Repair Startup Disk with Apple’s Disk Utility

The most obvious benefit that all Mac users enjoy is the ability to perform 'Live verification' of their computer's startup volume using the inbuilt Apple's Disk Utility. However, this feature can be only used with Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)-formatted (HFS+J) volumes. When you run Disk Utility to perform Live Verification, your system may appear slow and some applications may take a longer time than usual to start. If the Disk Utility reports errors, you will have to boot your computer using the Mac OS X bootable DVD and again run Disk Utility to repair those errors.
