Occasionally I use Disk Warrior 4.1 (monthly) to check my drives for errors. It seems like every-time I check my external HD (the one I clone to) has errors reported by DW, when the internal HD does not. I can repair the errors with DW, however if I clone again right afterwards and run DW I get errors that again I can repair with DW.

Is that normal?

Thank you,

Those errors (typically "link creation time" and "root creation date mismatch") are not significant to the operation of the volume, and refer to "impedance mismatches" between the old OS9 file system and the newer OSX ways of accessing the volume. Nothing to worry about.

And this is why I use SD with 100% confidence...

Thank you so very much for a wonderful product and support!
