I accidentally ran a command (once) that I copied and pasted on disk1 instead of changing it to the appropriate disk and now I'm really worried I may have damaged my primary disk's (SSD) partition table. The MacBook's still running fine, but I'm afraid to reboot it.
The command was:
diskutil partitionDisk disk1 GPT ExFAT "Seagate_02" 0g
And the error was:
You cannot manually partition an existing APFS Container disk.
Would this have actually made any changes since it errored out? What can I check?
I also still have the
diskutil list results from before and after I ran the command, which look the same:
/dev/disk1 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +912.4 GB disk1 Physical Store disk0s2 1: APFS Volume Macintosh HD 444.2 GB disk1s1 2: APFS Volume Preboot 19.7 MB disk1s2 3: APFS Volume Recovery 506.6 MB disk1s3 4: APFS Volume VM 4.3 GB disk1s4
I'm running macOS 10.13.2.
