    Maybe you have some things in your /.vol directory that shouldn't normally be there. As I understand it, there shouldn't be anything actually present under that directory.

    Paste the following command line into a Terminal.app window.
    Code:
    ls -la /.vol
    If nothing happens, press the RETURN key on your keyboard.

    Then drag-select the entire command output, press ⌘C to copy it to the clipboard, then paste it into a post on this thread, using CODE tags around the pasted output.
