Using DiskWarrior 5.0 while started (booted) from macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

 

• What you need to know

1) DiskWarrior 5.0 is compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

2) Mac OS Extended (HFS Plus) disks can be rebuilt as before. This includes Fusion and Time Machine disks.

3) Apple File System (APFS) disks are not recognized by DiskWarrior 5.0 and will not appear in the list of disks.

4) Due to the ever enhancing security of macOS you will need to first "Allow" the system extension portion of DiskWarrior to be loaded on your Mac. The first time you rebuild a disk with DiskWarrior 5.0, the system extension will be blocked at step 8 of the rebuild. This will result in a "OS X services failure" message in the DiskWarrior report. You will only need to allow the system extension once.

 

SystemExtensionBlocked

 

This message above will be displayed followed by the DiskWarrior report as shown below.

 

OSXServicesFailure

 

Follow the instructions in the System Extension Blocked message to allow the DiskWarrior system extension software to be loaded. Open the Security & Privacy System Preference and click the lock and then click the Allow button.

 

SecurityPrivacyAllow

 

Quit DiskWarrior, relaunch DiskWarrior and rebuild again.

 

• What can you expect soon

We are working furiously to release DiskWarrior 5.1. The flooding from Hurricane Harvey resulted in a loss of 3 weeks of productivity for our developers. DiskWarrior 5.1 will more gracefully deal with APFS and the new KEXT security as follows:

1) APFS disks will display in the list of disks. APFS disks cannot be rebuilt with DiskWarrior 5.1. Our developers are waiting for Apple to release the final APFS format documentation in order to safely rebuild APFS disks.

2) The system extension "OS X services failure" message from DiskWarrior 5.0 has been replaced with instructions on how to allow the kext to be loaded. This will happen as DiskWarrior 5.1 is launched instead of during a rebuild. You will only need to allow the system extension once.

 

• What's in the works

The next major release of DiskWarrior will include the ability to rebuild APFS disks.

 

Using DiskWarrior Recovery Maker 1.1 while started (booted) from macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

 

• What you need to know

1) DiskWarrior Recovery Maker 1.1 is compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra when the High Sierra startup (boot) disk is formatted as Mac OS Extended (HFS Plus). Creating a 10.13 recovery flash drive will not allow DiskWarrior to rebuild APFS disks.

2) DiskWarrior Recovery Maker 1.1 is not compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra when the High Sierra startup (boot) disk is formatted as Apple File System (APFS). The APFS Recovery Disk is not recognized and will not show as a source from which to build a recovery disk.

 

• What can you expect soon

DiskWarrior Recovery Maker 1.2 will be released soon. It will be compatible with both HFS Plus and APFS startup disks.
