Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

Norton Disk Doctor 3.2.1

Send Article to a Friend

Norton Disk Doctor 3.2.1 -- Symantec has released a patch for Norton Disk Doctor 3.2 to address an incompatibility with the Custom Partitioning feature in FWB's Hard Disk Toolkit. Apparently Norton Disk Doctor 3.2 will incorrectly diagnose problems on disks with certain custom partition sizes, then attempt to repair those problems. Only users of the Custom Partitioning feature in any version of Hard Disk ToolKit are affected; if you don't use that feature (or use a different disk formatting package from Apple or another vendor) you don't need this update. Please note that Symantec has apparently moved its Web server in the last few days; if the first URL doesn't work, try the one with the raw IP number. Symantec has posted the updater in MacBinary format. [GD]
