Your mileage may vary, but my boss's drive borked big time a little
while back, and Norton hacked at it for 30 minutes, choked on it,
dumped me back to the Finder and basically told me "Sorry, you're on
your own." So I popped DW in there and we were back up in ten minutes.
DiskWarrior only does one thing though - rebuilds disk directories.
But it does that really, really well. It builds new ones from the
actual sizes and locations of the files and then throws the old ones
away and replaces them. Norton does other things (FileSaver is nice to
have around), but it's getting a bit long in the tooth. Apple, IIRC,
told Symantec NOT to produce a Norton for OS X. So I'll be working
with DW and Tech Tool Pro 4, when that finally arrives.
