Does my Hard Drive need to be replaced?

NOTE: When verifying disk permissions i get this message;

PERMISSIONS DIFFER ON: "usr/share/derby' should be drwxr-x they are lrwxr-x

then the other message states:

WARNING: SUID file "System/Library/ been modified and will not be repaired.

What do these messages mean? I get these messages when trying to repair permissions. Otherwise the disk has been verified and is ok. What does this error and warning message mean?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Per this discussion, people (and supposedly also Apple) seem to think that the drive is fine and these errors should be ignored:

Thanx rdk, I only checked the permissions because i couldnt create a partition via bootcamp. It gave an error stating that i needed to format my disk as a single MacOS extended (journaled), but when i check disk utility it says the drive is already formatted this way.


I also see that people that are trying to clone their drives are getting the same error message that i get when trying to create a partition, and that is that some of the files cant be transferred. coincidentally they"re getting the same error messages.
