I'm trying to access an encrypted partition on an external hard drive. My dad formatted it in OS X Lion before sending me the drive. I am running Snow Leopard with no access to a Lion install... however, I can only access the non-encrypted partition. Supposedly it works fine on Lion, and I'm guessing it has something to do with the switch from FileVault to FileVault 2, but am at a loss as to what to do or if there is any way to access the partition without using Lion.
/dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk2 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1 2: Apple_HFS WD1T 43.0 GB disk2s2 3: Apple_CoreStorage Incompatible Format 956.7 GB disk2s3 4: Apple_Boot Boot OS X 134.2 MB disk2s4
When I plug in the drive, the HFS partition mounts fine. However, I'm not able to mount the
disk2s3 partition, and just get an "Incompatible Format" error.
Any help appreciated! Thanks in advance.
