I have a fairly new LaCie d2 4TB hard drive (roughly one year old). Some days ago it wouldn't show up anymore and now I looked into the issue.
In disk utility the disk is unmounted. When hitting "mount" I get this error:
When trying to repair the disk I get the
exit code 8 and
Invalid node structure (8, 0) Invalid B-tree node size (8, 0)
I also have Bootcamp installed and Windows can see the drive; it seems normal to me there. But it is formatted as Mac OS Extended so Windows can't do anything with it. Do you have any idea what I can do other than reformat?
I read the in a different post that you can try the repair process in the terminal or boot into windows and eject the drive properly (yet, Windows isn't even mounting a Mac OS Extended journaled drive, so how should I unmount it. Also a normal shutdown should do this job, too, and I have done that multiple times in both macOS and Windows). I have tried the terminal commands from the mentioned post, the only interesting part is, when using the
sudo fsck_hfs -r -d /dev/disk5s2 command I get this error, where it also shows error 7.

(The files are backed up, so it would be ok to reformat, but I would prefer being able to repair it)
I would be very happy for any answers. Thank you!
