    Yesterday I turn on my computer, and one of four of my partitions didn't mount. So I open Disk Utililty and mount it. I notice that a LOT of files and folders are missing, so I try to repair the drive with Disk Utility. It repaired it partially, some missing files were put into a "lost+found" folder, but there's still like 2000 files missing. I tried to use Disk Utility again and here's what it showed:

    Repairing disk for “Storage”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Invalid leaf record count
    (It should be 158 instead of 168)
    Checking Catalog file.
    Checking multi-linked files.
    Checking Catalog hierarchy.
    Invalid volume directory count
    (It should be 57929 instead of 57592)
    Invalid volume file count
    (It should be 220546 instead of 218918)
    Checking volume bitmap.
    Volume Bit Map needs minor repair
    Checking volume information.
    Invalid volume free block count
    (It should be 8017403 instead of 7994057)

    Repairing volume.
    The volume Storage was repaired successfully.
    Repair attempted on 2 volumes
    1 HFS volume repaired
    1 volume could not be repaired​

    Do you guys have any idea of how I can try to get my other files back? I was thinking about using DiskWarrior or TechTool Pro, but I don't wanna spend like $100 on software if it's gonna end up being a waste of money.

    What do you guys think?

    I'm using OS 10.3.4

    DiskWarrior took care of my problems that DiskUtility could not.

    I highly recommend it.
