    On a whim I decided to see what DW found out about the health of the file directory of my four day old laptop.

    I booted the rMBR of the repair partition and ran DW via terminal. DW reported that I needed to have it rebuild the directory, after giving it a score of 7.

    I was surprised that it needed a directory rebuild so soon. I have installed Office for Mac beta, Clean My Mac 3, and f.lux.

    Sorry the new MacBook 2015 retina. Got the acronym wrong.

    Interested in how you run DW via terminal.

    Can't get the Macbook to boot form OS X usb drive or the DW usb drive.

    Mine says 7 also.

    You'll insert the DW flash drive and boot from the recovery partition (Command R on boot). From there, you'll go under the Utilities menu, and open terminal. Once in terminal, you'll type the following and hit return. This will launch DiskWarrior:
    Code:
    /Volumes/DW/go

    I've run DW on several of my friends Macbook Pro's and considering the've had them for years, they came up with the "yellow" 7 too.

    Must of the issues that showed up on mine are related to onedrive.
