How can I resolve the
Error: -69845: File system verify or repair failed error I'm getting when trying to verify my hard drive?
So far these are the steps I've taken:
In Terminal I ran:
I identified the disk:
/dev/disk3 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +524.9 GB disk3 Physical Store disk2s2 1: APFS Volume Macintosh HD 103.7 GB disk3s1 2: APFS Volume Preboot 21.0 MB disk3s2 3: APFS Volume Recovery 519.0 MB disk3s3 4: APFS Volume VM 2.1 GB disk3s4
I tried to run a verification as follows:
diskutil verifyVolume disk3s1
This resulted in the following output/errors:
Verifying file system Volume is already unmounted Performing fsck_apfs -n -x /dev/rdisk3s1 error: failed to read container superblock File system check exit code is 8 Restoring the original state found as unmounted Error: -69845: File system verify or repair failed Underlying error: 8: Exec format error
I'm worried if I use the following command I will delete the existing data while repair ing the disk?
diskutil repairDisk disk3s1
The disk is encrypted and requires a password, and the disk does not appear in Disk Utility in macOS.
How can I proceed to resolve this?
