External HD Recovery

#1 Post by qbrisbane »

I am in the process of using TestDisk to recover a partition on my external hard drive. I create and analyze the drive and receive the below:

Disk /dev/rdisk2 - 1000 GB / 931 GiB - 1953458176 sectors (RO)
Partition Start End Size in sectors
>P EFI System 40 409639 409600 [EFI]
P Mac HFS 409640 1953195991 1952786352

Unfortunately, I am unable to view the "Mac HFS" because it just will not allow me to arrow down to it. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thank you for your help!
