hey everyone,

so, i take it this is a bad thing? (see attached) It's really not a big deal since i backed everything up on the drive. It's also almost 9 years old (original HD that came with my mac). Disk Util wont even give me the choice to repair it. Oh well. if there's anything i can do to fix it that's great, if not, no biggie. thank the lord i bought an external hd last night. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
