    I recommend once a month to rebuild disk permissions. Open utilities folder and launch disk utility then select rebuild permissions. This keeps every thing in place and can also fix weird things such as no wifi etc. If you have serious problem and i will say that is rare launch your startup dvd system disk and perform it from there. You can also use control, option P, R to reset prams ( hold all keys at once on start up) I will say again I have hardly had to do this on any Mac over past 2 years as they are solid and reliable. Hope this answers your question.

    I've had my iMac about a year now and it hasn't needed hardly any maintenance, I'll be sure to take some tips from here myself though!

    I use SuperDuper to do a daily backup of my iMac and the s/w Repairs Disk Permissions prior to the back up. I also use MacCleanse securely scans your system for activity and erases the desired information, removes the necessary files, and reports all errors. MacPilot which can enable and disable hidden features in Mac OS X, optimize and repair your system, and perform numerous routine maintenance operations is another all time favorite I use for maintenance.

    I have to repair disk on my local HD I think because it won't let me partition my HD with bootcamp because my files are so spread out over my HD. However without a backup HD or space to backup data I just accept I can't partition.
