    I have a number of files that have been modified and are SUID files that will be repaired by Disk Utility.

    Anyone have any idea what this is or if you are seeing this with your Disk Utilities...

    Here is the output...

    It's safe to ignore these.

    I get those, too. Does everybody? "Safe to ignore" only satisfies me so much. I'd still sortof like to know why they're there / what they mean. And if most people don't get that, I'd like to know what I did differently in order to start getting them. ...And since when does Apple allow disk utility to report vague "warning" messages that are of no consequence whatsoever? Seems sortof contrary to the general Apple user experience...

    I got these, too, and found the same 'safe to ignore' message when I Googled it. I'll bow down to the Apple HQ on this one.

    SUID not repaired

    I will would like to know why their repair tool is unable to repair this and the ACL found but not expected. Almost defeats the purpose of having this tool.
