Hi, there’s one partition on my seagate external usb hard drive that won’t mount. It may have happened after my MacBook pro battery died. The HDD is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with 5 partitions.
I ran Disk Utility’s first Aid on the drive and each partition. First Aid fails on the partition that won’t mount.
- How can I recover data on the partition? I’m ok if I can’t recover.
- Should I reformat the partition and continue to use it?
- What diagnostic tests or tools can I run on the external hard drive? Should I be worried the HDD is about to fail?
- MacBook Pro Mid-2014
- macOS Mojave 10.14.6
