First off, there is no reason to be running 10.2.3 when 10.2.4 is a free downloadable update. Second, apple's disk first aid utility is a general, cursory fixer. Really isnt going to do much for the bigger problems. You need something like Norton Disk Doctor or TechTool.

right... i'll update to .4
but schould i first update or run norton?
ray72Author Commented:
but anyway does anybody know what this err msg means?
Run norton, then update, then run nortain again just for kicks. The errors youre getting would indicate that your B-tree is having problems. Pretty common if you deal with lots of files.
This is common (but not normal), it is common because there is constant change of file offsets (positions) on your hdd.

Keep running Disk Utility a few times. These are minor errors, if you run DFA (OS 9) it will tell you they are minor.

You may also want to try, APPLE - S key combination at startup (after chime) and run:

fsck -fy

(file system check with forcing repair)

Unfortunately, only initializing your hdd will complete eradicate this problem.
