I bought Disk Warrior and used it 4 times successfully. Then it started telling me, before replacing the directories, that to insure a failsafe replacement, that I needed to delete 98mb of 'contiguous' space for it to do so. Neither Alsoft nor Apple can tell me how to accomplish this. Alsoft tells me I can buy their optimizer and this will take care of the situation. Sounds like a scam to me. Their current Optimizer Plus works only if one has classic 9 installed. I deleted that for "contiguous space" as I never use it and see no reason that I ever would. Disk Warrior worked fine after that for one session. Now it tells me I need to delete 100mb of contiguous space to insure their failsafe replacement. If my power is interrupted during the 20 seconds it takes to replace, I lose everything on my hard drive.
