TOPIC: TTPro 11 can't repair volume

TTPro 11 can't repair volume 24 Jul 2019 10:40 #11269

TTPro 11 (from eDrive) indicates problem with fsroot tree on my boot drive. Volume structures test gives error result 8. (I had also gotten error result 9 prior to creating eDrive and running from eDrive.) Disk utility error is below. Attempts to repair didn't work. What should I try now? System is High Sierra.

Disk utility error was:

Thanks for your clear and detailed report.

I am not certain what else can be done in terms of repair. Please send your report to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . You will receive a reply by email. At the least, the programmers may be able to give an indication of how serious the diagnosis of an invalid snapshot is. It may be possible to delete the defective snapshot, but I cannot provide guidance on that.

In the meantime, it would be a good idea to run the Surface Scan to check the drive for unremapped bad blocks. Thank you.
