Norton Utilities

8.0.2
29 February 2004

Disk repair and data recovery utilities; discontinued.

Overview

Symantec's Norton Utilities maximizes your computer's performance. It finds and repairs disk problems at the click of a button, and can alert you to potential problems before they cause trouble. Lost a file through a disk problem or accidental deletion? Norton Utilities can rebuild damaged disks, then help you identify and recover vital files. It also improves hard drive performance by defragmenting and organizing files more efficiently. Now all components run natively on Mac OS X, and you can boot the Norton Utilities CD into either Mac OS X or Mac OS 9 during disk emergencies.

It works, period. As have ALL previous versions (beta or not) of Norton, on my Macs, over the years. MANY years, never been bitten by Norton Util's.

they were quite good for Classic. Since OSX, they are a pain in the back. Avoid them if you don't want to corrupt your disks :-(

Symantec is showing its poor commitment to Mac users' needs by having no longer upgraded Norton Utilities for Mac. That's why I no longer upgraded Norton Antivirus and I suggest everybody does the same.

Really, Norton Utilities 8.0 don't work Panther 10.3.9. I don't recommend.

Now that Panther is 10.3.7, live update fails to work and Personal privacy control fails to work. I have used Norton Utilities for years and years. Guess the end of the line is with 802.

I've used every version of Norton Utilities for Macintosh starting with 3.0 or 4.0 up to 8.0. and never had trouble. Disk Doctor worked. Then I got 8.0. It, too, worked for months without a flaw on 3 different drives. Then, on a drive it seemed fully compatible with, one day the drive unmounted while I was "fixing" it from the booted Norton 8.0 CD. There were some files not backed up, but under 5-10%, and no problem to replace. An Apple Authorized Dealer's repair person, who I believe, took the machine it was on & thoroughly tested it, then reported (in effect), "I can see the drive but it's flawed & not worth repairing". So, in my case, was it sick drive, sick Disk Doctor, or.....? But I'm sticking with DiskWarrior in the future, even though it repaired the drive's directory just before I ran Norton Utilities, and pronounced the repair successful.

Anybody FOOLISH enough to install ANYTHING that has the Norton name on it deserves all of the headaches that WILL undoubtedly come! Norton stopped even supporting their hacky, crappy software a few months ago for 10.3...these hacks shouldn't even be allowed to sell for OS X if they aren't going to support If I could give minus scores for value and stability I would! There are a few other utilities out there worth the $...this is not one of them!

IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE UNLUCKY PEOPLE WHO NO LONGER SEES ANY OF THEIR HARD DRIVES IN ANY NORTON TOOLS, HERE IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYERS! ENABLE YOUR ROOT USER ACCOUNT (APPLICATIONS>UTILITIES>NETINFO MANAGER. LOG OUT. LOG IN AS ROOT. REINSTALL (THERE IS NO NEED TO UNINSTALL FIRST). YOU'LL BE INSTRUCTED TO RESTART. DO IT. LOG IN USING YOUR NORMAL ACCOUNT. EVERYTHING SHOULD WORK AT THIS POINT!
