I've had my G5 (2.0GHZ, 3GB RAM) for nearly a couple years now, and it's starting to act kind of weird. For one, Dashboard is extremely slow (takes about 20 seconds to load) and I've been getting a lot of "beach balls of death." Usually the Repair Disk/Repair Permissions thing works fine. It finds stuff, fixes it all. Repair permissions still works, but Repair Disk either freezes up (it acts like it's starting, but it either doesn't do anything or times out) or it gives me this message: Verifying volume narcofiche 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 narcofiche needs to be repaired. Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit 1 HFS volume checked Volume needs repair Is this an issue that I should worry about? Is this the beginning of the end of my internal hard drive? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, narco.
