OS X :: Corrupt Os X Partition - MacDrive / How To Repair

It installed fine and worked, so i then decided to install a game (L4D2) installed about half way then BSOD!

I didnt mind to much until i realised I could no longer boot into OSX, windows works perfectly.

I have booted into Single user mode and have successfully managed to find all the files they all seem to be fine. I just cant figure out a way to back them up, I am unable to mount a usb drive whenever I use the MKDIR command in /Volumes/ I get the message 'file exists' or something similar.

Final Cut Pro :: P2 Footage Corrupt - How To Repair
I have a weird situation here: I was sent a drive with footage that has already been transferred from P2. Most of the footage is fine, but some of it is acting very strangely - I can watch the video in preview but the audio is off and it stops half way through the clip, when I bring the same clip into QT, it is only audio, same with compressor. When I bring it into FCP, it says "The movie file modified "file-name" can not be found, without this file the movie can not be played properly."

MacBook :: BootCamp Disk Space Error - OS Partition Corrupt
My Finder says that I have about 50GB free, Disk Utility says I have about 20GB free, and Boot Camp says I have less than 10GB free. I ran a Disk Verify in my Mac OS Partition, it says the OS disk is corrupt. I went to the Recovery Partition, it says everything is fine. What do I do to fix these issues?

Windows On Mac :: Unable To Access Macdrive
Basically, I have a USB drive (Seagate Free Agent) and a Seagate 200 gig HDD. Originally, these were formatted as OSX extended volumes. When I decided to donate them to another PC, I used MacDrive to access them.

I have since formatted them both as NTFS. After electing to reinstall Windows 7, I found to my surprise that neither drive could be read at all. It wasn't until I installed MacDrive 8 that I was able to read them once again.

Why would drives that have been formatted in a native Windows volume still require MacDrive to just to be able to access them?

Windows On Mac :: Transferring Files Between HFS+ (OSX) And NTFS (Win XP) - Is Macdrive Or Other HD
So Ive been using Macdrive for transfering files between HFS+ (OSX) and NTFS (Win XP), whenever Iam in bootcamp. Each time I transfer something large from win partition to my OSX partition using Macdrive (files around 6-8 GB) I often get the disc error message "You disc need repair". So I was wondering, is the problem my HD or is it the program macdrive?

OS X Leopard :: Permissions Repair Says Repair Completed / Second Repair Shows Same Issues
After I repair permissions, a list of repaired files is shown and "Permissions repair complete". I decided to run it again immediately just on a lark. The same list of files appeared and the same "Permissions repair complete". I booted to the Leopard install DVD and ran permissions repair -- twice -- same issue. I know an Archive install will fix it, but any other suggestions? Use Pacifist to extract and replace the troubled files?

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Repair Boot Partition But Don't Have 'Recovery HD'
I was doing a routine maintenence and Disk Utility is telling me I have a few block counts askew. Everything seems to be working fine ( on the surface of things ) but like to be anal and would like to do a repair. However, I don't have a Recovery partition and the App store has decided that I haven't purchased Lion although I did, I can show you the bank statement. I installed a new hard disk not so long back ( I guess this is the reason why the App store decided I didn't purchase Lion!? ) and reinstalled from a Time Machine backup it wasn't seemless but I'm techy enough, to make it work, just not a big fan of spending my days learning terminal commands.I have a mid 2009 MPB so can't do internet recovery, the Recovery Disk Assistant won't let me create a Recovery Disk on an exernal drive since, yes you've guessed it, I don't have a Recovery Partition.

Am quite happy to reinstall as long as it doesn't compromise my data but can't find the 'restore my purchases' button on the app store else if there is a less than obtuse ( and none-sketchy ) method of creating the partition HD.

OS X Leopard :: Repair Disk Permissions - Error (File System Verify Or Repair Failed)
Today I installed some software and then ran 'repair disk permissions' to check that all was in order - which it was. However, my finger slipped (I actually find the new trackpad quite inaccurate from time to time but I guess that's my fault)- instead of closing Disk Utility I clicked on Verify Disk. I thought I would let it run its course ... imagine my surprise when this was the result ..

MacBook Pro :: Sending In For Repair Vs Local Repair?
My MBP recently had a bunch of problems with the logic board and speakers. I brought it into the Apple Store (on Monday) and they gave me the option of them sending it into a repair center, or them repairing it locally in store. I requested that they sent out just because I was curious to see how long it would take. To my surprise, my MBP arrived, fixed and as good as new on my doorstep today. That's amazingly fast for sending it out to a offsite repair center. The repair center is in Philadelphia. I live in Maine. You do the math. When I've had things repaired locally in the Apple Store it's taken weeks to repair instead of days because they need to order the parts.

Anyways, the point of this thread was to suggest to people that they choose the offsite repair option. It's amazingly fast, and it saved me a trip to the Apple Store (they shipped my MBP directly to my house).

OS X :: Does Apple Repair All Macs Sent In For Repair?
I took my late 2007 macbook in because the case was cracked. I read that this was a known issue and they would repair for free.(I had no warranty) also my battery was expanding and bloated, so much that it will no longer fit in my comp.

