MacBook Pro :: Lion On Ssd Crashed - Disk Utility 'cannot Repair The Disk'
Fortunately I got a time machine backup. And its restoring the drive while in Lion recovery mode. Here's what happened... I dont have a router a my place at the moment and so my two phones (iphone 4 and htc android) connect to my internet using my MBP's wifi via internet sharig. For some reason they were not able to get an IP from the mbp. After doing some wifi swtich toggles and forgettig & rejoining the network, i decided to reboot all my devices. I shut down my modem, phones and restarted my mbp. On reboot, after the chime, it showed an unsusal 'progress bar' under the apple logo. The bar progressed to about 10% and then the mbp just powered off. This happened several times even after PRAM and SMC reset.  

So now i booted with cmd+r pressed and in recovery mode ran a 'verify disk'. It said the verification stopped and that i should repair the disk. When i tried to do that it said the disk cannot be repaird and that i should back up as many files as possible and attempt to format the disk and restore it with time machine. It is precisely what im doing at the moment.  

1. Mbp wont sleep even when internet sharing is off

2. Mbp wont lit the onboard display upon opening it in clamshell mode until i removed the 3.5mm audio cable of my speakers from the audio out port!

MacBook Air :: MBA Won't Reboot From Remote Disk To Reach Disk Utility And Repair The Disk?
After a routine disk repair session, it advised me that I need to repair the disk on my MBA. A few months ago it was the same, and I did it quite successfully without any problems, according to instructions: inserted the MacOS 10.6 DVD into the iMac optical drive, launched Remote Install OS, and so on. However, now my MacBook Air refuses to boot from the remote disk, so that I can reach the Disk Utility and proceed to repair disk. It sees the remote DVD Installer disk, I connect to my home WiFi, and I choose reboot from the Install DVD disk. An Apple logo appears on a grey screen with a small globe spinning below, but after a some lengthy minutes it always reboots normally!!! It seems I tried everything many times to no avail.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Use Disk Utility To Repair Encrypted Disk Partition
I have run the Disk Utility verify function against my system partition. It tells me there are minor issues that need fixing up and I should run the repair disk function, by booting using Command-R and using the Disk Utility to repair the drive.Problem is, when I boot using Command-R and select Disk Utility the partition is shown greyed out and the Verify and Repair options do not work.I think this could be because the partition is encrypted. The utility does not offer me the chance to unlock the partition with my passphrase.How can I repair the filesystem errors on this partition?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disk Utility Can't Repair Disk (1 Partition) On External Hard Drive
I have a 2TB Western Digital My Book Studio FW800 external that has 5 partitions, connected to my 2011 iMac. I had help doing the partitions and don't really remember the reasoning, but one is just for my SuperDuper! backup, one is Miscellaneous, one for movie clips off my camcorder, one for misc scanned photo's and one for my genealogy research. I back up using Time Machine to a Time Capsule and also to this WD hard drive with SuperDuper! 

Recently I'm getting a pop up message that "Mac OS X can't repair the disk "Genealogy"'.  And it needs to be reformatted.  It's become a read only disk.  When I look in Disk Utility it shows all the partitions as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" EXCEPT for the one in question.  I also noticed that there are a lot of files with "date created" being the same date in 1969!  These files may be letters I've written or photo's I added to that partition within the last few years. 

I think I have to completely reformat the entire external hard drive to repair this, but I want to make sure.  Because it's going to be a major hassle backing it all up to another external (having to get one first) and then figuring out how to make the files that have turned "read only" in that one partition, back to their original state!  Does this sound right, that I have to reformat the entire external hard drive?  And how do I get the read-only files back to their original state.

MacBook Pro :: How Do I Run A Disk Repair From The MAC OS X Install Disk?

MacBook Pro :: Hard Drive Corruption In Disk Utility / Unable To Repair Disk
I'm having an odd error. Disk utilities is reporting my disk is corrupt. I just got the macbook 2010 model with the upgraded non ssd drive.It says its corrupt and I need to do a repair disk through the install disk and it says it cant due to a corruption. But if i run tech tool it says everything is fine. is this because Ilet my batter run out while it was in sleep mode?

I don't think anything is wrong with the computer as it doesnt slow down or freeze, just in disk utils.
should I get Apple to replace the drive?

MacBook Pro :: Restoring To Factory Settings - Erasing Disk And Reinstall Lion Via Internet
I was restoring my MacBook pro to its factory setting by erasing the disk and reinstalling OS X lion via internet. But it is failing telling me that my network is very slow while I used the best network in my area. How should I get an OS X lion to my CP? Is it possible to get it from another MacBook pro? Or is it possible to recover the erased OS X Lion without or with external disc?

Mac Pro :: Need To Repair Disk But Disk Utility Won't Allow?
I live in France and my nearest authorized dealer is 200 miles away, so I've been on the phone with support a couple of times and gone through various hoops.

