Just because we use Disc Utility to find and correct problems doesn't mean that Disc Utlity itself can't fall victim to such problems. I suspect that my copy has been corrupted in a way that renders it useless for the purpose intended. Here are my reasons for thinking so: (1) The past several times I've used it, it didn't find one error or make one comment, except to say that everything is okay. That never happened before. There have always been many, many comments about the anomalies that it had found, and what it had done, if anything, to correct them. (2) It now says that everything is okay but then appers to keep checking for several more minutes before finishing.


If you agree that I might have a problem with Disc Utility, how should I go about fixing it?

    Frankly, nothing you stated is indicative of anything except: you don't have any problems to fix. Mine does the same thing. Unless you won't be satisfied by no problems. I can suggest how to create problems including a couple that DU cannot fix.


    Count me in the "disagree" column.

    Respectfully, Kappy and I agree to disagree with you.


    It is perfectly normal for Disk Utility to report, or not report, problems to fix. It is normal for it to report something to fix, and continue for several more tedious minutes, whether it finds something additional to report, or not. That is simply how it was written.

    I am having a problem with my disc utility.  It has that darn circle with the line going through it.

    I did receive some message telling me that the disc utility will not work with my Mac OS 10.8.2

    How do I fix this?
