Disk utilities doesn't repair permissions.

Therefore I did the following explain at http://osxdaily.com/2011/11/15/repair-user-permissions-in-mac-os-x-lion/:

 

  1.Restart Lion and hold down the Command and R keys.

2.You will boot into the Repair Utilities screen. On top, in the Menu Bar click the Utilities item then select Terminal.

3.In the Terminal window, type resetpassword and hit Return.

4.The Password reset utility launches, but you’re not going to reset the password. Instead, click on the icon for your Mac’s hard drive at the top. From the drop-down below it, select the user account where you are having issues.

5.At the bottom of the window, you’ll see an area labeled ‘Reset Home Directory Permissions and ACLs’. Click the Reset button there.

 

But it doen't semm to work !

Thank you to send me your solution.

    Hi Linc

    My Backup with CCC to my Qnap 269 is working partially with a lot of errors (permissions) since I have replaced my internal HD from 750 Go to 1 To.In order to replace it I did the following :

    1) Create a new account named Backup

    2) With this account to clone with CCC from my 750 Go internal HD to 1To external HD

    3) Replace the 750 Go with the 1 To

    4) Back to my former account

     

    When I use HD Utilities from Apple a huge numbers of errors is reported (not only the usual errors which are reported by Apple itself)

    I don't see anything about a permission error in the CCC log. You would have to refer to the developer for help with those errors. The messages from Disk Utility are meaningless, and repairing permissions is a waste of time unless you have an indication of a permission error involving system files, which you don't, or a boot failure.
