Theoretically everything is fine with your Fusion Drive. Fusion Drives look like this. Disk0 is your SSD with 121 GB and disk1 is your HDD with ~1 TB (~1.121 TB summed up). The larger parts of your SSD (disk0s2) and your HDD (disk1s2) are pooled to a CoreStorage LVG (Fusion Drive: disk3) with a size of 967.8 GB. The rest is reserved for EFIs, a Recovery HD ...

To be able to create a multi-boot environment you have to revert from a CoreStorage partition layout to a standard partition layout. Start to internet recovery mode by pressing altcmdR while booting. Open Terminal.app in the menubar Utilities → Terminal enter diskutil cs revert LVUUID and hit the ⏎ key. (LVUUID is the Logical Volume UUID. You get it by ...

Set your Disk utility in to Debug mode. Now you should be able to "see" the hidden partitions like EFI and the Recovery HD. To enable the Debug mode use your Terminal: Enter the following command at the Terminal prompt: defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility DUDebugMenuEnabled 1 Needless to say, there is a reason for those partitions to be hidden, so do ...

To use sparsebundles and Time Machine backups, a NAS must support AFP and one must mount the share using the AFP protocol. AFP supports metadata transport that is not carried via SMB shares. CIF/SMB should be used with Windows-based systems. AFP should be used with Apple systems whenever possible. While you might be able to create a sparsebundle and use it ...

Hate to say it, buddy, but if disk0 and base system are all you got, and if base system is part of disk0, your MacBook Pro isn't seeing your hard drive. Reset the SMC if you can (Shift+Control+Option+Power while plugged in, then press power again after releasing all keys.) But if that doesn't work, it's either the SATA controller, the connection to the ...

It looks like you are using Core Storage. If you are, then what bjb is telling you to do may not work. The resident expert on this subject is klanomath. I would recommend one of his solutions but first could you answer some questions. This would help me determine what link to create. What version of OS X? What version of Windows? Do you have a fusion ...

Short Story: Use DiskWarrior My computer crashed and damaged directory files on my external hard drive. So it wouldn't mount but I could see it in Disk Utility (altho it wouldn't repair). Paid the $120 for the diskwarrior, went thru everything and it was fine. Gives you a preview to grab files too before they go in and fix the bug. Worth the money.

Personally, I would steer clear of Yosemite for a few more months. Look at all the complaints about it in the App Store review section. I've never seen anything that negative before. Your disk could be failing, but it probably just lost some linked files. I use Scannerz to test my drive periodically because I'm paranoid, even with Time Machine in place. ...

Did you notice that the interesting bits in the discussion seem to point to Disk Repair having performed a TRIM because Trim Enabler was installed? User jimsander says: My guess is it's a result of the 3rd party TRIM enabler - just did Disk Utility --> Repair on my machine (MacBook 2008 w/ Lion + Crucial SSD) and it didn't say it did a TRIM. It would ...

I use MacTheRipper to copy DVD and Handbrake convert to suitable formats for viewing on iPad etc. I do not know how it would handle copy protection.

The reason is that disk0 contains your actual drive. If you look there, you see that only 125.4 GB of space is allocated to the "Core Storage". Disk 1 is the logical volume (Macintosh HD) which resides in disk0s2 (also named Macintosh HD) so deleting disk1 won't be what you want to accomplish and the tool is preventing you from deleting that "logical ...

I use a app called OmniDisk Sweeper. It allows me to find all files and delete the one I do not want. In case of a application I use the AppCleaner application that not only deletes the app but all associated stuff with it.

Things to check for. Some Raid devices are set/Fixed for only one type of Raid 0 or 1. You should check the box and see if this can be used for anything other than Raid 1. Also there maybe software from WD on the drive that will change the Raid for you. If the WD is not hardware locked to be only a Raid 1 and you are unable to find WD software you can try ...
