AppleJack is a command-line utility that makes a number of troubleshooting procedures available via single-user mode at startup. And, perhaps more importantly to the typical user, it makes these procedures easy to perform. After installing AppleJack — you should print out the ReadMe file during installation so you have a copy handy — it simply becomes part of the single-user mode interface: AppleJack FREE – donations

DiskWarrior 4 – OSX 10.3.9 – 10.5

DiskWarrior turns ten years old in fall of 2008, and in the past decade, no other utility has come close to challenging its prowess at repairing disk-directory problems. DiskWarrior 4 () is no exception. The long-awaited Intel-native version of the utility adds features for ferreting out corrupted preference files, repairing OS X permissions, repairing and rebuilding access control lists, and repairing more types of disk problems than previous versions could handle. DiskWarrior remains as valuable today as it ever was.—ROB GRIFFITHS Alsoft; $100 OSX 10.3.9 – 10.5
