I would like to delete a load of disk permissions. They are continually needing to be repaired and I don't recognize any of the names of the apps, and if I do, I would prefer to uninstall them.
Is this crazy? The main reason is that I am using drive genius 3 which continually monitors the health of the drive using 'drive pulse'. It comes up with 'critical' repairs needed each day and they are the same ones so I would prefer to just ditch them if possible?
Also, what I would really like to know is how I can use the command line to 'batch' delete these suckers.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
You do not need Drive Genius 3 and it is probably informing you of a lot of detail that is either inaccurate, worthless, or needlessly worrisome. You already wasted your money on it and now it is wasting your time.
You do not delete disk permissions. They are required and a normal part of the file system.
The only utility required to maintain OS X system disks and permissions is Disk Utility. It will report many permissions-related warnings that you may safely ignore. Here is a list of some of them: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1448
