Hello: Last night I was cleaning my computer and creating a hard drive image. When I woke up, all was fine. But I noticed the hard drive image was gone without any errors. I went to create another one, with diskutil and it said "permission denied." I did forum searches, and they said to repair permissions. That seems to fix the problem, except in my case I can't do that. It gives me an error saying that the hard drive cannot be verified or repaired. I did a Get Info on the drive, and it says I can "read only." I tried to repair it from the command line, and it says: Error: -69789: Permissions verify or repair failed Underlying error: 26: POSIX reports: Text file busy I'm able to create folders, modify files, etc., but the hard drive has me as read only. I'm afraid to repair from the boot drive because it may deny me access to log back in if it fails. What's going on?
