    You need Disk Warrior, and you need it RIGHT NOW. You can buy it online or from your local Mac dealer.

    DON'T do anything else to that disk until you get and run Disk Warrior.

    For backing up your external drive to another (external) drive , you can use SuperDuper! or Carbon Copy Cloner.

    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
