    I have just checked my disk in Disk Utility, and I get:


    Verifying volume “Macintosh HD”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Checking multi-linked files.
    Checking Catalog hierarchy.
    %)
    Checking Extended Attributes file.
    Checking volume bitmap.
    Checking volume information.
    Volume Header needs minor repair
    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit


    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair





    How do I repair the boot drive?

    Thanx.

    I ended up botting under command+s, and using "fsck -f" command. Fixed it.


    Must have been something up, I have gained 20GBs of HDD space. Everything seems to be in tact.
