While trying to use asr in terminal to copy a failing HDD's contents to empty external HD #1, I facepalm set the target as BACKUP HD #2.
When I hit enter, asr went through it's normal steps, and then hit PSTT 0 100 start restore and hung there for longer than I expected it to. Then I realized that I put the wrong target volume, and terminated the window.
Now, when I plug BACKUP HD #2 into my laptop, it doesn't mount. I can see it in Disk Utility and can run repair on it, but get the following:
"Problems were found with the partition map, that may prevent booting"
Trying to mount it in the terminal fails too.
I have Disk Warrior, and it can see the hard drive (and even shows the name I set for it, whereas Disk Utility shows it as Untitled) but it says the drive is too big.
I have Drive Genius, but it shows up under devices and not volumes, so I can't repair it there either.
I bought Disk Drill, scanned the drive, but it categorized the found files by type - video/pictures/audio/etc and dumped all file name info - they're now file 000001.jpg etc. So I've lost file names and folder structure. I'm so grateful and happy to be able to have my files back, now hoping there's a way to get my structure/names back on the old drive...
After 4 days of scanning with TestDisk, here are the results, but I don't know what to do next. Any ideas?
