    What's wrong with current one? BTW. It's DiskWarrior.

    Duff-Man says....yeah, what's wrong with the current one - it works just fine as far as I am concerned. I've heard nothing about a new version though if I were to guess maybe when 10.6 comes out it might be time for a new "full" version.

    And MowingDevil - I respectfully suggest you have another (or first?) look at the Forum Rules, specifically the one about "bump" posts......oh yeah!

    Thanks for the type-o correction :rolleyes:

    This is whats wrong w/ the current version (if you have the latest Macs available which I'm receiving soon):

    Sounds to me like the startup disk won't work on the current MBP, no?

    ps Sorry about the bump, didn't know and really wanted some response.

    I think that Alsoft will release an upgrade to the current version of DiskWarrior with support for new models. You have to wait patiently :)

    Kind of a basic question, but have you contacted Alsoft directly with a question about when they expect to have a disk version that wll boot the machine in question? I would think that they would be the authoritative source of information about that...

    I've sent them an inquiry, probably hear back on monday. In the meantime, just thought someone here might have heard something. I def need to get an updated OSX version of the software to fix an external drive but am getting a new MBP...sorta makes sense to get a version that will work on the new comp.

    True but I'd like to have a version that is compatible thats all.
    DW has saved my bacon before, a few times. Best utility ever!

    DiskWarrior is one of my favorite Mac utilities.

    However, it has failed me a few times. SpinRite has been a savior in those cases.
