    Have Tiger on one internal drive along with Disk Warrior 3.0.3 (Tiger) and Tech Tool 4.0.5 (Tiger).

    Have anther internal drive (same machine) with Leopard.

    I assume that I can run either utility when booted with Leopard to maintain the Tiger drive - but that I should not use either utility (version) to maintain the drive with Leopard?

    Comments appreciated!

    Your hypothesis is spot-on.

    In general it is not a good idea to use an older utility on a newer drive, because of file system changes the old utility isn't aware of.
