Please for the love of pasta, do NOT use Diskwarrior on your Mavericks drives! Destruction of your precious data will result!

 

DW 4.4 Ruined my Time Machine backup disk! DW 4.4 errored out and left my precios time machine disk useless along with all the data.

 

Do NOT use DW or you will be very sad...

    DiskWarrior 4.4 is fine on Mavericks drives, if you are using the correct version. The problem is probably that you used DiskWarrior on a Time Machine disk. I have always had bad results using disk utilties on a Time Machine disk because of the way Time Machine stores the files.
