    Yeiiii, my first post @ Macrumors!! :)
    I want to get some good system utilities for my Mac (Powerbook G4, OS X 10.2.6) I've noticed the prices for these are similar, and I've been told to stay away from Norton Utilities. Any recommendations from these or others? Any feedback appreciated, thanks!

    i've used Tech Tool Pro 4 and Disk Warrior. both have worked flawlessly for os9 and osx.

    DW seems to catch more file structure problems.

    what i've read says DW is the better product, so moving forward i'm using that.

    DiskWarrior 3 IS the combined Drive 10/DiskWarrior 2 update. There will be no future updates of Drive 10. DW3 is the only way to go. Best performance on the market, IMHO.

    DW3 is out. I received my copy from Other World Computing yesterday. They have them in stock and ready for shipping. Enjoy!
