With a fresh Tiger installation, complete with Xcode and the CHUD tools, travelling appeared "no worky" on my Powerbook 17" (1GHz/1GB).
Travelled - needed disk utility an d Disk Warrior to get it back to life.
Travelled - same story.
Decided to run Drive 10 to get it fixed and be able to further troubleshoot.
Drive 10 is s-l-o-w.
Scanning the drive took from 8 last night until... well, I went to bed at 1 a.m. and it was far from finished. So I don't really know.
My 60GB disk is in the repairing stage since this morning early. We're now some 13 hours underway. Now Task 5 of 6, step 3.343.345 of 4,749,657.
IF I'm lucky, I might expect it to finish with this task somewhere after 18+ hours from start repair.
Seriously.. then it's 30 hours+ underway.
The I hope
- that everything is recovered properly
- all possible bad blocks are flagged
- all remaining blocks are tested good
If Drive 10 can do all that.
If not, going for my backup and doing an Archive & Install is the way out. Saves me at least in excess of 28 hours compared with Drive 10.
And it gets more tempting by the hour.
