Last time I used Verify Permissions to resolve a problem on MacHD (SSD), it completely sh*gged my system big time. The Mac treated me a new user and I lost every single email and every application went into demo mode and needed the serial keying in.
I need to use VP again because I have some hierarchical folders in my Trash after a Data Rescue 3 session to recover some deleted stuff from an external SSD. The Trash won’t empty under any circumstances (I don’t have permission), including Secure empty and Terminal use. The folders sitting within one another are: Recovered movies / Recovered files / Scan / Scan2 / /v%9Esv%[F1%AD%FA<M]%E3R%F4t This last folder’s name starts with a /
I can’t remove the folders to desktop it merely copies itself and can’t rename that last folder. So it looks like VP is the only way. My real question to anyone who understands this well enough is looking at the screenshot link of Disk Utility VP suggestions is will this remove me as a user again or are its suggestions fairly innocuous?
