I'm hoping someone can help! I recently downloaded a torrent directly onto an external hard drive, (using a 2009 MacBook Pro and 1TB Seagate Expansion portable Drive) somehow during the download the drive was accidentally ejected, since this incident when I plug the drive back in it’s having problems reading.
The drive works fine for about 10 minutes, I can read/copy/paste and access files but then starts to wreak havoc; apps hangs, it hangs the Finder, etc.
I’ve tried repairing it in Disk Utility, which reads and repairs this disk but problems inevitably continue as described above.
I’ve deleted the Torrent file also. All my files on this external drive so re-formatting is not an option until I can retrieve them.
