my external hard drive worked fine last week. I cannot get it to mount or show up. here is what it looks like, and here is what i have tried.
First aid does nothing, mount does nothing.
I have tried this in terminal:
mount -t /dev/disk2 mount force -t /dev/disk2 diskutil verifyDisk /dev/disk2 diskutil repairDisk /dev/disk2 diskutil repairDisk /dev/disk2
and got back this:
Jennas-MacBook-Pro:~ jmeacham$ diskutil verifyDisk /dev/disk2 Started partition map verification on disk2 Checking prerequisites Checking the partition list Checking the partition map size Checking for an EFI system partition Checking the EFI system partition's size Checking the EFI system partition's file system [ / 0%..10%..20%......................................... ] diskutil repairDisk /dev/disk2 Checking the EFI system partition's folder content Checking all HFS data partition loader spaces Checking booter partitions Checking Core Storage Physical Volume partitions The partition map appears to be OK Finished partition map verification on disk2 Jennas-MacBook-Pro:~ jmeacham$ diskutil repairDisk /dev/disk2 Repairing the partition map might erase disk2s1, proceed? (y/N)
I said NO because i cannot lose what is on this hard drive.
I am NOT very computer literate, so honestly don't really know what the terminal message means, i just know i can't risk loss if I don't know what will happen.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Also if you could be as detailed as possible in instruction because like I said I am kinda dumb about computers. Thank you so much for any help.
