View Full Version : What is/are Profile First Aid/Bad Profiles?

Sep 12, 2012, 10:59 PM

New to mac and trying to learn about my MBA, and just happened to see the color sync utility on the dock. So I clicked on it and ran verify, since it was flashing at me (sorry, I'm just a consumer, lol), and this came up:

Searching for profiles...
Checking 22 profiles...
/System/Library/CoreServices/Resources/Profiles/HD 709-A.icc
Header message digest (MD5) is missing.
/System/Library/CoreServices/Resources/Profiles/SD 170M-A.icc
Header message digest (MD5) is missing.
Verify done - found 2 bad profiles.

Does this mean anything? It's a new/refurbished computer, so I was surprised to see that anything was missing or bad. Still in the two week return window, so thought I'd ask.

Thank you!

Same problem here with new 2012 Air. 10.8.2 Could someone please verify if this is something to be concerned with? Could it be HDD corruption?
