Intel Mac :: Disc Utility Says It Has Repaired "X" But When Immediately Rerun Says The Same

Apr 29, 2012

I run "repair pemissions" - it says it has repaired seven items. Without doing anything else, I immediately repeat the repair - with the same result.

I reboot and run "verify permissions" - same seven items are "unrepaired". Can anyone tell me what exactly "repair permissions does"? I'm running OS X 10.7.3 on a 2.16 GHz core 2 iMac

MacBook Pro :: Disk Utility Says The Volume Needs To Be Repaired

Apr 24, 2012

On one of our MacBook Pros (Late-2011), running the latest OS X 10.7.3, Disk Utility says the volume needs to be repaired. When I use Disk Utility from the Recovery HD, it says the volume appears to be OK. I verified by using fsck in single-user mode, and it found no problems either. Which do I believe? Is this a sign of a soon-to-fail hard drive?

Power Mac G5 :: Fatal Hardware Error To Disk Utility / Repaired System After Crash

Dec 30, 2007

Started G5, got a question mark. Rebooted from disk. Tried to repair. Told me it could not exit and complete repair to HD. Restarted again. This time everything in utility window red. Message is Fatal Hardware error to disk utility. Back-up if not completely failed and replace with new drive.

Not great at behind the scenes with my mac. Does this mean a shop visit. Any estimate on cost to me. Had lots of Macs. This is the first to crash and burn and its not that old.

Intel Mac :: WD My Passport Won't Let Me Copy Data To It On It

May 24, 2012

I backup my photography on a WD My Passport. I have only used PC's with this in the past, I am now trying to back up some more files and it won't let me copy them to the drive. The permissions say that I have read only access on my Mac. I have read some threads, and they all say that I have format the hard drive to change the permissions and that I will not be able to copy over files bigger than 4G. I have RAW files that can get quite large so limiting the size is an option.

Intel Mac :: Error: This Disk Needs To Be Repaired

Mar 11, 2012

Since a week or 3 my Imac is bleeping whenever the harddisk is put to work. Before this it was impossible to make a time machine copy, it would hang at a certain point. I recently did a disk utility scan which could not be finished (aborted by the system) as it was saying (translated from Dutch):  

"Volume-information being checked Wrong amount of free blocks on this volume (Has to be 38684126 in stead of 38684119)The volume 'Macintosh HD' is damaged and need to be repaired.Error: this disk needs to be repaired. Restart system with another disk (like Mac OS X-installdisk) and use disk utility to repair this disk." 

So I put the installdisk 1 in, but the Imac spits it out, refuses to start up in harddisk repair mode or any other mode at all. It just spits it out and starts as usual. Install disk 2 it doesnt spit out, but I can only open a read me file. Like said, the Imac works fine, except that it is guided by literaly hundreds of beeps in high and low, short and long. I feel like being at a supermarket having my items scanned. That is what it sounds like. It is quite vocal but annoying and seem to multiply every day. In the beginning it only did at start up just a few beeps, then it got more, and now it beeps also in sleep mode.  

I cannot do a disk repair, also not with the latest OS X update (snowleopard, since Lion is not working on my 1GB drive). I do notice though that the difference in this error code is getting bigger, it used to be just one block difference, now it is 7.    

Also I took the memory modules out yesterday and put them back in, as I heard this can also help get rid of the beeps. It did not solve anything at all.I can't find anything on this problem on internet, because all beep related topics are about the error codes for the RAM drives. These are not the same sounds.  Another attempt was to install the cms program to avoid overheating fans. Also no improvement.

Intel Mac :: HD Found Corrupt And Needs To Be Repaired - Install Disk Internal Or On CD?

Apr 17, 2012

I am having a very slow running iMac on snow leopard 10.6.8, and using disk utility, am being told the disk needs to be repaired.

Error: This disk needs to be repaired. Start up your computer with another disk (such as your Mac OS X installation disc), and then use Disk Utility to repair this disk. The volume Macintosh HD was found corrupt and needs to be repaired.

