  • DiskWarrior is at minute 1:22. But the problem is Apple not releasing documentation about how to write to APFS disks:

    DiskWarrior 5.2 & Apple File System (APFS)
    What’s in the works
    The next major release of DiskWarrior will include the ability to rebuild APFS disks. Apple has recently released the “Read” portion of the APFS format documentation. Our developers are now waiting for the “Write” portion of documentation to update DiskWarrior to be able to safely rebuild Apple File System (APFS) disks.

    Please, send feedback to Apple about it:

  • also, one other little comment.   I know the command-plus/minus is a pretty far under the hood shortcut in the finder… and what I’m about to mention is probably one of those things everyone knows… but command-1, command-2, command-3 and command-4 are quick ways to go between icon, list, column, and gallery view.  True, the shortcuts are there in big letters on the top of the “view” menu… but it’s not really a shortcut until you use it… (if a tree falls in the woods…) and that’s a set of key commands I use on a daily basis…
