Does anyone know how to resolve "PEOF" erors? Disk First Aid can't do it,
so is Norton utilities the answer? I should have it anyway, but money is tight...etc. (I use FWB & Conflict Catcher). This isn't the first time it has happened; is there a way to prevent it?

thanks

Robert

Het rcp,

DiskWarrior from Alsoft would be your best bet for an I-can't -afford-anything-else solution. Premature-End-of-File errors typically occur after directory damage and nothing beats DW for fixing directories.

you can buy versions of NDD on ebay for about 10 bucks NIB.

Whoa! The NDD version MUST be compatible with you OS. Using the wrong version can ruin you! Mostly out of date versions of NUM are for sale on eBay. What OS are you running?

Tim, you know better than to not qualify your response.

Well for OS 8.6 you don't need NUM 6; 5.03 will do. Maybe even 4.xx will work but I can't remember for sure. Check Symantec's site. Don't buy 3.X for sure!

Yeah, I tried 3.x, but no go. I'll search around for a Norton suite; it's time I made the investment.

a PEOF is a corrupted file.

all these apps can help prevent this from occurring....there's not much to be done once it has happened. If you need to scavenge whatever you can get from such files, about the only thing that is useful is CanOpener.

Nothing needed to salvage, but I do want to clean it up, take preventative
measures, etc.
Norton Utilities or Disk Warrior? Any preferences? MacWorld said that DW is better for low-level corruption.
