Can Diskwarrior fix this? - Mac Applications & Software

Until now, every directory problem that I've encountered has been corrected by running Disk Utility, or fsck in single-user mode. But I have a problem that they can't fix. Here's an excerpt from the status given by fsck: ** Checking Catalog file. Missing thread record (id=8370) Missing thread record (id=8385) Missing thread record (id=84914) ** Checking multi-linked files. ** Checking Catalog hierarchy. Invalid volume directory count (It should be 30492 instead of 30495) Invalid volume file count (It should be 156536 instead of 156545) ** Checking volume bitmap. ** Checking volume information.

    Until now, every directory problem that I've encountered has been
    corrected by running Disk Utility, or fsck in single-user mode. But I
    have a problem that they can't fix. Here's an excerpt from the status
    given by fsck:

    ** Checking Catalog file.
    Missing thread record (id=8370)
    Missing thread record (id=8385)
    Missing thread record (id=84914)
    ** Checking multi-linked files.
    ** Checking Catalog hierarchy.
    Invalid volume directory count
    (It should be 30492 instead of 30495)
    Invalid volume file count
    (It should be 156536 instead of 156545)
    ** Checking volume bitmap.
    ** Checking volume information.
    Invalid volume directory count
    (It should be 30495 instead of 30492)

    The directory and file counts will vary, of course, but the thread
    records are always the same. And the two mentions of 'invalid volume
    directory count' contradict each other!?

    Is this a situation which Diskwarrior (which I don't have, yet) can
    correct, or will I need to wipe the drive and restore a backup?

    Although nothing is guaranteed, DiskWarrior should fix that without any
    difficulty. Certainly I've had it fix things that _looked_ much worse.
