Just bought Drive Genius 4. Think I got a bargain - $40.00 (US, I assume). However, DG4 doesn't seem to repair permissions. It says dskutil did not recognize verb "repair Permissions"; type "dskutil" for a list.
Has anyone had the same problem? Were you able to fix it?

MBPro
El Capitan 10.11.1

Thanks for your help

The bleeding edge types can confirm or refute this. I believe that the list of "special" permissions has grown so long in El Capitan that Apple abandoned the permissions repair feature altogether.

El Cap has indeed abandoned the possibility of repairing permissions, as far as I've read.

Hi ehMacMan,

Thx for the reply. I used Onyx and it did it without a problem. Quite quickly, too.

Just upgraded to version 4.2. Repair permissions is no longer listed as a function of the app.
