    I'm glad someone has gotten theirs.

    I'd like to see how unfinished it is for myself. I'm still waiting to hear from anyone at the company.

    I am a Tech Tool Pro user too. Still using 3 it works great for my OS 9. How long do you think it will be before it is made a finished product for Panther?

    It's done as far as Micromat getting a Panther-compatible product out the door. The x.x.1 change was for Panther compatibility.

    Considering that this who process has taken a good 9 months past the original deployment for the initial release, it could take another 3 months to see the holes filled--now that someone has gotten some sleep.

    I've been using Drive 10 and I noticed a difference in the way it works in contrast to the repairs that TechTool Deluxe made. I just hope that TTP4 does not do damage and works with journaling. Disabling journaling each time does not seem an enlightened, Mac-like operation.

    when I used to use OS 9 I used to use DiskWarrior to repair my disk problems then I used TTP to check other problems... I was told this was the best way to fix problems... and it worked great!! I always hated norton!

    I hope this is the same for the new versions of DW and TTP... even though i haven't used a Disk Utility other than Apple's and fsck since OS X came out :p so what it's like 3 years now? should i start being paranoid?

    Thanks
    MaT
