    Hello, I am on a MBA 2012 with Lion. My 'Finder' stalled so I had to force quit it. Then I decided to restart because it wouldn't actually force quit. This just locked my computer on a grey background, but my mouse still worked. I just couldn't do anything. I just forced shutdown with the power button. (This happened twice before I found out it was my external hdd causing Finder to stall).

    Anyway, I was wondering if this causes system files to be corrupted like in Windows? I did permission repair and disk check and nothing was abnormal.

    Thanks for any replies.

    The chance to be corrupted is very small. Normally, do not forced shutdown the machine when the hard disk is being written.
