HD probs on 7600; Norton can't fix...
I wrote a few weeks ago about trouble with my apps not working and hard disk space seemingly disappearing on my Powermac 7600, running OS 9.0. I got Norton Disk Dr. and it fixed a number of problems but I'm getting messages about major errors concerning extent B-trees and crosslinked files and the master directory block. After running Disk Dr. the OS wouldn't start up so I did a clean install, so the machine now works, but I'm still getting the same messages when I run DD.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Is the HD damaged or do I need to do a do a reformatting or reinitializing or something else? Any advice much appreciated!

I get the cross link files error from Norton as well but not on Tech Tool Pro. Norton will fix it but then after some period of time, it crops up again involving another set of files. The Symantec site suggests a formatting problem. I'd have to back up the drive and reinstall everything again and I'm too lazy, at this point, to do it. You should try using TTPro and/or DiskWarrior after Norton. It should provide a better, if temporary fix, until you decide to reformat the drive. ;)
