Software :: Permissions Don't Repair?

Feb 16, 2010

For 2 days my permissions won't repair completely. I run the repair - it takes 20 minutes, examines every file on the computer and ends. When I run it agin it does the same.

CS3/4 suite, Max/MSP, all crash. MS word will not open. Apple software OK.

17" MacBook Pro 3.06, 250 G solid state. 8GB RAM. Running OS 10.6.2

Had Apples since the MacPlus. Never seen anything like this before. Rebuilt hard drive with DiskWarrior, zapped PRAM.

Problems seemed to begin on the weekend with a Flash plugin showing up as needing a new version. I replaced it with 10.0.43 and it didn't fix the problem. This may not be related of course.

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 :: Wrong Password - How To Repair Permissions

Sep 3, 2010

So my teacher's iMac is behaving weirdly. She turns it on and she is asked to type in the password to log in. It's not set as automatic login. But it says the password is incorrect. She is positive the password is typed in correctly. She reboots it and types in the same password. This time, it lets her in. I tried repairing permissions but to no avail.

OS X :: Repair Permissions After Software Update?

Apr 4, 2010

A couple of days ago I did a software update for the airport I believe. Everything went fine during the update and after. Every once in a while I do a permissions repair to do some maintenece. I just did it and it repaired prob like 20 entries. All the entries said airport in it. It did repair all of them though. I re ran it and none of them showed up again. So it seems fine. But just curious why it would do this, kinda odd?

OS X :: Zap PRAM - Repair Permissions & Run FSCK?

Sep 20, 2004

The idea for this quick GUIDE was thought up in this thread by kingjr3. Like the networking thread the idea of this is to have a quick point of reference for those common questions. How to Zap PRAM Zapping PRAM is simple, just reboot your Mac and hold down "Command(the Apple key)+Option(the Alt key)+P+R" while it is booting, when you hear the startup sound for the seond time the operation is complete, and you can release the key combination. Now just let your Mac boot as normal. How to Repair Permissions

- Navigte to "Applications > Utilities", and open up "Disk Utility".
- Select the volume where your OS resides, and hit the "Repair Disk Permissions" button.

If you are comfortable with using the Terminal (Applications > Utilities >, you can also enter this command to run repair permissions - "sudo diskutil repairpermissions /" (without the quotes), just enter your password when prompted. How to run FSCK

- Restart your Mac holding down "Command(the Apple key)+S" key to enter 'Single user mode'.
- Type "fsck -f", and hit return.
- Once complete type "reboot" and hit return to reboot you Mac back in to OS X as normal.

If there is anything that you think is wrong here, or you think I have missed any vital steps out, please post and let me know so that I can ammend this.

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 :: 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 :: Checking Permissions And Verify Repair If Needed

May 9, 2009

Right, I just upgraded the Hard Drive in my white Macbook today. So I put a fresh install of OSX on and put all my pictures, music, apps etc back on. After I had done everything I decided to check the permissions and repair any if needed. As it was verifying the permissions loads came up that needed repaired. So when i clicked repair it all seemed to go fine, it doesn't say any couldn't be fixed or nothing. But I went to verify them again just to double check and they were all still there needed repaired again.

OS X :: System Rebooted During Repair Permissions Now Broken

Aug 24, 2009

I am a Mac veteran and should know better but I went brain dead and rebooted system after an update while the repair permissions function was running in the background. Now my IMac will reboot and then start to load once I login but it hangs on the startup screen only showing my mouse arrow and the standard space startup background. It won't get to my desktop. Am I going to have to reinstall the system? I have everything backed up on Time Machine but I can't access it from this position. I have a project I have to finish tonight and now I'm really screwed if I can't get in it.

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?

I am using an Intel based imac 2.8GHz, has 4GB memory, OS 10.5.6. It has 16GB Hard disk free.

After finder has been up for 20 seconds or so the response time between clicks gets really slow (1 or 2 minutes). The problem repeats every time Finder is restarted. When I look at the Activity monitor the Finder shows that it is taking up 840MB of RAM and most of the CPU.

OS X :: Looking For A Tool To Repair Permissions And Perform Other Routine Tasks

I explained my MBP problem in this thread and AppleCare support advised me to repair my permissions.

Now I know there are about a dozen apps that do this, but can you give me some recommendations? I want 'the best' if there's even such a thing.

Paid or free, I don't care ... as long as I don't have to wipe my entire system.
