Unable to recover partition

#1 Post by josetorresvicente »

Dear friends,

I have a Firewire HD with three equal partitions. One of them doesn't mount. I've trying to solve the problem with TestDisk with no success so far. Now it's even worse because I followed some wrong tutorial and now I have 8 partitions instead of three and the partition that I need remains unmounted. Any help? I'm using Mac OS 10.8.

Kind regards,

Have you rewritten the partition table ? If it's the case, you should revert to the original partition table.
Once it's done, use fsck to fix the filesystem, see https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf for details.
