Power Mac G5 :: Using Disk - Utility Verify Disk Fails

Mar 18, 2009

Having a major issue: similar symptoms to others in the forum - with the fan and the computer not getting past the grey apple screen, I booted from the install disk and got to disk utility, at first all options were greyed out and I could not do anything, tried again a few times and finally got to the point where I could run the verify utility, never given the option to repair. When running the utility it failed and said I needed to repair by booting from the install disk and running the disk utility? Going around in circle here - any advice? I am currently running the Apple Hardware test to see if that shows anything...it has been a workhorse and I've NEVER had any issues with it.

Power Mac G5 :: Firewire Drive Seen By Disk Utility Won't Mount, Verify Or Repair?

Apr 15, 2009

I have a WD Terabyte drive that I have used for over a year with no problems. A couple of days ago my roommate went to use it and disconnected the drive from my computer without ejecting it first. He used it with his PC and disconnected it without "safely removing" it from his computer and now it will not mount to my desktop of been seen by PC. Disk Utility sees the device but I get an error when I try to repair the disk or verify the disk. It gives me an "error on exit" message. I really need the 700GB of info on that drive. Don't know what to do next.

OS X Leopard :: Using Disk Utility / Verify And Repair Grayed Out, Using Startup Disk

Feb 28, 2009

I'm trying to repair my hard drive. I restarted from the OS X Mac Mini install CD (holding down the letter C when I heard the chime), opened Disk Utility from the Utilities folder, selected my hard drive image, but the "verify disk" and "repair disk" options are grayed out. I'm at a loss as to how to proceed.

OS X :: Disk Utility To Verify Disk Ends With Error?

May 10, 2010

I'm running OSX 10.4.11 on a 12" PowerBook 1.5 GHz with 1.25 GB of RAM and an 80 GB HD.

When I run the disk Utility to Verify Disk, it ends with the message, "Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit." This happens if I run the Disk Utility from the hard drive, from the OSX installation disk or from an external hard drive.

The Repair Drive button is always grayed out no matter where I am running the disk Utility from, too.

So far, I haven't had any other unusual things with the operation, but I'm concerned that this could be an early warning of problems to come.

Has anyone else had this problem or have a clue?

I have cloned the entire hard drive onto an external drive with Carbon Copy Cloner. I know PPC systems won't boot from a USB drive, but I was considering booting from the install disk, re-formatting the drive from there and then re-installing from the external by running CCC from there. I hope someone will have a direct solution to repairing the drive without doing all of that.

OS X :: Using Disk Utility To Verify USB Drive Attached To TC

Jan 7, 2009

I have an USB external HD attached to Time Capsule. Trying to find out how one can use diskutil to do a verifyVolume on this drive. I tried something like: diskutil verifyVolume /Volumes/myDrive but it didn't work. The command is (naturally) ok with an USB external HD attached to the USB port on the Mac itself.

Software :: Disk Utility - Won't Verify / Repair

Jun 2, 2009

I have a MacBook and last night it froze for a while, so I manually shut it down. When I tried to turn it on, it went to the white screen with the folder and flashing question mark. I don't know how to fix computers at all, so I looked online and it said to put the disc in. I went to disc utility and it shows the hard drive, but it is not as bright as the install disc.. does that mean it cannot be found? What should I do? I tried to reinstall the disc to my hard drive with the option checked to keep my old settings, etc but it did not work. Most of my stuff is not backed up so if there is any way I can try to save it before I try to reload the hard drive would be really great.

Mac Mini :: Verify Disk Versus Verify Disk Permissions

Dec 26, 2010

So between today and yesterday I have just been doing some casual maintenance with my Mac Mini. I decided I would run the First Aid program in utilities just to make sure everything is doing well. I was just wondering what is the difference between the two options "Verify Disk" and Verify Disk Permissions"- what exactly do each of them do? It almost sounds self-explanatory but can someone shed some light for me?