Two days ago, my hard drive (or CPU?) started acting up. My Macbook Pro (bought May 07, 2.16 GHz, running 10.4.11) took a long time to boot, and then my desktop image appeared as a fragment along the top of the screen. Various processes started to hang the machine, during which time a repetitive sequence of ticking could be heard from inside the machine until whatever was wrong resolved itself. There were no program crashes and in fact the machine operated fine inbetween these hangs. I ran an extended hardware test, no problems there. Disk Utility, however, would not complete its verification, saying "the underlying task reported failure on exit". It stated that the HD needed to be repaired. However, the "repair disk" button was greyed out, disallowing the repair.

TechTool showed the directory scan failed, as did the volume structure test.

I tried numerous times to Safeboot, but the computer crashed (simply turned off suddenly) midway into the boot each time.

Apple Support had me zap the PRAM, clear the caches, and do that 15-second power-button thing with the battery out. All the log-in items that might have been slowing the boot were removed. This succeeded in getting the machine to boot faster and the desktop image returned.

However, both Verify Disk and TechTool showed the same problems, saying the disk needs to be repaired.

I have since backed everything up and would like to try to resolve this myself rather than driving it to the service centre. What are my next steps? I'd like to somehow avoid a clean install and have to reload everything

MacBook Air :: Unwanted Files To Free Up Disk Space - Disk Utility Only Allows To Repair File Permissions
I got a MBA and is there an application like diskcleanup on windows to get rid of temp files and other sort of unwanted files to free up my disk space. Disk utility only allows you to repair file permissions.

Here is the math
MBA - 74.21GB
Used space - 38.2GB
Free space - 36.1GB

But I counted everything I have on my MBA using get info and to adds up to 20GB, I'm sure I can get another 3-5GB free using some app or trick.

MacBook :: Disk Utility Can't Repair Disk
I just saw that the amount of memory left on my HD just dropped around 60GB, so I used the "Verify Disk" option on Disk Utility, and the output was: Verifying volume “Macintosh HD”Performing live verification.Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.Checking extents overflow file.Checking catalog file.Checking multi-linked files.Checking catalog hierarchy.Checking extended attributes file.Checking volume bitmap.Checking volume information.Volume header needs minor repairThe volume Macintosh HD was found corrupt and 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. 

I don't have the disk right now, so is there some other way I can repair it, get another install disk, or anything else? I've been thinking of booting up with a Linux livecd, but can it access the HFS+ filesystem?

Xserve :: Disk Utility Can't Verify Disk Permission And Repair Disk Permission?
I booted up the Leopard 10.5.5 server from the Install Disc, and tried to do disk checks on all drives using Disk Utility.

When the system drive was selected all the "Verify Disk", "Repair Disk", "Verify Disk Permission" and "Repair Disk Permission" functions are able to perform, however, if the non-system drives are selected only "Verify Disk" and "Repair Disk" are able to perform, the "Verify Disk Permission" and "Repair Disk Permission" are GRAYED OUT ! and UNABLE TO perform the permission check and repair!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Macbook Cannot Boot: Hard-disk Repair / Restore Error
My MacBook is unable to boot. Whenever I try to boot, the spinning circle and the progress bar appears on the grey screen, but when the progress bar reaches about 40%, the computer shuts itself down. I started in Verbose Mode and tried AppleJack, and it said my harddisk needs to be repaired; but AppleJack is unable to do that. (Error Messages: "Invalid node structure" and "Incorrect number of thread records) I then tried to startup with both Recovery HD and Mac OS X Install DVD and ran the Disk Utility on both of the startups. At the First Aid tab, I selected my Hard Drive (not the Hitachi one, the Macintosh HD one) and clicked on Repair Disk. The error messages I got from Repair Disk were:Invalid volume file countInvalid node structureThe volume Macintosh HD could not be verified completely.

Error: Disk Utility can't repair this disk..disk, and restore your backed-up files. And, lastly, the following popup message appeared:Disk Utility stopped repairing "Macintosh HD"Disk Utility can't repair this disk. Back up as many of your files as possible, reformat the disk, and restore your backed-up files. Not being sure how to back-up my files using Disk Utility, I plugged in an external HDD to my USB port and clicked on the Restore tab in the Disk Utility. As the Source, I selected Macintosh HD and as the Destination, I selected one of the partitions I created on my external HDD. However, when I clicked on Restore, I got the following error message:Restore FailureCould not restore - Input/output error I partitioned my external HDD by creating 2 partitions formatted in Mac OS Extended Journal - GPT. Now, what can I do to save my files (and my MacBook's HardDisk)?

