    Hi all

    On my MBA when I verify the disk on Macintosh HD it says all is fine. However when I verify disk on 121.33 GB APPLE SSD i get: a pop up alert saying: Storage system verify or repair failed. Any suggestions in what I should do? As it just gives me a button to press okay and thats it.

    Do a command-option-r (all three keys at once) boot to Internet recovery. Once the recovery screen come up start Disk Util and select the drive itself at the top and do a disk repair. After it is done, do a verify disk to make sure the error is gone. Then quit recovery and restart.

    Of note: You need to reboot your computer, holding Command-Option-R before the start-up chime occurs. Keep the key combination held down until the computer asks you how you connect to the Internet.

    I see you have a 128GB SSD. Do you have a 2012 MBA?

    issue solved. it was because i had firevault 2 enabled, which caused this error. all working now.
