I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Apple OS X Disk Utility Stops or appears to be incomplete on Boot Disk

Catchy Title huh?

The problem arises when you use Disk Utility to hopefully get those little green magic words "The volume 2TB Internal appears to be OK." or whatever you call your boot volume after you verify the disk.

This is while you are booted off the disk, not when booted off the DVD which should work every time.

A check on the whole disk works, but a check on the volume of your boot disk appears to fail.

(You do run disk utility to check your disk every now and then, right? And have a SMART Monitor running, right?)

Well the workaround fix is in.

Here's what worked for me:

"The volume 2TB Internal appears to be OK." will show up on my Mac Pro (10.9.3) if I do this:
1. Open a Finder window
2. Click the Disk Utility Verify button
3. Click on the open Finder window
4. Wait for the Disk Utility to finish verifying
5. Switch back to Disk Utility and the green (The volume Data appears to be OK.) is displayed.

The original thread showed it worked on an iMac also.
