    Same. Also unless you have something that messes them up it shouldn't have to be run too often anyway.

    Permissions are OS level. You're thinking Disk Repair? That is OK as well as it is just a directory repair.

    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.

    If repairing permissions results in error messages, some of these messages can be ignored and should be no cause for concern.
