Re: Big Fan of DiskWarrior.....

Thanks to everyone who replied.  I'm still confused about what circumstances are best for DW or Data Rescue 3.  I was in a panic so not the facts are to the best of my knowledge:

Hitachi Deskstar 7200rpm 2 TB (HGST 2TB Deskstar 3.5" SATA II Internal Desktop Hard Drive)

Newertech Guardian Maxiumus Raid 1

-- hide signature --

I think I ran DR3 and not sure it recognized the drive.

Then I purchased DW, ran it, and it did not recognize/see the drive.

Ran Stellar Phoenix Mac Recovery but it didn't even see the drive.

Then Ran DR3 and somehow the quick search mode found the drive as "External USB 2"

and has now recovered 1.3 TB of 1.9 TB onto a brand new spare Deskstar 2TB.

My question is:  when is DW useful?  I read an apple forum discussion about disk "not readable

by this computer" and they absolutely recommended DW as a solution to the same problem.

Thank god for DR3.  I feel I wasted my $108 on DW.

How is it useful if it doesn't even see the drive?
