Techtool Pro Error message

    I would appreciate some advice please. I am using a G4 Powerbook 1.33GHZ OS.X 10.4.11. I have Techtool Pro (4.1.2) constantly monitoring and recently it told me that I have an incorrect valence (error msg -61) on my main drive. Now I have checked the Techtool database and it says two critical things. One, don't ignore this message - the second is that it pertains to a Volume Error, and that if running Techtool Pro does not fix it then it probably is serious.

    Great! what I can't ascertain is what to do about it. For example, would reinstalling Tiger fix the problem? Is it hardware related?

    Does anyone have any clues please?

    No, that is a last resort only. Boot off of you Tiger DVD (or the one that came with your computer). After the first screen where you select "English" stop there. Go to the Utilities menu and select Disk Utility. Select your MacOS volume on the left and click on the First Aid tab. Now click "Repair Volume (Disk). After the repair is done, click the Verify button.

    You may want to consider getting Alsoft DiskWarrior as it is much more complete in doing disk/volume repairs than Disk Utility. In many cases, it can fix problems that Disk Utility can not.

    Ditto. Disk Warrior has gotten me out of many a jam. Indisposable for your kit and it should help here.

    Does the same fix work for Panther 10.3.9?

    I don't receive the entire warning that was pictured, just the Incorrect Valence (-61) from Tech Tools.... will the fix described for Tiger also work on my Panther 10.3.9 Powerbook? Also- can I upgrade to Leopard straight from Panther, or do I need to buy all of the newer versions to get there? (I'm hopin' to be able to have someone at the Apple store do that, as I don't have alot of $$ to upgrade...) I'd appreciate your help- Thanks