Missing thread record (id = 1322757) Incorrect number of thread records
Invalid volume file count (It should be 880464 instead of 880473)

So I need to find my installation disk, and my question is: is this installation disk internal, somewhere within the iMac, or is in on a physical cd somewhere in my mess?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Use OS X Install CD To Get To Disc Utility

Sep 28, 2010

So I need to start my MBP up in OS X but i currently have windows selected to start up everytime through bootcamp. Problem is I don't have a serial key and I'm stuck at the authorization prompt. At this point I don't even care to use windows anymore I just want to get back to my Mac. Which brings me to the subject of the post: I've read that you can choose which partition to use at startup from the Disc Utility and I've tried to access this by inserting my OS X install disc and holding down the "C" key during startup. All this does for me is add a few seconds to Windows boot up time. Also, I've tried holding the "Alt/Option" key at startup to get to the disk selection menu but all this does is bring up a grey screen with a Lock on it and a password field. The admin password I made when I installed OS X definitely doesn't work and no serial numbers I've typed in works either. As a last ditch effort I tried changing the firmware password through Single-User Mode, but holding down "CMD+S" during startup does nothing for me either. Could it be that no Mac startup commands work when Windows is trying to boot up?

Intel Mac :: Disk Warrior Reported A Damaged Resource Header That Cannot Be Repaired?

Jul 2, 2012

Disk Warrior reported a damaged resource header that cannot be repaired. The resource header is in an "older" file format (rsrc). I have been having fairly frequent freezes of the system and Disk Utility reporting a corrupted HD which Disk Unility is always able to repair and report the HD to be O.K. Could the damaged header be the cause of the freezes?  If so, can anything be done about it if Warrior says it cannot be repaired?

OS X :: Disk Utility Cannot See Internal Hard Disc

Jun 5, 2009

I have had a problem for about a month whereby my MBP won't shut down, it just hangs after it has cleared the desktop and only the wallpaper is displayed. Now disk utility won't see the disk at all, and Software Update also does not find any updates. It checks for new software for ever. My mac starts up fine, and I can use it as normal.

OS X :: How To Use Disc Utility And Format It By Choosing The FAT Option

Sep 19, 2009

I have a Kingston 1gb usb drive. I know how to use disc utility and format it by choosing the FAT option, but it never works correctly for me. I can use the drive on my Mac fine, but whenever I plug it into a PC it states that the drive needs to be reformatted. my only access to a PC is at school, and the permissions do not allow me to reformat the usb drive on those computers. I don't understand why my Mac can't just format it correctly for PC use..

OS X :: When Use Disc Utility And Install Cd Will Lost Hdd Information

Aug 8, 2010

I recently updated my system to Snow Leopard which worked fine. Then I tried to upgrade some software the computer will not reboot. I have tried resetting the Pram but no luck. I can boot to the cd however it doesn't see the HDD. I can boot to an external HDD but I'm not able to mount the original HDD. Disk aid will not repair the HDD. I tried super duper to copy the disc and reinstall but it doesn't see the HDD. The HDD is a SSD drive. I need to at least be able to copy the information from this drive. However I am stuck at this point.

If I use disk utility and the source is my install cd and the destination the HDD will I lose all my information?

OS X Yosemite :: Disc Utility Uses Wrong Language

Dec 5, 2014

I just bought Macbook from someone who spoke Spanish, and they had the language set to Spanish.  

I changed the language to English under the "language and region," setting in system preferences, and Mac Os seems to be all in English.  

However, when I restart the computer and enter disc utility, the language is still in Spanish, and I can't figure out how to change it. 

In the upper right hand corner there is a US flag that says, "Estadounidense", but I don't know if it this is a country or language setting.  How I can change Disc Utility to English?

OS X :: Disc Utility Fails On New Internal Macbook Hard Drive?

Sep 5, 2009

I just upgraded my MacBooks hard drive and put in the install cd to restore from my time machine backup. Evedything went smoothly until I chose the new hard drive as the destination for the restore. I was told that the install failed to erase the hard drive and to restart and try again. So I did but when I try to erase or partition the drive, there is an error and it fails. The hard drve seems fine since it can be seen by disc utility but after it fails to partition or erase, it disappears from the disc utility forcing me to restart. The process I've done about 5 times now is boot the comp, choose time machine restore, then while the install is calculating the space the restore would require and searching for discs to install on, nothing shows up so I go to disc utility and try to erase or partition the drive only for it to fail and disappear from disc utility. At this point I hold down the power button to turn it off and restart the process.

The first time I tried, the restore process saw the drive while calculating the restores size requirements and allowed me to go the next step where it would automatically try to erase the hard drive (without me having to go into disc utility myself) but after the first try, it just says "searching for disks" and so I go into disc utility myself where I can see the disk.
