How to Solve Mac disk issues with Disk utility

With the passage of time , your computer doesn’t start properly, you face sluggish behavior. Mac OS X includes two utilities for this —Disk Utility and fsck (a command-line utility). You can also use these even when your computer starts just fine but you want to check the disk health for possible file system issues.

In some cases, file system errors may prevent your computer from starting up. This can occur after an improper shut down, forced restart, or power interruption. If your computer shows any of the following symptoms on start up, use a disk repair utility.

If you're using Mac OS X 10.2 or later, you can start up your computer in Safe Mode, which includes an automatic disk check and repair. 

     Disk Utility:- Mac users are familiar with Disk Utility.  It’s used to format hard drives, create RAID arrays, mount volumes, burn disk images (.dmg files), and fix basic disk problems.  The Repair Disk function can be used on any non-startup drive and can fix simple volume or file system errors. Repair Permissions is the other kind of maintenance Disk Utility can do.   
        Open the Disk Utility 
        Click the First Aid Tab 
        Click the OS X Volume
        Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk

Tip: With Mac OS X v10.6 and earlier, you should always start up your computer from an Install or Restore disc when using Disk Utility to verify or repair your start up volume. Otherwise, you might see some disk error messages.
