    Checking Catalog file.
    Checking multi-linked files.
    Checking Catalog hierarchy.
    Checking Extended Attributes file.
    Checking volume bitmap.
    Volume Bit Map needs minor repair
    Checking volume information.
    Invalid volume free block count
    Invalid volume free block count
    uld be %@ instead of %@)",2)
    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair

    im recalibrating my battery in a sec, and will be rebooting my system, but does anyone have any suggestions... ive run disk verify 3 times now and all three times i get the spinning beach ball and everything will almost freeze up and then that will pop up... idk

    You need to either boot from the OSX disc and run Disk Utility from there to repair our volume, or you need to run fsck. Either of these options should resolve this issue. Try to back everything up beforehand, just in case. :)
