We need the OP on this board.

"Wow! Thank you for helping me. I am sorry for not being Mac savvy or anything. I love my Mac and just don't want to do anything to screw it up. I promise to read everything that suggested to me too."

You could call him stoopid all day and he would just appreciate the help.

Avoid third-party "disk utilities." You'll never need them if you have adequate backups. In the unlikely event that a volume has directory damage that you can't repair with the built-in Disk Utility, you should consider the drive to have failed. Replace it and restore from backup.

um, no.

and putting disk utilities in quotes to belittle them makes you look even stupider, Linc.

Egggactly ~!~!~!~

During my first forays into the Mac help forums like the early "dealmac" site that was also during the Netscape daze, text was was displayed in black & white pages. Yet there was humor, help and advice.
Sometimes I think some of that ernest naiveté has been lost here and elsewhere for some reason.

Well said my friend. Though I must say that the atmosphere around here is quite uplifting the majority of the time, especially as compared to other spots.
