OS X Mavericks :: (10.9.4) Files Show In Disk Utility But Not In Finder

Sep 3, 2014

Having trouble with my backup drive. It's a 1TB WD My Passport Ultra. 

The drive mounts in Finder, but is extremely slow. In Disk Utility, the drive shows the correct disk space usage and number of files; but in Finder it only shows the folders/files at the root level of the drive, and each has a size of zero bytes with no items:

What is happening? How can I access the data (it's obviously still there if DU shows the files) and (possibly) fix this?

OS X Mavericks :: BOOTCAMP Partition Not Visible In Finder - Not Mountable In Disk Utility

Sep 3, 2014

Did a fresh Bootcamp install of Windows 7 on my MBA running 10.9.4, switched back and forth a few times and now the BOOTCAMP partition doesn't show up in the left pane in Finder. I hopped into Disk Utility to see what was going on and it was there, just not mounted, so I clicked mount, was told it couldn't be mounted, and it suggested I run first aid on it. I clicked Verify, nothing useful to me, then Repair, and got quite a lot of feedback that I do not understand, and then after that it was still unmountable. 

I tried to copy everything it said into a pastebin because it was very long with lots of starting and stopping and counting percents inbetween, but it was over 500kb and that's the limit for free users on pastebin, so here's a trimmed version. [URL] .... I tried booting into Windows after that, and it jumped into System Repair. Apparently, according to Windows, my Boot Manager is missing or corrupt... and since I still can't access it from the Mac side of things, I thought I'd just wipe the partition in BootCamp Utility and start over.

Except instead, I get this error: "Your disk could not be restored to a single partition.An error occurred while restoring the disk to a single partition." 

Disk Utility let me wipe it but I still can't mount it, either, again suggesting I run first aid on it (this does nothing). I can't boot into the Mac's Recovery mode either. It just jumps straight to Internet Recovery. When I hold option upon boot, all three partitions show up (Mac, Recovery, Windows), but when I click the recovery one it loads for a bit and then the laptop just instantly shuts off.... Have I corrupted my internal harddrive perchance?

OS X Mavericks :: Why Does Finder Show Cover Art For Some Files But Not For Others

Aug 30, 2014

I'm using a 15" Macbook/retina, OS X 10.9.4, ITunes 11.3.1 (2).  ITunes shows the album art. But if I go to the files themselves, finder shows some with art some without.  Why?  I currently have one file that shows no art in icon or list view.  In column and cover flow, it shows art in the info pane but not the highlighted file.  I can move the file out of ITunes and the art shows up everywhere but icon view.  Other files, show the art in all the right places.

So, basically, ever since Lion, my external harddrive has had trouble being found while using the USB slot in the Airport Extreme.

OS X :: Won't Show External Drive / Visible In Disk Utility

Mar 11, 2010

My PowerBook G4 crashed and I need data from it. I already had bought an external drive and had begun loading some fotos and music. Now I'm at a friend's Mac, firewired and all, and the external drive (visible in the disk utility) isn't to be found.

I don't want to erase and reformat, obviously, ... can I drag it onto the desktop from the disk utility?

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Only Turns On In Recovery - Disk Utility Can't Repair Disk

Sep 12, 2014

Macbook Pro running on OSX Mavericks is having problems. 

Today I turned my Mac on, and it started up with a loading wheel and a loading bar. When the loading bar finished, the Mac turned itself off. I tried many times, same happened every time. I then went into OSX Recovery, started repairing Macintosh HD, but the error message saying "Disk Utility can't repair Macintosh HD" came up and now I don't now what to do. 

Is there any way I can back up my files in this situation? Is there any way I can repair the disk without having to erase all data and reinstalling OSX? Or do I really need to bring it to a Apple Store for repair?

MacBook :: Replacing Hard Drive - Nothing Show Up In Disk Utility

Aug 31, 2010

The HDD in my wife's black MacBook (2007, I think) won't boot up. I've run Disk Utility and have decided it's pretty much dead. I have a Carbon Copy backup, so the data is fine. I've tried replacing the drive twice now, and the MacBook simply won't "see" the new drives. When I install the drive, nothing shows up in Disk Utility (run either from the install disc or the Carbon Copy backup drive in a USB enclosure).

