Good Disk Utility/Permissions Repair Utilityfor Mini w/o DVD drive
Posted 15 February 2013 - 07:07 AM
During a large file transfer, the power went out briefly due to the wind, and now my file permissions are all screwed up. iTunes thinks the library is on a locked disk and wont open, and the administrator has been removed from all file access.
I need a good utility to rebuild the permissions (i've tried OS X's disk utility, and it finds all sorts of errors and repairs them....
and then i do the repair again and it does it again, and again... ive run it about 12 times now and its still finding things.
I used to use Disk Warrior, and it worked great - is there a version of Disk Warrior that works on a Lion-based DVD-driveless Mini?

I have to say that I switched to TechTool, though, since DiskWarrior has shown a propensity to be out of date (and not being able to boot) always when I needed it. TechTool seems to be a bit more regularly updated and also works great for me.
Other than that: have you also tried to repair not only the permissions with the Disk Utility, but the whole disk? You'll have to boot from the Recovery Partition to do that, though.

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.
