I haven't had any issues, but what does this mean?
Should I get it repaired?
Try to repair your Macintosh HD via Disk Utility started from the restore or installation DVD.
Mac OS X - Using Disk Utility to Repair a Disk
Basically it needs to be repaired, if fsck or Disk Utility don't repair it, save the data to an external.
Generally if you can't fix it, the file system will crash and burn LATER (don't know when) ... and you will get a flashing question mark at some point.
1. Save the data.
2. Fix the file system
3. If fsck or Disk Utility don't work, there are alternatives.
what is "fsk" and how to I fix with the disk utility? or dvd?
I am not sure how to go about it.
The only thing that really scares me is I don't have a large enough external to save all my data. I have been meaning to buy one, but never did.
Use spinnerlys' link, and if that fails, time to get more external storage or some DVDs.
Even if it works, backup the data.
Should be able to find DVDs for under $20 or a cheap USB drive big enough for the internal for $50-60.
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck
Just so I know, if I fix it, is this just a minor thing, or should I look into another internal HD for later?
is this a good external? I know it depends on taste and such, but the 1TB versions never do so well.
it repaired! yeah, thanks so much..now I shall try to pay it forward.
It needs to be repaired again! what the hell is going on? is my drive failing? I have a backup, I don't want to buy a new internal, wth
