If Disk Utility cannot repair the disk then you need a stonger disk repair utility like Disk Warrior. Your other option is to reformat the hard drive and reinstall your files.

Thank you for the recommendation. I will look into Disk Warrior.
After originally posting I continued searching the forums and, of course, google. During my search I came across the following support article that essentially says to ignore the problem. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2028
Btw, I don't know if I have a "journaled" disk or not.

Repaired the disk using "Disk Utility."
Are you talking about Repairing Permissions using DU, or Repairing Disk via the Install Disk?

Hi Bee, based upon the OP's initial post I am assuming he means Repair Disk.
"The errors have been consistent: orphaned blocks, invalid volume free block count."
Those would show up on a Repair Disk not a Repair Permissions.

Correct. But to answer Bee, I use disk utility via restart, Command+R.

Any thoughts on the support article stating that the "errors" can be ignored?
Seems like someone at Apple oughta be able to design DU to advise user (such as moi) that the error can be ignored...wishful (ignorant) thinking.

That article does not pertain to the OS you are running. "This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple."
It pertains to using fsck not Disk Utility for:
Mac OS X 10.3.9, Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.5, Mac OS X Server 10.2, Mac OS X Server 10.3, Mac OS X Server 10.4, Mac OS X Server 10.4.7, Mac OS X Server 10.5

Hi sig --
Got it, thanks. I keep forgetting there are no more "disks!"

Yah, I saw that. But being that the underlying issue is the same; right now I'm leaning toward just ignoring it. The only reason I even know the "issue" exists is because I decided to verify the disk. Since I don't have any issues with startup, shutdown, etc., I'm going to continue to look for solutions short of formatting and resintallation.
Anyway, thank you for taking the time to suggest a solution.
