    I have been having fairly consistent hard drive issues popping up every two weeks or so (see logs below) but with no performance setbacks. I have reinstalled the OS on the drive but have still continued to experience these errors. I have not noticed any huge performance difference but am still getting the messages. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with these other than wiping the drive and reinstalling the OS and my information app by app?

    Also, I should mention that the drive is a hybrid SSD/Traditional drive in the form of a Seagate Momentus XT. I am curious if that type of drive may be causing the issue and am debating switching back to a normal drive...

    Thanks!

    Same Issue...

    Hi, I'm experiencing the same disk verification results with my MBP i7, also with no noticeable performance setbacks. I just keep a very clean machine so I check it periodically and have found this to happen for the second time now. Mac Startup Disk DU fixes the issue but something keeps causing this to happen. Any info you've learned will be helpful as I would not be excited about a restore! :)

    thanks in advance,
    ac

    EDIT: Try booting up from your OSX disk, and running repair disk from there before reinstalling again.

    It looks like there is only one or two file/directory anomalies, which shouldn't really be any cause for concern, especially if you aren't seeing any performance hit.

    Still, if having a 100% clean drive is your priority (I know it is mine to be honest!) I would do a Time Machine backup to an external drive, reinstall OS X, then restore from the Time Machine backup. Quickest way to do it, no mucking around with installing applications one by one by one...
