    Here is a screenshot of diskutility when i receive this error. What does this mean, and what should I do about this??

    I have tried repairing permissions, and restarting, yet this does not get rid of this message and error.

    Lately, I have not updated or anything, and have not noticed any problems except for a random crash of safari once, two or three days ago. I am just concerned about what this means

    Currently: Mac OS X Tiger v10.4.5
    All. Powerbook Rev. D
    No Current upgrades

    Thanks,
    AAA

    I don't know, but it doesn't look good. I'd do a backup.

    That's always good, but... it may be a simple solution just like mad jew suggested - running fsck.

    Will it allow you to repair the disk?

    I have had that exact same error before and fsck fixed it in my case. Good luck.

    fsck will fix the f*ck out of anything.

    f's for alliteration :).

    Seriously though, I had a very similar issue.. twice. fsck fixed it after two tries.

    Also click on the drive itself on the left hand side, then look at the bottom and see what the SMART status says.

    Hey! I resent that! :p



    It's mad like crazy, not mad like angry. Rumour has it that I was dropped on my head as a baby. Others say that I'm a crab...