When I took it in, the tech said that my bottom case was cracked and he said that wasn't part of the known issue. He said it was caused by accidental damage (it was cracked clean through, so much so that it could be physically separated from the comp.(I informed him that the comp had never been dropped or damaged in anyway, he apparently didn't believe me but said he would see what he could do.

Anyway, he said he could fix the top case ( but they would not fix the bottom case)and give me a new battery although he had never seen a battery with the problem that mine had. He said it was probably expanded cells. I agreed to that as something is better than nothing but then, I asked him if the battery expanding could have caused the bottom case to crack since it was cracked near the battery compartment but on the side of the comp. After he tinkered around for a bit with the battery and the cracked part, he said he wasn't sure but he would send it in for repairs and I would not be charged.

First he said he would quote me a repair price and I told him that I had no intentions of paying for anything. After several instances of him running to the back to talk to people, he agreed to send it in. On the repair form it is listed as tier 4 accidental damage and I know that the tier 4 comes with a hefty charge for repair. Anyway, I am out of town and my comp is scheduled to be returned to me today. I dropped it off at the apple store on the 30th, it was received by the repair center on the 1st, repaired today( the second) and shipped back to me today and scheduled to be delivered today as well.

I was trying to find out if they actually repaired the bottom case or not as I will not be home to receive my comp until next week sometime. The repair form also said call if additional repairs are needed to quote a price. I have not received any calls at this number and do not know if they left any messages on my home phone. The repair turnaround seems rather quick and I was just wondering if they actually repaired it or sent in back in the same condition.

Apple support has no details of the actual repair just the time it was received, repaired and sent back to me. Also will they just leave it outside because no one is home to receive it?

OS X Leopard :: Erase Windows Partition, Back Up Mac Partition On Ext HD, Restore?
I partitioned half of my computer for Windows with bootcamp. Later, I tried to "erase" windows but now only half of my space is usable. How can I completely erase windows so that I have more usable space?

Do I have to back up my music, word docs, photos, etc. (from Mac) onto an external hard drive, then wipe out my system, reinstall my OS and then transfer all my important files back onto the Mac?

Hope someone with some step by step instructions as I am nervous to lose my files

Windows On Mac :: Resizing And Expanding Logical HFS+ Partition On Extended Partition
I am dual booting XP Pro and OS X on my NC10. I have XP Pro installed on the main partition with a FAT32 partition for files that can be read by both OSes (see attached image for two views of the partitions). I then installed OS X on an extended partition. Unfortunately, I had another 5GB partition also on that extended partition. I now want to delete the spare 5GB partition and non-destructively reallocate the space for the OS X partition - I want to expand it to be one big partition with my bootable OS X install still on it. Unfortunately, I can't find any way to do this in Partition Magic. Is it possible with GParted/BootItNG/iPartition or any similar software? If so, which and how? The NC10 has no CD drive so solutions that work from OS X or XP or a bootable USB stick would be preferred.

OS X Tiger :: Mac Partition Has Disappeared / Access Partition To Save My Documents
I have a macbook 2.. ghz with Mac OS 10.4... (sorry for the imprecision, I don't see the system anymore) The HD has 2 partitions, one for Mac OS one for BootCamp.I was working on a Word file and got the message that the document could be save because the disk was full. I had to force quit word, and then the Finder froze and I had to force a shut down.

When I tried to start again, nothing happened, only a grey screen.

I've tried to start in safe mode, nothing

I've reset the PRAM, doesn't start

I was able to start it in TERMINAL mode and plug it to my other computer, but I can't see the HD even when

I run disk utility, However I can see the CD that was in the drive.

I've started with the Mac OS install disk and run Disk Repair, I can see the HD, with two partitions, but one shows as 'UNTITLED' and the other is the bootcamp one, I can't run a check or a repair on the untitled partition.

I've tried to archive and reinstall the system, but the only disk I see for installation, is the Bootcamp
partition, the other partition doesn't show.I would like to be able to access the Mac os partition to save my documents and then reinstall the OS, any suggestions how to achieve this

OS X Leopard :: Install A Third Partition (split From Mac OS' Partition) Without Reformatting Anything?
I have done some research but none of the methods seems to work... or I am doing something wrong... anyway...I have a macbook Pro. it is currently partitioned with mac OS and windows, so 2 partitions.Is it possible to install a third partition (split from Mac OS' partition) without reformatting anything or backing up everything? I know there will be a problem with Windows' boot.ini, I know how to edit that. but the problem is disk utility (in OS, or install DVD) doesn't let me partition it. In leopard, disk utility tells me that this will cause windows to not work so it doesn't allow me to do it. In the installation DVD, it says that it will destroy the information on the 2 partitions and then give me the option to continue to how can I install a third partition without backing up or reformatting? is it even possible?

