The drive works fine on Windows and Linux but gives me this error in OSX?

enter image description here

Is there a reason? Maybe something to run in either Windows or OSX to fix this?

It is an external drive I could try plugging directly in to see what it does although I haven't decided if that is a good idea. It is regular HDD not SSD. It will not let me repair disk permissions.

  • Please tell us more about the disk! Is it internal or external? HDD, SSD or thumb drive? What have your tried to fix it (repairing disk or permissions, etc)? Please be as detailed as you can – NoahL Jan 29 '17 at 23:41
  • @NoahL hmm external I could try plugging directly in to see what it does. HDD. It will not let me repair disk permissions. – William Jan 30 '17 at 0:19
  • Before you do anything, make sure you have a backup of it (either on Mac or PC) – NoahL Jan 30 '17 at 0:22
  • Btw, you can only repair permissions on a boot drive. Any other drive you can just set to ignore, Get Info on the drive itself to disable. – Tetsujin Jan 30 '17 at 6:19
  • @Tetsujin how do I ignore this issue? Windows and linux are okay with the drive. – William Jan 30 '17 at 14:39
