Diskwarrior- Hard drive Recovery for Mac

It's been a while since I posted because the studio has been crazy busy but I figured I'd spend a few minutes to give a shout out to a great company.  In the 12 years since starting my Toronto Studio - Morph Productions, I've been fortunate to not have a major hard drive problem on the studio computer.  Just in case though I do have two separate back up systems (both hardware and software) in case something does though.  I have had problems with personal hard drives of no consequence and I have to tell you that Alsoft's Disk Warrior can provide minor miracles.

The real reason I'm writing this post though is to give these guys a shout out because their tech support is incredible.  The first time I had an issue with a drive I bought Disk Warrior to see if it would fix it.  It didn't and I thought to myself, "that was a quick way to lose a hundred bucks".  I read in the instructions that if DW can't solve an issue you can contact tech support for further help.  They really aren't kidding!  What followed was about 2 hours of on the phone tech support that easily should have costed me hundreds of dollars.  They ended up fixing my problem and no data was lost.  Incredible!

Just recently I had a backup drive fail in the midst of me reinstalling everything on my sons computer and sure enough DW tech support came to the rescue with about an hour of tech support.  These guys should really be commended for all the help they offer people.  I can't say enough good things about them.  Hard drive space is cheap so always have backups but if you need a drive fixed check out Disk Warrior.
