    Could you recommend a utility?

    Stay far away from Symantec.



    TechTool works good for me, as does DiskWarrior. I have both because DiskWarrior is more of a one-trick pony (which is does VERY well) and TechTool is a bunch of various tricks.

    I recommend DiskWarrior as my top choice.



    I've had some problems with Tech Tool Pro that resulted in a reformat so I'm not too happy about that. Probably a fluke though. Disk warrior is simple, fast, and does the job. No problems so far.



    Norton is the suck so don't even consider it.

    Another 'Yo' for DW - When the day does come (and it will - sooner or later) you'll be glad you had it!

    I know that my local Apple store tech uses TechTool for troubleshooting, hard and software. But Disk Warrior gets the greatest respect for what it does best: repairing your HD.

    It looks like the consensus of opinion is Disk Warrior, with some votes for Techtools. I appreciate your help. I do not like to fly blind. I've bought some pretty poor apps in the past.
