Mac OS X 10.4: Don't use Tech Tool Deluxe 3.0.3's Volume Structure repair

Do not use the Volume Structure repair function of Tech Tool Deluxe 3.0.3 on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger volumes. It is not compatible with the file system. If you need to repair a 10.4.x volume, use Disk Utility instead.

A "Failed (Error = -64)" message may appear, and other issues can occur, such as a kernel panic message appearing during start up.

Tech Tool Deluxe 3.0.4 has been released and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger volumes.

Important: If you received Tech Tool Deluxe 3.0.3 with an AppleCare Protection Plan, and are experiencing these symptoms after using Volume Structure repair, contact AppleCare for information about receiving version 3.0.4.
