Hi,

I have a 13inch Macbook Pro Mid-2012 with 2.9GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024MB and 750gb SATA Disk.

I seem to always be getting permission errors that I constantly need to repair. I am wondering if there is anything that I need to do to fix these issues?

Here is the latest issues that came up;
Group differs on “Library/Printers/InstalledPrinters.plist”; should be 80; group is 0.Permissions differ on “Library/Printers/InstalledPrinters.plist”; should be -rw-rw-rw- ; they are -rw-r--r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Info.plist”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Info.plist”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntermediateCodec”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntermediateCodec”; should be -rwxr-xr-x ; they are -rwxrwxr-x .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/PkgInfo”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/PkgInfo”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/AppleIntermediateCodec.rsrc”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/AppleIntermediateCodec.rsrc”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/French.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/French.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/German.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/German.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/Japanese.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/Japanese.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/Spanish.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/Spanish.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/zh_CN.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/Resources/zh_CN.lproj/Localized.rsrc”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/_CodeSignature/CodeResources”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/_CodeSignature/CodeResources”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Group differs on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/version.plist”; should be 0; group is 80.Permissions differ on “Library/QuickTime/AppleIntermediateCodec.component/Contents/version.plist”; should be -rw-r--r-- ; they are -rw-rw-r-- .Warning: SUID file “System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent” has been modified and will not be repaired.
Please please please is there anyone that can help?

Thanks,

Is your HD one you installed and made by Seagate by any chance?

Nope, this is the one that came with the computer from Apple which is a 750.16GB Toshiba MK7559GSXF Media according the Disk Utility.

Hi,

If repairing permissions results in error messages, some of these messages can be ignored and should be no cause for concern.
Some people repair, or recommend repairing permissions for situations where it isn't appropriate. Repairing permissions only addresses very specific issues. It is not a "cure all" or a general performance enhancer, and doesn't need to be done on a regular basis. It also doesn't address permissions problems with your files or 3rd party apps.
Disk Utility repairs the permissions for files installed by the Mac OS X Installer, Software Update, or an Apple software installer. It doesn’t repair permissions for your documents, your home folder, and third-party applications. You can verify or repair permissions only on a disk with Mac OS X installed.
Does Disk Utility check permissions on all files? Files that aren't installed as part of an Apple-originated installer package are not listed in a receipt and therefore are not checked. For example, if you install an application using a non-Apple installer application, or by copying it from a disk image, network volume, or other disk instead of installing it via Installer, a receipt file isn't created. This is expected. Some applications are designed to be installed in one of those ways. Also, certain files whose permissions can be changed during normal usage without affecting their function are intentionally not checked.

I've had permissions issues like those on just about every Mac I've owned and I've never had any issues.
