    A few months ago I got a mac pro to replace my old G4 Quicksilver (it was upgraded to 2Ghz). I am used to regular maintenance with DiskWarrior but my understanding is that you cannot use Diskwarrior as a start up disk with the Mac Pro.

    What would you suggest for regular maintenance? I already have Onyx and Drive Genius 2 should arrive this week. I have two Hard Drives for Leopard and one for Windows XP.

    Well, maintanance is not really necessary. If you tend to not have your Mac running 24/7, enter these commands in Terminal.app once in a while:

    Code:
    sudo periodic daily
    sudo periodic weekly
    sudo periodic monthly
    
    Those will run regular maintanance scripts.

    Edit: In OS X Tiger and Leopard, the above commands are not necessary. They should run automatically, whether you leave your computer running 24/7 or put it to sleep regularly. There's no real point in shutting it down when you have sleep mode, by the way.
