OS X :: Unable To Repair Disk Permissions?

Aug 21, 2010

When I open Disk Utility and select one of the 2 volumes in the left pane, the buttons "Verify disk permissions" and "Repair disk permissions" remain greyed out. Only the "Repair disk" and "Verify disk" buttons are enabled. This is not the startup Volume. For this volume all 4 buttons are enabled.

How can I repair the disk permissions on the volume?

I have Mac OS X 10.6.4

Power Mac G5 :: Repair Permissions And Disk Options?

Nov 30, 2007

Using the Apple Disk Utility...

What the difference between running Repair/Verify (Permissions or the Disk itself) on the hard drive or the boot volume listed in the window?

Some say just run it on the boot volume, others say run it on both.

Is there an advantage in doing both (if so, why) or should it be just the boot volume?

OS X :: Occasional Freeze & Repair Disk Permissions Not Repairing?

Nov 10, 2009

I bought this G5 with consistant startup problems but after replacing the hard drive,installing a fresh operating system, re-seating the ram, checking the Pram battery, etc, it was running fine. I now realize that when trying to repair the disk permissions, the same list keeps coming back even though it shows it's been repaired. Also, occasionally it may freeze or go into kernal panic on startup. If the hard drive is new, does it sound like a possible hardware problem? Does repairing disk permissions involve anything hardware?

OS X :: Unable To Mount External Drive / Repair Disk Permissions?

May 20, 2009

I'm having a series of problems. First some intermittent audio problems with Garageband, then, then some external drives won't mount, and now I can't sync to my disk from the iMac. I've run Disk Utitilies a few times and when I do Verify Disk Permissions, it finds a list of things to fix, I then hit Repair Disk Permissions and it fixes them, and then hit Verify Disk, and it say the disk appears ok. When I do Verify Disk Permissions again though, it finds another long list of things to fix. Is this serious? What should my next step be? Should I reinstall the entire system?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: System Doesn't Restart When Booting For DVD For Disk Repair

Feb 25, 2012

I ran a disk check on my MacBook Pro which told me to run disk repair. Since this was my boot HD, I took out my Installation DVD, put it into the running system and started the installation file then selected that I wanted to reboot and start utilities. The system then rebooted, the "chime" came, and then, silence, gray screen with apple logo, nothing is happening.What do I need to do, to get further and repair my hard disk?

OS X :: Undo "Repair Disk Permissions"?

Oct 26, 2010

I carried out a "Repair Disk Permission" from the OS X Install disc by mistake. I meant to do "Repair Disk" from the OS X install disc. According to [URL] (and the guide posted here) "Repair Disk Permission" should not be done from the OS X install disc, as it may alter changes made by by software updates. Is there any way I can undo my mistake?

OS X :: Repair Permissions Again And Again / External FW Drive With Leopard

Feb 11, 2010

After some various installations and file copy from/to external hard drives i ran the repair permissions on the bootup hard drive.

There was a listing about a mile long. Whoa, that does not look good to me.

So, i ran the persmissions repair again: another mile long listing: yikes.

Yep, ran another permissions repair and same thing.

How many times do you have to run permissions until it just show a few permissions that had to be corrected ? Or is this a sign that the system is in trouble.

This was an external FW drive with Leopard run by iMac 3.06GHz.

OS X :: Repair Permissions Isn't Repairing Permissions

Mar 29, 2009

Using OS X 10.5.6

When running Repair Permissions in Disk Utility, it reports that there are errors and that it's fixed them but if I run it again, the same errors keep appearing.

I've noticed that the current permissions on the errors are lrw-rw-rw- which I assume means that they are symbolic links and not the actual files which Disk Utility is expecting. Any idea what's going on?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Changed Contents Of Receipts Folder Now Permissions Won't Repair

May 29, 2012

I restored from backup OS X 10.5.8 Leopard using Time Machine to a brand new drive. After manually migrating some data to the newly restored boot drive I accidentally replaced the /Library/receipts folder with an out dated receipts folder. The problem is there is no way to get the proper receipts folder back so I'm stuck with a receipts folder filled with permissions that are not in sync with the list. I'm assuming this blunder is causing the error: The underlying task reported failure on exit, every time I try to repair permissions. I need this boot drive to be stable and want to avoid installing from DVD the OS from scratch. The drive checks out ok with every test accept repair permissions. The system is running VERY stable now on this brand new WD Caviar Black 1 TB drive. Do you think it's safe to clone this drive even though repair permissions won't work anymore?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Delete A Load Of Disk Permissions?

Mar 29, 2012

I would like to delete a load of disk permissions. They are continually needing to be repaired and I don't recognize any of the names of the apps, and if I do, I would prefer to uninstall them.  

Is this crazy? The main reason is that I am using drive genius 3 which continually monitors the health of the drive using 'drive pulse'. It comes up with 'critical' repairs needed each day and they are the same ones so I would prefer to just ditch them if possible?  

Also, what I would really like to know is how I can use the command line to 'batch' delete these suckers.

OS X :: Installing Snow Leopard On MBA - Disk Need Repair

Aug 31, 2009

I have a MacBook Air and just bought snow leopard. While I was trying to install it (through the use of the optical drive of my mac mini), a message came up "the disk "macintosh HD" needs to be repaired". Go to the computer with the mac OS X install DVD, open 'remote install mac OS X' (located in the utilities folder in the app folder) and follow the onscreen instructions for restarting your computer using the DVD. When the mac OS X installer opens, follow the onscreen instructions to install mac OS X. during the installation, the installer repairs the disk automatically". I'm worried about losing files on my macbook air (and do not use time machine) so should i be backing my files up?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine And Disk Permissions + Compatibility With Snow Leopard?

Jun 29, 2012

I have received warning from Disk Utility that I should repair permissions as several files show incorrect permissions and, more than that, my 750GB shows "769GB available". 

1. If I use Command+R and rebuild the disk from a Time Machine backup, will permissions be reset or will the files just be copied as they are now? 

2. Is there a way to verify the TM backups to check the files therein? 

3. Suppose, just for the sake of an exercise, that I reload Snow Leopard; can I still use SL's Time Machine to read a Lion Time Machine backup?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Disk Util Can't Repair, Operation Not Supported

May 8, 2012

I am having problems with a partition that I use as my Time Machine backup. I have searched various previous discussions but can't seem to find a solution. My HDD is split into 2 partitions and the Time Machine one doesn't mount, the other works fine. When I try to mount it using Disk Utility I get the error message: "The disk X could not be mounted. Try running First Aid on the disk and retry mounting".  Then without doing anything else I get another message "Mac OS X can't repair the disk X. You can still open or copy files on the disk, but you can't save changes to files on the disk. Back up the disk and reformat it as soon as you can." Which disappeared after a few seconds and the partition mounted. When I try to repair the disk I get the above error message and another: "Disk Utility stopped repairing X. Disk Utility can't repair this disk. Back up as many files as possible, reformat the disk, and restore your backed up files." This appears after it says 'Updating boot support partitions…'. When mounted, I can open it in Finder, but when I try to copy 'Backups.backupdb' I get a message saying "The operation can't be completed because it isn't supported." This is the same for 'X's Computer' and each backup folder. I can copy files and folders in each backup folder but this would be very tedious and probably Time Machine wouldn't be able to use the resulting files. I have tried restoring the partition, through Disk Utility, to another HDD, but it just copies across the error. Disk Utility has been rather buggy as well, hanging on various operations involving the partition.
