Just a curiosity question really. I'm still fairly "green" when it comes to the technical Mac stuff so please forgive my simplistic question.
I hear folks talking about running the "Repair Disk Permissions" often. They will mention to run it monthly.
Can someone, in layman's terms, explain to me what it is doing?
Are there potential problems to running it?
How often should I run it?
Is there a specific symptom I would look for that might trigger me to know I need to run it?
God bless you guys and thank you all in advance for your time!
