I'm running Mountain Lion on my Mid 2009 MBP. Recently(for last few months) it's acting really slow. Simplest actions are taking forever to perform. So I
verified disk using the
Disk Utility and it said that
Incorrect number of file hard links and
The volume Macintosh HD was found corrupt and needs to be repaired. It suggested me to restart and repair. I did that but about a week later it became slow again. I verified again and this time also it gave the same message.
Can I be certain that it's a fault of the HDD and just change it?
