Hey everyone, I've been lurking around here for a while but this is my first post. Today I was organizing and deleting files on my macbook pro- basically doing my first real cleanup since I bought the computer in 2009. Once in my "cleaning mode", I decided what the hell, Ill check out the disk utility which I've never used before and see if this can help further clean up my machine. Anywho, not really knowing what I am doing I first clicked "repair disk permissions" and 5 min or so later it finished up without any issue. Next, I clicked "Verify Disk" and after a minute or so I got an error message that said my disk needs repairing For starters, my computer runs just fine. I have not noticed any issues and I'm always running multiple programs at once. Ive read several posts that describe this error message but the OP always seems to have a slow machine or some other issue to begin with. I guess my questions are... 1) What exactly does this error message mean? 2) What could cause this any why am I getting this message when my computer seems to run flawlessly? 3)Do I need to boot it from the osx discs and attempt to repair it? I am incline to ignor this since everythign SEEMS fine. Thanks in advance!
