Am using a MacBook Pro, 10.6.8. What is the Mac equivalent of ChkDsk please? I wish to scan/search for possible corrupted files, especially MP3, iTunes files.
Thank you very much

Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities) or fsck in Single User Mode.

Select your disk from the list on the left, click the First Aid tab, and click either Verify Disk or Repair Disk. That's it.

Very clear and simple. Does not require that I be an advanced user to comprehend.
Thank you very much
