View Full Version : (Bad) Root Creation Dates

08-02-2005, 06:18 PM
After I run SD, the target volume, regardless of whether it is internal or (FW) external, it is necessary that the "Root creation date be repaired". At least that is the report I always get upon a subsequent run of DiskWarrior 3.0.3. FWIW, the DiskWarrior repair always works.

Indeed, I would hate to have a bad Root Creation date (whatever that is; no one wants bad roots).

Huh? Anything I'm doing wrong? Or, should I just fageddaboudit?

You know, we use Disk Utility behind the scenes to erase the drive, and that creates the "root creation date". Why Disk Warrior always says it's wrong is beyond me -- Apple did it.

In any case, it doesn't hurt anything...

That works for me Dave. Thanks for the prompt reply, it is truly appreciated!

No problem, Pendragon.
