There is internal SSD:

  • 1/4 - HFS+ - Secondary System Volume with macOS Sierra Audio HD
  • 1/4 - HFS+ - Shared Volume between two systems Shared HD
  • 1/2 - APFS - Main System Volume with macOS Mojave Mac HD

Then Audio HD was divided equally, one half formatted into FAT with the WIN HD name:

  • 1/8 - FAT - Empty Volume for Windows installation WIN HD
  • 1/8 - HFS+ - Empty Volume for macOS Sierra installation Audio HD
  • 1/4 - HFS+ - Shared Volume between two systems Shared HD
  • 1/2 - APFS - Main System Volume with macOS Mojave Mac HD

Using Bootcamp under Mojave from Mac HD was a try of Windows installation. Bootcamp utility crashed, Win HD and Shared HD disappeared.

Using StackExchange some solutions were founded. They all about GPT table issues.

Testdisk results:

The GPT table exists and it's fine. Audio HD and Mac HD working fine.

wxHexEditor 2was used to find any information about Volumes - still no luck:

  • 409640 - Right after EFI, WIN HD starts somewhere here I assume: 409640

  • 60904224 - Shared HD starts here probably, or as Testdisk shows us - here starts free space between volumes: 60904224

  • 118431744 - This is free space after Shared HD: 118431744

Rearranged GPT table using gpt utility:

Gives access to the Boot OS X Volume (index 3). Volume is full, but there are no files in finder. Shared HD was almost full also, so I assume that my data still exist somewhere there but I can't see any files:

Shared HD probably

There are only some hidden files on this Volume, with date modified - today.

Is there a way to restore all data from the Shared HD Volume? Also I want to notice that Volume was encrypted.

Thanks for your attention.

  • @klanomath I would really appreciate your help if that's possible. – zaslon Apr 16 at 10:04
