    I have a clone of a former G5 startup drive on a WD MyBook external HD that has never really been able to boot for the past few months, especially on an Intel MacBook. I've been able to recover some of the info manually using an old G4 Powerbook, but never completely recovered all of the info. I tried doing all that DD Rescue stuff, but it became a little too involved and over my head. There are still a few documents I'd like to try and salvage from the drive. Although the drive does get recognized on my MB, I can't access the info. The drive is actually in three partitions and I can only access one of them for some reason. I'm thinking about purchasing something like Disk Warrior to see if this would work. Is Disk Warrior or a similar program worth a shot?

    +1 for DRII. The best app out there. Period.
