[Solved] Is there any tool yet that repairs APFS containers?
So it seems that something is wrong with the snapshots on the SSD of my MacBook Pro - migrated to APFS via normal upgrade going from 10.12 to 10.13. It is now on 10.14.2. (I’ve never previously needed to do a clean install.)
Disk Utility, via Recovery mode, gives me the error below. ie. It can’t fix it.
I have a suspicion I might need to do a clone, wipe the drive, then clone back?
There is not such a tool so far, so no upgrade to High Sierra or Mojave is recommended. This is a deal breaker!
BTW, the fact that Disk Utility reports operation successful with tick on green circle WHEN THE DISK HAS PROBLEMS NOT FIXED is shocking and terrifying. Mostly when you consider that error details only show if you click the expanding arrowhead triangle on left (Show Details). And that even then, you may not notice such error lines, since they are not highlighted in red color or otherwise. NOT GOOD.
I suggested not using Migration Assistant because I have had problems with it in the past, not copying some files and --worst of all-- not warning about it (I noticed the issue because the copied size was quite different and smaller than the one of source booting disk) that SuperDuper copied perfectly.
As far as I know, Migration Assistant may generate such issues when there is some kind of problem with the source disk. It works OK if the disk is fine, but may not work well otherwise, and you may not know. Thus, I use SuperDuper, just in case.
On the other hand, are you using the latest macOS 10.14.2 (18C54) version? Which version of Disk Utility?