I've ran all the verification tests on each hard drive I have and repaired them when needed. So far it has only been my external WD hard drive that needed to have a repair, though I didn't notice anything wrong with it prior to running the verification test. Basically, I'm just wondering what each of the functions do.

OS X :: Removing Partitions With Disk Utility Fails

Jun 23, 2010

Seems that I have messed up my Macbook Pro hark disk. Opening disk utility on macosx 10.5.8 shows that my disk in partitioned as this:
1)Macintosh HD
2)Apple_HFS disk0s3
3)Linux Swap

All of them appear to formatted as Mac OS extended (journaled) although the Linux Swap partition appears as Unmounted and cant be mounted nor use first aid on it. the others 2 appear to ok on verify disk test. What I want to do is remove partition 2 and 3. As I mention disk utility fails both under macosx and also when i use it booting from Mac OS X install disk. Should I use something like g-parted to boot from and re arrange my partitions or will this further mess up my disk? will MBR be affected?

Power Mac G5 :: Internal Hdd Disk Utility / It Will Be Completed In 1 Minute

Dec 3, 2007

I just installed a Hitachi 1TB drive in my dual 2.5ghz powerPC G5.

I carbon copied my old harddrive over to it.

I didn't want to reinstall my OS.

However I think I copied some problems over.

In Disk Utility when I try to Verify Disk Permissions, Verify Disk, or Repair Disk Permissions (any of the options I am allowed to do to the startup drive) it moves like 1/5th of the time bar meaning it is working then changes to "It will be completed in 1 minute" then stalls there.

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.

OS X :: How To Merge The Disk On The Apple Support Section Under Troubleshooting Articles For Disk Utility

Oct 7, 2010

After I erase the hard disk it shows 74.5gb free, almost. It says there is 42.3mb of space being used by 2 files which I understand are used for read write or partitioning or whatever.

When I then leave disk utility and go to the actual installer, the destination disk (untitled - 74.5gb) shows only 73.9gb free space. What is taking up an additional 500mb of space on the hard drive?

Apple support told me that somehow the disk has been altered and I lost space on the disk or I am now using a seperate partition that isn't showing up. Disk utility shows only one partition with 74.5gb free space. He told me I can find information about how to 'merge' the disk on the apple support section under troubleshooting articles for disk utility. I have been unable to locate this information.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disk Utility Can't Repair Disk (1 Partition) On External Hard Drive

Apr 24, 2012

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 :: Folder With Question Mark At Startup - Disk 0 Showing In Disk Utility

Jun 24, 2014

I get this question mark along with a folder when starting up. I tried holding down the option key when turning on the power and then I get an internet recovery along with a globe. I click on the arrow below it and it takes maybe 15 minutes to start up. Then i get this disk utilities screen. I'm now unable to do anything. When going into disk utility, disk 0 shows with Mac OS X base system underneath it. All the clickable buttons are faded out. Is there something wrong with the hardrive? and where could i get this fixed? There isn't a warranty on it.

Windows On Mac :: Partition Error - Back Up Disk And Use Disk Utility To Format

Oct 9, 2010

I had windows vista installed but suddenly the audio decided to become faulty, after spending a day trying to fix it i realized I have a windows 7 install disc so i might as well just replace vista with windows 7. I didnt take care of vista or ever register it so it became quite a task to upgrade so i just deleted the partition and went to create a new one and just do a full install of windows 7.

I made the partition but the wrong format, so i removed it through boot camp assistant and created another, except now it keeps giving me the "back up the disk and use disk utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using boot camp assistant again" Now, I'd love to do this, except I have no idea what I'm doing and WHY this error has occured. After becoming frustrated I switched from my imac to my macbook pro and received the same error when trying to create a partition. So any help on exactly what I need to do would be a HUGE help. I only use windows for music production (I know, seems backwards, but I use Sony Acid and FL Studio so I'm stuck with Windows)
