What do you use in place of DiskWarrior to repair data for APFS?

I used diskwarrior for all of our older machines before APFS formatting came out. now I can’t use it.

What do you recommend to repair data now since diskwarrior doesn’t work anymore for APFS drives?

There is a lot of misinformation and confusion on this topic. Currently, no utility can rebuild the directory of APFS disks on Mac. That includes DiskWarrior (the best in the repair arsenal), TechTool Pro (second choice) and Drive Genius (third choice). Worst of all, macOS versions above 10.12 Sierra re-format disks as APFS, so users are left in the cold. Apple should not do that!!!

The reason is that Apple has not yet released documentation about how to write to such APFS disks, as they did about how to read them by September 2018 (after releasing macOS 10.14 Mojave; a year after releasing APFS for Mac and even before for iOS by March 2017!!!).

• Some developers are clear about it in their web pages, like Prosoft Engineering:

Drive Genius 5. Rebuild utilities are not supported on APFS.

https://www.prosofteng.com/drive-genius-...

• Micromat is misleading:

TechTool Pro. In addition to native Mac drive formats, Mac OS Extended and APFS, Techtool Pro supports testing and repair of MS-DOS (FAT32) and ExFAT formatted volumes.

Techtool Pro can also repair Apple's new APFS file system, standard Mac OS Extended volumes, as well as MS-DOS (FAT32) and ExFAT formatted volumes.

But says part of the truth in the small print:

**Note: Optimization for APFS rotational drives is not yet possible with the current amount of APFS documentation provided by Apple, which currently provides insufficieant documentation for defragmenting a disk.

And the whole truth in their forum:

APFS formatting. No utility can fully support APFS at the moment, both because APFS is itself a work-in-progress, and Apple has yet to release documentation for it for developers. What is needed is documentation at least as detailed as the one for the HFS+ filesystem.

• Alsoft (DriveWarrior) is completely misleading and wrong:

Using DiskWarrior 5.2 while started (booted) from High Sierra or Mojave. What's in the works. The next major release of DiskWarrior will include the ability to rebuild APFS disks. Apple has recently released the APFS format documentation. Our developers are now using that documentation to update DiskWarrior to be able to safely rebuild APFS disks.

https://www.alsoft.com/DiskWarrior/mojav...

 That is FALSE. They CANNOT release a new version of DiskWarrior to rebuild directory of APFS until Apple releases the full documentation. Clearly, they do not want to reveal the plain truth, since their living depends on that! Alsoft should not do it!!! Customers deserve the truth!

 SO, THE CONCLUSION IS THAT SOME DEVELOPERS ARE NOT TELLING THE PLAIN TRUTH, BUT AT LEAST ONE IS. IT IS IMPORTANT TO SEND FEEDBACK TO APPLE SO THAT THEY RELEASE DOCUMENTATION ABOUT HOW TO WRITE TO APFS DISKS AS THEY HAVE DONE ABOUT HOW TO READ THEM. THEN AND ONLY THEN THE REPAIR UTILITIES WILL BE RELEASED TO REBUILD THE DIRECTORY OF APFS DISKS:

First off, thank you for the information provided in the post above. Very helpful.

Second, I have also been looking for a replacement for Disk Warrior and happened to check the Stellar website. I've used Stellar Data Recovery in the past and had really good luck with the product. While the post linked below does not mention rebuilding the directory of an APFS drive, it does say you can use Apple’s Disk Utility to “repair” them.

https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/how-to-...

Is "rebuilding" with Disk Warrior and "repairing" with Disk Utility the same? Similar?

Finally, I'm curious if you have an opinion on Stellar Data Recovery? Is this a product you would consider purchasing or are you still holding out for Alsoft to update Disk Warrior?

Thank you in advance for your help and have a great day!

I personally use Drive Genius 5.x

See if the free Demo allows you to fix the drive. You’ll want to create a bootable external drive to run it from or setup a BootWell drive.

I haven’t needed to fix a APFS formatted HDD or SSHD drive so I’m not sure if it will work. I don’t see any notes saying it won’t, here’s how: How to run repair on a drive

Do keep in mind SSD drives can encounter issues that can’t be fixed as unlike a spinning disk which has tracks and sectors that can get messed up they use direct block access.

Once you get the drive fixed make a backup and then either run the defragment tool or reformat the drive and install a fresh OS onto it then recover your data from the backup (TimeMachine) being the better one.

thanks so much, but i just read this on their site about APFS - macOS 10.13+ Users: The Defragment, Repartition, and Rebuild utilities are not supported on APFS and a Separate Boot Drive is needed to perform Physical Check and Speed Test.

So repair is working?

Hi,

Diskwarrior 5.2 recognises APFS drives but can’t repair them just yet. I think you should wait a until they come up with a newer version of their App, otherwise you will have to find other alternatives (which may be great, even perfect but not as perfect as DW). Although, you could still repair all your HFS+ formatted drives and that is something that wouldn’t really be difficult even in an APFS formatted Mac.

unfortunately I can't wait for diskwarrior. i'm in need of something much sooner to repair the data on the disk for our customer

this is the error message I'm getting when trying to perform FSCK or first aid on the disk

"macbook first aid volume could not be verified completely"

I've tested the drive itself in DRIVEDX and it has 100% health. it's a 1 month old seagate firecuda 1 TB SSHD. It's running the most up to date version of Mojave. I think her data is corrupt, because i've moved the drive to multiple MacBooks and get the same error.

I'd like to repair the data, because if I send her a new install of OS-X, then she moves her data over, we'll have the same issue again.

Is there anything else I can do?

Sounds like you're hitting a clone issue here!

How about using Apples tools instead!

Use TimeMachine to create a backup and then restore to a fresh drive to double check to see if the corruption is resolved. I'f possible format the test drive HFS+ so you can then use the better tools. Once you feel confident the spare drive is good, reformat the Seagate and re-install macOS as needed. I would strongly recommend you use Migration Assistant.

And lastly find all of your cloning apps and throw them all away!
