    Question Verify disk error message??
    I am using an iMac and just completed a "verify disk" from the utilities menu. I got the following error messages in RED:

    Verify disk:

    invalid volumes file count, invalid volume directory count, the volume found corrupt and needs to be repaired

    error: this disk needs to be repaired...then use disk utility to repair the disk



    What should I do? It obviously seems like their is or might be issues.

    Thanks


    P.S OS is Leopard 10.6.7 BUT the original OS was Tiger

    Boot your machine from the Snow Leopard disc, head for Disk Utility in Utilities on the menu bar and run the Repair Disk.

    Issue fixed
    thanks! I let it run its course.....and at the end saw "The volume was repaired successfully" in green font.

    I guess it fixed itself.

    Any idea what the issue was or means?

    Most often caused by hard powering down instead of shutting down properly.
    Sometimes, a failing drive.