MacBook :: Disk Utility Can't Repair 2011 - Saying "disk And Restore Your Backed-up Files"?
My Macbook crashed so I tried everything to restart it.  what finally worked is opening it from the install disk.  I performed a "repair disk", and after saying "invalid node structure" and "invalid record count", it says it cannot repair the disk.  I don't know what step to take next.  How do I see if time machine has backed my files up?  Do I need to erase the HD and reinstall?

IMac Intel :: Verify/Repair Disk Corruption - Disk Utility On OS X CD Not Working?
I have an Intel-based iMac that was running on Leopard until a few days ago. My sister-in-law gave me her Snow Leopard upgrade disc, which I ran and successfully upgraded the machine to Snow Leopard.

Over the past few days I have noticed the machine running quite slow, so I ran Disk Utility-->Verify Disk, to which it said the drive was corrupted and needed the utility to run from the OS X disc. I don't have the original iMac discs, and the disc I used to upgrade the machine is no longer in my possession. I tried the OS X disc that came with my MBP, but it didn't work (being from a different machine).

Short of getting the upgrade disc back, any other ideas on how I can run the disc utility or get another set of original discs?

IMac Intel :: Disk Utility Says Harddrive Needs Repair - How To Boot From Original Disk
My iMac has been acting up badly. Finally on Friday, it had trouble turning on and a burning smell arose from the top. Came on but with the blinking folder with question mark. So turned it off and tried again to turn on: no chime and couldn't turn it on.

Went to Genius bar this a.m. Tried different cord. It turned on. Everything came up fine. Genius ran special test. Everything came back with green check. But he said the internal hard drive could very likely be starting to fail.

Back home. Just ran the Disk Utility to "Verify." It couldn't continue verification. Got these messages:

Invalid volume directory count.

Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.

The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.


1) Can I repair using the First Aid utility (or is it more about getting a new HD)?

2) If so, can someone remind me what keys to press on startup to boot from the CD?

3) I have 10.5.8 right now. Can I still boot from the original Tiger installation CD and use that Disk Utility?

OS X :: Unable;e To Boot From Internal Hard Drive / Use Disk Warrior To Repair Disk?
I am considering purchasing diskwarrior but want to make sure it can help my situation before I purchase it. My imac will not boot from the internal hard drive (Intel processor) When I use disk utility to try and repair the disk, I get error messages and it won't repair. I can see the HD but cannot repair it. When I connect using target mode with my mac book pro, the hard drive does not appear on my host (macbook pro) computer. I have reloaded OS X (Leopard) onto a firewire external drive and can boot my imac that way but I can not find my original internal Macintosh HD. Will disk warrior be able to help with this scenario. I would really like to access that internal Macintosh HD and retrieve my files.

OS X Leopard :: Disk Utility - Designed With Verify Versus Repair Disk
Disk Utility - if you suspect a disk has directory corruption - why bother to use verify disk at all / ever ?

I dont get its design. Seems like the reason why you launched Disk Utility is to always just verify and repair, you get this if you click the "repair" button.

So why put in the "verify" button, if you have an issue, you will just end up having to click something else.... am I the only one who questions Disk Utility's logic on this ?

Power Mac G5 :: Disk Utility Unable To Repair Permissions / Using Leopard Installation Disk
After reinstall of iLife '08 and Software Update completed, I ran Repair Disk Permissions. Got an immediate red note "error: The underlying task reported failure on exit (sic)." with a flag: "First Aid failed. Disk Utility stopped repairing permissions on 'Mac HD...' because the following error was encountered: The underlying task reported failure on exit."

I went to my Leopard Installation disk and ran "Repair Disk." No problem found. From the Installation disk, ran Repair Disk Permissions. got the same RED INK comments and flag, First Aid failed.Restarts don't help. Also, so far I have not found an application which is NOT working despite this Disk Utility problem, happy to report ;-))

Additional background. I was reinstalling iLife to fix iPhoto after a clean reinstallation of Leopard and reincorporation of files and apps vis Time Machine. It had been several weeks and iPhoto appeared to be the only app which was not quite right.

OS X Tiger :: Disk Utility Repair Disk Permissions / Showing Documents Folder As Empty
After having trouble downloading a file (error message said disk was full but I had 12g free) I decided to try the 'Verify Disk' and then 'Restore Disk Permissions' actions in the Disk Utility application.

Now my 'Documents' folder is empty! No disk space has been freed up so I believe the files should still be there, I just can't see them. When I choose the 'Get Info' action on the 'Documents' folder it says 0 files.

IMac Intel :: Started With Installation Disk And Ran The Disk Utility HD Needed Repair?
My 2 1/2 year old IMAC starting locking up recently and now will not startup. I started it with the installation disk and ran the disk utility. It said the HD needed repair. After a couple of attempts, the repair utility fixed the HD and said it was normal. I am now trying to reinstall the OS X using the 2 installation disks. However, when it gets about 3/4 done, it seems to stop installing. I have tried this twice with the same results. It never progresses to the step of inserting the 2nd disk.
