    Hey Guys,

    I was trying to partition my hard drive using Boot Camp, but then it said there was an error and that I should run disk utility. Ran disk utility, and it gave me a "Incorrect number of thread records" error on one of the lines. I put my Leopard CD back in and booted from it, launched disk utility, but there were no errors this time when running verify disk. Should I be concerned? My MBP is running 10.5.1 and is only 3 months old?

    Generally speaking, no, I wouldn't worry about it. I believe I've seen something similar to what you describe happen (not the boot camp part, but the error-reboot-no-error), and I assume it just means that whatever basic checks/maintenance the OS does on boot cleared up the error. Never had any issue come of it.

    Same error.. apparent more persistent

    I have seen this same error on my iMac (3 months old, running Tiger). I fixed the problem 2 days ago by booting off my install disks, but when I checked today, it came up with an identical error again.
    Incorrect block count for file Temp File 6
    (It should be 2973 instead of 0)
    Incorrect number of thread records
    and it said again -

    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    So I think there is some sort of a problem.
    Any suggestions ?

    Exact same thing with my laptop OSX 10.4.11

    just wanted to add that i have a mac laptop and i ran disk utility today just for kicks, and my 5 yo computer gave me the exactly same error message (to the letter), and my computer is running fine.
    good luck!

    to macdots post, that is and btw, my message did not give me any mention about the number of threads or which file/s they are located in.
