    How much time will the repair disk permission take in Mac?

    I started the repair disk permission in my Mac for speeding up the performance but it is just running for the past 45 minutes and doesn't stop at all. Can you please tell me how much time will take to complete or I can stop the process? Is there any better way to increase the performance in my Mac without wasting much time?

    Hello friend,


    Don't worry i have the solution for your problem it is:-

    The time taken for repairing disk permission mainly depends on the size of the disk.

    It approximately takes 2- 3 minutes for 320 GB of space.

    All the best......

    Dear friend,
    1.According to me I wouldn't worry if it take less than a day.
    2.Moreover it depends on how large your disk is, and how many files are there.
    (or if you have multiple disks.. and how much memory you have, any other programs that might be running.. etc.)

    thank you.

    Hello Dear friends.


    It depends upon the Size of the disk . and the files containing in it.

    If the disk contains many files , and Games .

    Games Obviously contains huge bits of data in the folder. every single file is known for

    its value. for 1TB it might take upto 90 Minutes .

    while the fragmentation , close all the background apps or tabs running .

    and donot open the drives while the defragmentation process is carrying on.

    Be patient and Wait until all the Process is done.


    Thank you..

    Dear Friend..

    Don't worry about the time of repair disk.
    It constantly depends upon your Hard Disk size, If it is more then 500 GB, then it obvious, it use to take more then an hour
    But if it is less then that, then it should be hardly takes 40 to 50 minutes.

    For quick disk repair, i think you should close all your applications which is running behind.
    Then insert the CD in your MacBook, restart the device and start repair procedure.
    That will help you more to finish your task.

    Disk Fragmentation is another best, suitable and most convenient option for this.
    It manages all the files which already fragmented in your Mac OS.

    A part from this, you can also install a software which is very quick to repair the disk in your Mac OS.
    The name of the software is MOVE Repair
    http://www.movrepair.net/download/movrepair.zip

    This takes very less time and repair OS as well.
    Thank you..

    Well dear it fully depends upon how much data is present in the disk.how much files,games and application it conains.
    If the disk contains less data of files and games then surely it will take less time.
    If the disk contains more data and the more files then it will take some extra time.
    I think your problem will be solved now.thank you
