    Any idea what this means? I get it at the startup of onyX when I run the s.m.a.r.t. status check at the beginning.

    That's why Onyx and all those things are crap. They only confuse people and they're crap. Did I mention they're crap.

    If you want to do that stuff then applejack is easier and better.

    it works perfectly otherwise, I was just curious what it could be because I have successfully ran the program without the error before. :)

    I used onyx for a while and system optimizer X, much the same. They are pretty useless and they give too many confusing options and alarming error messages. they only run internal scripts and clear caches.

    If you are having problems then you are better off manually deleting a specific pref or cache file rather than clearing everything out. But as I said applejack is less confusing. Plus I guarantee you will enjoy watching it work in single user mode. You will feel much more geeky and powerful and it impresses the ladeez too.

    You need to boot from your OS X disk and run Disk Utility to repair your Hard Drive.
