Limitations

With AppleJack you can troubleshoot a computer even if you can't load the GUI, or don't have a startup CD handy. AppleJack runs in Single User Mode and is menu-based for ease of use.

Using AppleJack, you can repair your disk, repair permissions, validate the system's preference files, and get rid of possibly corrupted cache files. In most cases, these operations can help get your machine back on track. The important thing is that you don't need another startup disk with you. All you need to do is restart in Single User Mode (SUM), by holding down the command and s keys at startup, and then typing applejack, or applejack auto (which will run through all the tasks automatically), or applejack auto restart (which will also restart the computer automatically at the end of the process).

"Install it when you DON'T have problems, and use it when you DO."

You can't install Applejack when the computer is having serious problems. You have to install it when the sun is shining (i.e. the computer is working properly).!Otherwise, you have to use single-user mode and run the fsck routine. But much easier to use Applejack instead, so install it while you can.

Pros
  • Small, free, effective.
Cons
  • Nees to reassure would-be installers more clearly which OS versions it'll work with
