, then replacing it later after you have had a chance to review DiskWarrior's proposed replacement. This technology qualifies as very cool. A log file for each major procedure is optionally written to disk at the end.

The DiskWarrior on-disk manual gives a pithy description of what this directory and its structure is. In a word, it's the system Mac OS uses to track where everything is on the hard disk, similar to the file allocation table in the IBM-compatible world. You know already that the disk contains files and folders. The directory is a kind of database that keeps an on-the-fly record of where each and every file and folder is on the disk. One doesn't instantly think about this functionality, because it happens transparently in the background. I'd liken it to how FedEx tracks each and every parcel - millions of 'em daily - from source to destination worldwide. At any time you can find out where your parcel is right now. Blazin' amazin'. So too does your computer know where every file and folder is right now. It had better. Otherwise your disk would be a mass of apparently random digital bits, all totally useless.

DiskWarrior runs in two ways, as an installed program on your hard disk (e.g. DiskShield) and as a suite of utilities run directly from the bootable CD. The first time you use DiskWarrior, you'll want to use the latter method. Hold down the C key as your Mac boots, until you see the Mac happy face that signifies a successful boot in progress. I'd guess that this is how you'll use DiskWarrior most of the time. The reason why you boot from CD is so that system files on your hard disk aren't locked. If files are locked, they can't be modified. Merely boot the computer from a different disk, and all of the files on your default hard disk are left free. This is standard procedure.

There were a few things that surprised me negatively about DiskWarrior. So that you aren't surprised by them too, allow me to present them up front. First of all, the box. Yes, the box. Most shrink-wrapped software comes in a somewhat fancy box, particularly at this price point. While the colorful print is tasteful, this box is just one step up from the way Brits serve fish and chips. Again, inside the box there is... not much. In fact, the grand contents amount to a security seal envelope that contains a registration card and the CD envelope, which in turn contains the CD itself. That's it. No manual, no quick-start instructions, not even any advertisements for other Alsoft products. This is a 100% on-the-disk deal. And, sure enough, all of these things are on the CD. Except for the instinctive hunch to insert the CD and poke around in it, I don't know how I would have known to boot my machine from it and go from there. But now you know. Memo to Alsoft: Print the instruction on the CD label itself: Insert disk, reboot, and hold down C after Apple chord.

Oddly enough, the first time I inserted the CD into my drive, it failed to appear on my Mac OS desktop at all. Next time out, though, my Mac booted from the DiskWarrior CD just fine, and the latter was ever-visible on the desktop after that, regardless of how I booted. Go figure.

Finally, when the program asked me to select a folder into which I'd like to install the program, it did precisely what I said. It installed itself into Applications (Mac OS 9) as if there were nothing else in that folder. This is a first. Without exception until now, every other Mac OS program I have ever installed using an installer program created its own program folder and installed the pieces into it. DiskWarrior installs directly into wherever you say. So I'm tellin' you now. Make sure you tell DiskWarrior's installer to install into Applications (Mac OS 9):DiskWarrior, or else you'll have a mess to clean up. You have been forewarned.

That said, I not only have it all off my chest, I also am happy to say that Alsoft put its efforts where it counts: into the quality of the program. DiskWarrior ran its Rebuild and Optimize routines flawlessly. With performance like that, I will happily find my own CD jewel case and forget about the box.

Why do you need DiskWarrior if you just want to use your Mac? Because every computer needs servicing now and then. Without it, each day's use increases your odds of a fatal disk crash, or at least significant data loss. DiskWarrior operates in true Mac style, with minimalist options that do the job right'. If you blindly click the buttons, you won't go far wrong, though I don't recommend you do that. As always, and particularly for a program of this type, read the documentation first, at least the Read Me and Quick Start files. It's all on the disk. If you boot with DiskWarrior once a month or so, and run through those two functions, Rebuild (DiskWarrior) and Optimize (PlusOptimizer), your Mac will maintain its peak disk performance. In addition, DiskShield will keep your Mac OS disk operations clean continuously.

To use DiskWarrior, boot your machine with the CD. You may want to run Disk First Aid on your disk before getting overly involved in DiskWarrior. Just run it from your hard drive's Applications (Mac OS 9):Utilities folder. When you're satisfied, open the DiskWarrior CD. The program is right there. My copy also included PlusOptimizer, which has a shortcut in the CD's root folder also. These are the two applications you'll use now. Later, when you get good at this, you might opt for the Rebuild Directory script, located in the DiskWarrior CD Extras:DiskWarrior AppleScripts folder. To use this script, merely drag and drop your hard disk's icon onto it. You'll have to answer a couple of dumb questions at first, and also confirm the rebuild process if there isn't enough disk space for a backup copy. Otherwise, though, it's all hands-free. It's the way to go, because the whole process takes hours; hours to build a replacement directory, and hours more to actually write it. With the script, your biggest problem will be dimming the screen of your iMac. I suggest you either lower the brightness before you start, or put a large book in front of the screen, particularly if your iMac is in your bedroom. PlusOptimizer is fairly intuitive to use. If you manage the directory rebuild process - and you will - then you'll do fine with PlusOptimizer too.

How about Mac OS X compatibility? DiskWarrior knows what files not to touch. Assuming you installed OS X on the same partition as OS 9, then everything will work flawlessly, as this partition will be formatted with HFS+, the standard Mac OS disk structure. If you installed OS X on a separate partition that was formatted with UFS, then you're out of luck. On the other hand, unix writes and keeps track of files in a different way than do other operating systems, and some argue that fragmentation is a non-issue under unix. You be the judge. Most likely it's a moot discussion, as your Mac probably has OS X and OS 9 on the same partition and same disk. Keep it simple, I say. After you've run DiskWarrior, your machine will boot exactly as it did before, from any of the installed operating systems that you choose with Startup Disk, including OS X.

The one thing that DiskWarrior will not be able to do under OS X is run DiskShield, as this loads as a Mac OS extension. I would expect some OS X equivalent in the fullness of time, probably a native OS X application version of DiskShield that runs automatically at boot time. In the meantime, if OS X is where you live most of the time, then don't bother to install DiskWarrior onto your hard disk at all. Just run it periodically from the CD.

So, do you need DiskWarrior even if you run OS X most of the time? Indeed, you do. The underlying HFS+ disk structure is the same, regardless of which operating system runs on it. So it still needs a little TLC periodically. The fact that DiskWarrior boots OS 9 should not deter you. It's the good stuff DiskWarrior does for your disk that you want. The means to get there, particularly the choice of operating system, aren't terribly important. Though DiskWarrior isn't an OS X application, it acts upon the file system on which OS X sits. If that file system is compromised in any way, so will be your OS X experience.

I have had enough disk crashes of various sorts to convince me that you need at least a couple of tools around to help get your system back and running when disaster strikes. It's hard to avert the kind of disaster that originates in fingerpoken, but DiskWarrior will give you a fighting chance of maintaining your disk integrity through the daily grind. DiskWarrior isn't designed to recover an unbootable hard disk per se, but rather to prevent disk damage in the first place. It's quite likely that you still can restore a crashed disk by rebuilding its directory, because a scrambled directory is a common cause of hard disk crashes. If you are able to do this even once, DiskWarrior will be paid for. Enjoy the peace of mind. Ciao.
