Volume needs to be repaired on startup disk



There are two methods which can be used for repairing volume disk

1. Using Disk Utility


Disk Utility is the most common method and prescribed method used for the repairing. But when you are some how unable to use this option, the next possible solution is using option of Command prompt line repair Mac disk(FSCK)

  •  Make  Mac to continue in Single user environment (press +hold  Command & S keys during booting).
  • Now after process is executed , begin typing   after  "#'


  • This will when accomplish the file testing and repairing successfully, prompt back a message 

"the volume () appears to be ok"

  • If you receive any other message e.g. "File system was modified', then repeat the fsck command until "…ok " message is not received.
  • Now type command "reboot" to go to normal mode of OS X Mac. I hope this time you will get  this message instead of old one.
