I was cleaning my MacBook Pro, erasing all unused files I had on it. After that I decided to erase the free space, so I will have all my files organized and cleaned the "used space". After that I verified the disk that shows the following error:
This disk needs to be repaired using the Recovery HD. Restart your computer, holding down the Command key and the R key until you see the Apple logo. When the OS X Utilities window appears, choose Disk Utility.
The questions are:
- My mac will go from scratch, means erase all the programs, files, music, pictures etc?
- What if I install Yosemite, will it solve my problems?
- If number 2 doesn't solve the problem, are there any steps I should take now?
I'm now backing up my MacBook on time machine, just in "case" I lose it all, and before I erased the free space all was fine!
