If it is case sensitive and you searched for "File.doc" you would not find "file.doc".  Also, you could have two different files in the same folder named, say FILE.DOC and file.doc.

Probably not a good idea to use case sensitive. It tends to confuse people.

No, or at least very unlikely. I can't think of one case in my experience. The 'case sensitive' thing has to do with the file system of the disk, not Mac OS X. It looks like the guy at the Apple store got it wrong.

If your disk is continuously getting corrupted it is probably a hardware problem. Either the disk itself is failing or needs to be replaced, or you have bad RAM.

Download and install the freeware SMARTReporter which will monitor your disk health. It puts a green icon in the menubar and then runs hourly SMART tests on the disk health in the background. If it detects symptoms of disk failure the green icon turns red. It can also be set to e-mail you. http://www.corecode.at/smartreporter/

I think the Guy At The Mac Store is confusing journaling and case sensitive. Case sensitive is unnecessary and potentially problematic for more than 99% of users. Journaling on the other hand can play a part in avoiding corruption for any computer that crashes (a lot or gets powered off while writes are taking place to the drive.) Journaling tells the hard drive what was being attempted when the failure occurred and tries to fix the problem.

Bottom Line:
Journaling = YES
CaSe SeSiTiVe = nO

Look for other reasons that your drive is becoming corrupted or start a new question.