Windows On Mac :: Startup Disk Cannot Partition Or Restore To Single Partition?
Got my first MacBook Pro about 2 months ago and I have been enjoying it to full effect, installing programs such as logic studio and photoshop cs5 on it. Recently, however, I decided that I would like to access some of my windows based programs when I am on the road and don't have my desktop pc with me. So I bought a fresh copy of 32-bit Windows 7 Ultimate and sat at my macbook, put the disc in and then loaded up Boot Camp. I went through the menu options, decided that I wanted a 50GB partition, leaving my Mac OS drive at 182 GB with 83GB to spare. However, when I started partitioning, after about a minute it stopped and this error message appeared: "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition. The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.".

I tried cleaning all my temporary files and deleting some files in my downloads that were quite large and I restarted my machine. The problem persisted. Is there a solution to this problem that does not involve doing all this rubbish with a fresh install of Mac OS? I don't have any method of backup apart from a couple of 4GB flash drives..

Applications :: Share ITunes Library On Mac Partition With Windows Partition
I recently installed MacDrive on my Windows Vista X64 partition so that I could access my iTunes Library on my Mac partition. After installing iTunes on my Windows partition and pressing shift while it opened, iTunes asked me for an iTunes library file ending with the extension ".itl". Now, I do not have any files ending with this extension in my iTunes folder on my Mac partition. Is there anything I can do to make iTunes on Windows to read my music library on my Mac partition?

Windows On Mac :: Won't Work With Additional Partition / Enlarging BootCamp Partition
So my iMac came with a 1TB hard drive and I installed Windows 7 x64 but only gave it some 93GB. I have a two-prong question:

Can I add a third partition to my drive after I partition for BootCamp? My main partition ("Macintosh HD" by default) is over 900GB large and I'd really like to cut that up into 2x450GB, for example, in addition to the 93GB BootCamp partition.

Second, once partitioned, is it possible to resize the BootCamp partition to make it bigger after it has been set up?

Windows On Mac :: Use Disk Utility To Create OSX Partition / Working After Manual Partition
First some background info. I recently purchased a 1TB hard drive for my 13" MBP, and I am about to do a clean install of OSX 10.6 and Win7 64bit on separate partitions.

And I want to setup the partitions before I install using Disk Utility. The reason for this is because I'm under the assumption that when creating a NTFS partition its better for the disk to be blank so it can put the MFT(Master file table) and MFT Mirror wherever it wants instead of some random spot on the disk (that way disk writes will be faster). The MFT thing was true when converting a FAT32 disk to NTFS. Nativity formatted NTFS disks were always faster then ones converted from FAT32, because the MFT was spread out instead of at the start of the disk.

I'm worried that installing OSX and then using the bootcamp utility will cause the MFT on my NTFS partition to end up in a un-optimal place and disk Reads/Writes will be slower.

Ok, so here's my questions.

1.) Should I be using a GUID Partition Table or Master Boot Record(Remember OSX 10.6 and Win7)?

2.) Should I use Disk Utility to Create a the OSX partition and then leave the second partition as Free Space? / Or should I use a third party utility and make the OSX partition and the NTFS partition at the same time?

3.) If I do create the partitions Manualy, will bootcamp still work correctly?

4.) Should I Use Journaled or Case-Sensitive Journaled on my OSX partition?

I know all of the questions were stupid, but there isn't any info on the web about it.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Partition - Vista NOT Installed - Partition Gone
I have a 13" MBP with a 250 gb hd, I partitioned the HD 25gb for Windows XP shortly after I bought it. I was unable to install my copy of windows, contacted apple after exhaustive search as to why... Long story short, I now have Vista to install... When I went back to Boot Camp Assistant; partition was gone. Researched... ran disk utility, repaired and erased partition. Bootcamp HD now shows up in desktop, still not in bootcamp assistant. Since I am unable to locate in assistant; would there be any problems with just installing Vista off the install disk by restarting? Any ideas what to do if this is not a good idea (short of restoring)?

OS X Tiger :: Permissions Repair On Two Files / Unable To Repair Or Delete Files
i am unable to get a clean "repair permissions" result on two files. Here's what Disk Utility has to say about the matter:

Repairing permissions for "Macintosh HD"
Determining correct file permissions.
User differs on ./System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/EAP8021X.framework/Versions/A/Resources/version.plist, should be 0, owner is -989855744
Owner and group not corrected on ./System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/EAP8021X.framework/Versions/A/Resources/version.plist, reason Operation not permitted
Permissions not corrected on ./System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/EAP8021X.framework/Versions/A/Resources/version.plist, reason Operation not permitted

Permissions repair complete

The privileges have been verified or repaired on the selected volume

No matter what I try, I cannot repair the permissions on these two files, nor can I delete them.

I've been having a tremendous amount of difficulty with my iMac G5, regarding mostly kernel panics, and a whole assortment of issues that are probably related to the issues. I'm not going to go into all those problems at the moment, unless they're required to troubleshoot this particular issue. I've noticed, however, that these two files became problematic after the last Security Update in terms of being unable to repair permissions (something I routinely do after updating software).

If anyone can shed light on how to either repair the permissions on these two files, or delete them if at all possible,
