    I was verifying my hard drive with disk utility when I got this message:

    Checking volume information.
    The volume Lacie needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit


    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair


    I am unable to click "Repair Disk." What can I do to repair this? I am very inexperienced with this so I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!

    You can't repair the disk you start up from so you can either use Disk Utility on the OSX system disks by putting them in the optical drive and pressing C as you boot up, selecting Disk Utility from one of the menus and repairing the disk.

    Or even better, you can run fsck. :)
