IMac (Intel) :: Running Disk Permissions Repair In Mavericks 10.9.3
Jun 4, 2014
I just got a new Imac last week.¬† When I try to go into Command + R the repair mode it looks like it changed to a reinstallation mode which is what I don't want.¬† Is there another way to run disk permissions or disk repair in Mavericks?
iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013), OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)
While trying to pepair permissions systom freeze up. So I put in the startup disk hit restrat holding down c and tried to repair permissions that way and it froze up that way too. I had to manually turn off machine.
Disk Utility says there are a bunch of disk permissions that need repairing. I hit repair and disk utility says that it repaired those disk permissions. But when I verify, it says they still need to be repaired.
I have my pbook g4 in target disk mode and I am trying to make a superduper backup but I get "Error starting permissions repair for disk1s3 Powerbook-G4-#1: Operation not supported for the Mac OS X version on the targeted disk (-9950)".
Disk utility doesn't have repair permissions enabled. So, I 've only done a repair disk on the target disk which a journaled hfs+.
I am having problems with my Mac running slow. I had a friend guide me to run a "repair disk permission".I did that but I am not sure if I am to click clear history.Also should I do anything else to help my Mac run better?
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.
I have a MacBook Pro intel i7 Chip. I am running disk permissions and its taking a long time and showing Open error 5 on the details list. I am letting it do its thing but im curius as to what this error is and why its taking so long in the utility. I see in some other postings that sometimes it te signs of a bad drive and sometimes not. it is the Toshiba 750GB drive.
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?
Recently I archived and installed leopard from tiger. Since then sometime there is a message that comes up telling me I need to restart my computer in all different languages. Also when I try to verify and repair my disk permissions, this is what shows up: Permissions differ on "System/Library/CoreServices/Front Row.app/Contents/CodeResources", ....
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?
why I have to check & repair disk permissions every time I have to restart my MacBook Pro.¬† When I do the check I get various messages eg 'Library should be '0',¬† is '80'. And other variations for Library.
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?
Running Diks Util on my iMac 10.6.2. i am given this warning. ========= Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Is it something I should heed and what to do in that case?
Macbook Pro running on OSX Mavericks is having problems.¬†
Today I turned my Mac on, and it started up with a loading wheel and a loading bar. When the loading bar finished, the Mac turned itself off. I tried many times, same happened every time. I then went into OSX Recovery, started repairing Macintosh HD, but the error message saying "Disk Utility can't repair Macintosh HD" came up and now I don't now what to do.¬†
Is there any way I can back up my files in this situation? Is there any way I can repair the disk without having to erase all data and reinstalling OSX? Or do I really need to bring it to a Apple Store for repair?¬†
Will I lose my settings, programs, and preferences, if I boot from the system discs and run a Repair Disk from Disk Utility? I've been having some startup problems, like a circle with a slash and it's been mentioned that I may need to do this.
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?
I'm trying to install Windows 7 on my mac. I'm using bootcamp assistant to try and partition my hard drive, but it gives me an error saying it cannot partition it because of unmovable files or something along those lines. Is there any way to get around it, and if I do use my OSX install disk and run disk utility to repair the drive will my files be deleted?
Ever since I updated OS X to 10.9.3, every time I leave my computer for long enough for it tput the display to sleep, when I come back I find that it has shut down and restarted itself. The one time I caught it in the act, it went to a white screen with the message that the iMac was restarted "due to a problem." ¬†
My machine is a 27-inch iMac, Late 2009, running OS X 10.9.3
Using OSX 10.9.3 on my iMac. Processor 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5, Memory 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3. Fairly new iMac, 21.5 inch, Late 2013. Just now, my right click function on my mouse does not work. I have checked my System Preferences and the right click is checked under secondary click. I did uncheck it, exit System Preferences, and then come in again and re-checked it, but that did no good.¬†
I did restart my computer last night before I quit for the day because recently I uninstalled Sophos Anti-Virus because it seemed to be caught in a loop that was not finished "cleaning up" but that is only change I have made. Aside from the Sophos acting wonky there were no other issues with the machine last night.¬†
The right click does not work in all programs, not just Finder. How can I get my right click function to work again?
I have a Macbook pro 17" (2011) running Mavericks with a Crucial 960Gb SSD and a 750Gb WDC in the optical bay. My ssd is divided into 710 Gb to OS X and 182 Gb to Windows 7 Bootcamp. All was well until the other day when the OS X partition failed to boot. I got the grey screen and the very slow progress bar which after 15¬† minutes powered the machine off. The Bootcamp partion continues to work without issues. I booted from an install disk and ran disk utility. The OS X partition appears greyed out on the left panel. I attempt a repair disk and after a 15¬† minute delay it says it is unable to repair the last action being "updating boot support partitions for the volume as required". Its all backed up regularly on time machine but when I boot an install usb and attempt to restore from time machine, the OSX disk does not appear as an option. I go back into disk utility and attemp to erase/repartition the disk to start a new install but it refuses to unmount. I appear to be running out of options,
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?
My 2014 21" iMac powers itself down after about 10 seconds while trying to startup in safe boot mode. I'm not even sure why it is trying to start in safe boot mode. I shut it down after a power outage while plugged into an APS UPS. I'm guessing that since I interrupted the auto shutdown it is restarting in safe boot mode. Either way, I get a grey screen with a big apple and a progress bar. The progress bar gets to about a tenth full and the power just shuts off.¬†
I've tried starting up while holding the alt key to select the Macintosh HD. The same thing happens.
