    Diskdrill warns me as there seems to be hardware issues. Apperantly there are suspicious log records. When I use Apple’s disk utility, all disks are working fine, no problems. Dont know what to do. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    How many disks are there connected to your Mac besides your main internal one? Have there been any external disks connected to it recently?

    Apart from the main disk, I have 3 other disks. All bays are occupied now. From time to time I back up on an external disk and my iPhone is probably also – when connected – considered an external drive. In my opinion a very common set up. I have been working like this for years and never had this kind of warning. Again according to disk utility, all seems to be working fine.

    Disk Drill detects I/O errors by reading your disk’s system log. If you believe these are false detections, clear those logs with this terminal command:

    sudo rm -r /var/log/asl/*

    If the error appears again, it’s a good sign that the disk is having hardware issues.

    mynameisJR sug corrected this issue for me. Instead of removing, I just created a backup directory and moved all the files there, then rebooted. Now I no longer get this error message. I will update if this changes.

    I have this error coming up, but it is saying it about my main HD. What can I do to fix the issue? typing – sudo rm -r /var/log/asl/* in my terminal returns with -bash: -: command not found

    Hi there, there was an excessive dash in the command above. Now corrected. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I tried everything. I used the code described above. It was never recognized. I looking in terminal for something else or maybe it was in your log. It said something about an unrecognized temperature value. I am running an App called iStats Menus which gives me menu bar status on temp, CPU, memory, etc. I was in fahrenheit not celsius. Changed it to Celsius and have not had a warning since. Go figure…

    I was wrong. Still getting the message. When I type in the sudo, I get it is not a recognized file. And typing has slowed to a crawl. Twirling rainbow while typing. Help!

    macintosh-9:~ rdalva$ sudo rm -r /var/log/asl/*
    rm: /var/log/asl/*: No such file or directory
    This is what I get. What does this mean? And what should I do?

    Hello, old thread. I hope @rdalva and co. had their issues resolved, though I wish the resolutions had been played out here, as I too am having this problem with my system HD. No spinning beach ball, but my system is acting quite wonky. Any advice? Halp!

    m1racidia, which issue exactly do you mean? If your drive is acting weirdly, you may use Disk Drill’s diagnostic features. This thread is about Suspicious Log Records reported by Disk Drill, and not other more common diagnostic tools for Macs, like Disk Utility. If you see this warning in Disk Drill, the recommendations are above.
