From my own experience, this version has been a mess under Mac OS 9.2.2 on an iMac G3 600MHz. It reports all kinds of errors that I invariably responded to by fixing and those fixes appear to do nothing but create resulting problems requiring a disk format.

I tested thoroughly on two bootable volumes on the internal drive and external Firewire drive before leaving this report. Anyone considering this for Mac OS 9.2.x might want to consider version 6 which I have not tested.

The other remark I want to make concerns a component of this software called FileSaver. It has a habit of continuously running, making any drive to be perpetually reading contents and in my opinion this does nothing but reduce a drive's lifetime. Perhaps I didn't setup FileSaver correctly but out of the box this is the behavior I found.
