    So I've been having issues with the ssd on my rMBP. for some reason the ssd has been corrupting according to disk utility and required a repair from the recovery partition. first instance i did that and i lost about 60gb of free space which was odd. second occurrence happened and did the same thing. i was going to a full format and reinstall of osx 10.8. i had a bootcamp partition and removed it and thats when the system locked it itself. when it came back up it removed boot camp and now the ssd shows a max capacity of 412gb instead of the 500gb it had initially. so i decided to go to the genius bar and they took it in for diagnostics and repair. Told me they will replace the ssd if anything. Has anyone experienced similar issues?

    I exchanged one after it failed the AHT with some cryptic SATA code, that rMBP was having issues completing a TM backup without corruption. Did you run the AHT before taking it in?

    AHT = Apple Hardware Test.

    Hold down the "D" key while booting up. It scans your system for hardware problems. Make sure you have a Wi-Fi network available.
