    Disk Warrior problem
    I bought Disk Warrior for my MacBook. However, when I select my hard drive to "rebuild," it says it can't rebuild it because it's the startup disk. Is there a workaround for this? It will check files, etc. but just won't rebuild. TIA.

    Pop in the DiskWarrior CD, and reboot holding down 'C" immediately after the chimes. be patient and let it load and then select your hard drive and click rebuild. As DW advises it is not possible to rebuild a disc (hard drive) you are booted from.

    Thank you! I was not holding down the "C" key after the chime. Did it and it worked great... my drive graph is 100%. Thanks again. Have a great week!
