When I installed Snow Leopard I must have somehow clicked non-journaled on the installation. At least, that is the only thing I can think of that I might have done. I understand it is nearly impossible to change back to journaled but I may have to reinstall a new OS to do so. In the mean time I have over a thousand photographs that I can't lose. Both for my website and historical of the Vietnam war that I shot when I was there in the combat zone in the Navy over there. Any help is very much appreciated. I have done web searches to find a solution but it dawned on me tonight to come here and register to get straight answers on this and the previously posted problem with the Genieo adware problem. If I have to reinstall an OS then I will wait for Yosemite to become available.
