Weird Partition Table

#1 Post by skyblade » 04 Oct 2013, 09:29

Hi,

This is the first time that happen to me. I try to repair a external storage that was previously only use with Mountain Lion. So i launch testdisk (almost 24hours to finish the search, 1Tb external G-Driver) and here the result i have in the end. The size in sectors look weird, is there somebody who can help with this ?.

Thank you

It's strange. There should be a partition beginning at sector 409640...

Why is there a FAT 32 partition? Mountain Lion uses Mac OS Extended (Journaled), could be part of the problem.

Note that it can read and write FAT, but the OS needs to on a partition in the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format.
