    I keep getting the below in my utility disk would appreciate advise on how to rectify it tks.

    Invalid volume file count
    (It should be 781802 instead of 781808)

    Invalid volume directory count
    (It should be 227656 instead of 227650)

    The volume Macintosh HD was found corrupt and needs to be repaired.

    Error: The disk needs to be repaired. Start ....and then use Disk Utility to repair this disk.

    Sorry for the stupid question, but have you tried starting Disk Utility and repairing the disk? Preferably from the recovery mode?

    You can't repair the drive you boot from.

    You can boot in single-user mode and run fsck -fy


    run disk utility in recovery mode (or booted from USB copy of OS X).

    Since the OP didn't understand that you can't repair the drive you boot from, I doubt he/she knows how to boot into Single User Mode = Command + S on reboot
    (after running fsck -fy from the command prompt, type exit to log out and back in as normal.
    To boot into the recovery partition, hold down the Option key at reboot, use the Tab key to select the disk you want to boot from, and hit Enter to start the reboot, Once the Recovery partition boots, there is a menu where you can choose Disk Utility.
    These 2 procedures do the same thing, not necessary to do both.
    If they don't solve the problem, post back for advice on the next step.

    I figured if the OP could find his way to the MacRumors forums, they could use Google once someone gave them an idea for a solution.
