Hi all. I got this error from Diskwarrior and am wondering what the deal is? Here are the details: My 80GB hard drive crashed and burned on my Macbook Pro Dual 1.83 running 10.5.8. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the drive before it went totally kaput and then cloned it back onto a new drive that I installed into the MBP. Upon running Diskwarrior 3.3 on the new clone in the MBP to look at permissions, I got error -9997. Do you know what that error indicates? Googling it tells me that, if you get that error in 10.3 or 10.4 via Disk Utility (not DW) then you are missing a basesystem.pkg file. See: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2023?viewlocale=en_US Looking back on the original clone, this file doesn't exist where the KB thread says it should so I'm assuming 10.5.8 doesn't use the same file in the same place. I ran disk utility on the drive to look at permissions and other than a few corrected permissions, it didn't say there were any other errors. So, which do I trus, disk utility or DW? Is this just a disconnect between the old DW 3.3 and 10.5.8 (I mean the old DW not reading 10.5 correctly for some reason) ? Or do I need to do a clean install from the systems disk (something I really don't want to do if possible)? I've working on the computer now and things seem to be fine so just want to know how serious this error message is. Please help if you have any insight or experience. Thanks!
