It is completely different in 10.11 El Capitan.
I like the new look — assuming, of course, that features haven't been removed (as we all know happens when Apple decides to re-do apps). Some of the built-in apps haven't changed for years. Disk Utility has basically been the same since 10.0.
Another app I'd like to see redone is Keychain Access — perhaps to be more of a 1Password-type app; it certainly has the potential.
One thing that's not working for me (yet) ist the ability to resize HFS+ partitions. I can change the size using the "cake", but can't apply the settings. Is it working for anyone? Yes, I did try it using the recovery partition, and not on my running system.
Still using a HDD logo for an SSD. Oh well.
Yep, perhaps the only app that has not seen a redesign since the Tiger days.
Don't worry, it happened. No more option to verify/repair permissions through the GUI.
Not sure why but I actually found it a little confusing! I liked the icons tho!
I think it's actually pretty slick. I warmed up to it really quick, just missing the permissions check although I assume since nothing can touch the System folder it really isn't needed anymore.
Still though, can you run Permissions check from Terminal? Asking for a friend...
EDIT: Yep, you can. Command below for anyone interested (use at your own risk! It runs at the su)
sudo diskutil repairPermissions /
Yes, you can still run it through Terminal.
Ha lol. Should have checked my alerts before editing.
Seems that windows 10 has changed it? I didn't remember.
I mean, Windows 10 may be able to simply see the icon to recognise if disk is ssd or hdd.
Yeah, that's not the issue tywebb13. That was one of the 1st things I checked too. I did run it through the terminal and it did repair some permissions. It seems to just be gone from the UI. There is a health option but it doesn't really break it down to disk permissions when repairing.
Interesting, its working fine here on my MBP. It was a FileVault/CS disk before I disabled FV, and I was just able to setup another 10GB partition, delete it then resize my OS X disk.
I'm not sure we're on the same page. Are you saying that you were able to select/use "Repair Permissions" using the new iteration of the graphical Disk Utility?
My answer directed to tywebb was that these options are missing, and it's not a CoreStorage volume. Are we taking about the same thing here?
I was just reading on OWC's website and saw that they say that if you have an OWC SSD you DO NOT need to have TRIM enabled.... aparently it is built into the SSD controler...? and that if you have an SSD drive or a few other brand drives, that having TRIM enabled will actually hurt the performance of the ssd drive... this is news to me. did anyone else know about this?
New on screen trackpad is handy.
Seems manufacturer will add this function right into ssd, and reduce the dependency from OS. Am I right?
You got to be kidding me. Why? This is annoying as hell.
Apple hope to lock core system files modifying permissions to eliminate any unnecessary checks and repairs.
I thought that was because Rootless is supposed to make that unnecessary.
Presumably you can still do it in Terminal.

diskutil repairPermissions /
Wow I am an idiot. I skimmed your post and was saying 'partitions' in place of 'permissions'.
Yeah, they are totally gone. Doesn't mean they won't come back though!
Sorry for wrong statement. A logical volume was created. But somehow I cant revert it.
Did you try Terminal? That's the only way to revert it. Is it encrypted via FileVault?
speaking of FileVault... is there any update to it in the new OS X? seems its time for it to get an update!
Because it happens automatically now and also "rootless" prevents apps from changing system files and their permissions.
On a side note, I find it quite amusing how people have fallen in love with "repair permissions" over the years and think it makes any significant difference to how OS X runs.
Well, I repair permissions only when I have problems modifying files and not for the sake of it.