The new drives are formatted (I even copied the bootable backup to one of them), and the computer sees them just fine if I install them in a USB enclosure and hook them up that way. When I put them in the computer, though, no dice. Her old, corrupted HDD still showed up in Disk Utility when I reinstalled it, but the new drives don't.

OS X Mavericks :: Utility Disk - Check Disk Not Working?

Jun 29, 2014

I have a MacBook Pro running Mavericks. 

Recently I noticed that if I run Check Disk in Disk Utility, all the process works correctly but at the end it doesn't tell me that everything is correct (in green).

On the contrary, if I run it in recovery mode, (reboot w cmd-r), it works correctly to the end with the correct green result at the end.

OS X :: External Drive And Disks Don't Show On Desktop, Visible In Disk Utility, Can't Burn DVD

Feb 8, 2010

Disks I put in the Superdrive, external hard drives, or anything in the USB or Firewire (thumbdrive, etc) -- nothing shows up on the desktop. All are visible in Disk Utility. USB thumbdrives and external hard drives are visible in the sidebar in Finder, but disks are not (only disk utility).

Because of this I can't burn a disk because the disk is not being recognized. In Disk Utility, the external hard drives appear mounted and can be opened in Finder, but why aren't they appearing on my desktop (they used to)?

OS X :: Camcorder Showing Up In Disk Utility And IPhoto But No Longer In Finder?

Jul 17, 2009

I have a JVC Everio HD camcorder and am having some trouble importing the video. This morning, the camcorder was recognized by Finder and I could enter and view the files. However, the files are in .MOD/MP4 format so they would not import directly into iMovie.

This afternoon, I found a tutorial on how to convert the files so plugged my camcorder in again, only to find that Finder is no longer acknowledging it. It is recognized in iPhoto and Disk Utility.

Hardware :: Usb Drive In System Profiler But Not In Finder Or Disk Utility?

Jan 1, 2008

I purchased a black MacBook (10.4.11) last may and it's my first Mac. Thus far, I have only had one problem and that is that my I can't see my Motorola Z6m in finder or disk utility (but it is in system profiler). I also do not see it in Terminal under /Volumes. Inside the phone is a 2GB Verbatim microSD card that works fine in my card reader on the same machine. On a side note, bluetooth works fine.

The phone works as expected in the PCs I've tried it in, including a parallels vm running XP on the MacBook (I don't have access to any other Macs) which led me to believe it was a formatting issue, but then the card shouldn't work in the card reader either and it should still show up in disk utitlity. Am I not correct?

I have tried rebooting, unplugging/replugging the device, removing the battery, and reinstalling OS X (I wanted to do it to get rid of Unsanity's APE anyways). I have plugged it into either port on the MacBook with the same result. I have also emailed motorola tech support. Additionally, I have done quite a bit of googling and have found other people with the same issue, but none of the suggestions have worked for me or were otherwise unworkable (some suggested downgrading to 10.4.9).

I have also heard of trying it in a powered usb hub, but the thing is, why does it work through the virtual machine if a powered hub is required? Or am I missing something in this?

Hardware :: Seagate Hard Drive Not Recognized (Finder / Disk Utility)

Jan 14, 2009

I have purchased a Seagate 500gb 2.5 inch laptop hard drive to replace my feeble 120gb drive. I am trying to set up this drive using carbon copy cloner before changing it over, I'm using an external enclosure for this. The problem I'm having is the hard drive isn't recognized at all.
It's not showing up in finder or disk utility so I don't know how to format the drive.

I'm using Leopard 10.5.6

The instructions that cam with the enclosure mention setting the hard drive to function in master mode, what does this mean? I don't want to go to all the effort of changing the hard drive if there's some sort of problem, and I would rather clone my drive before removing it too.

OS X :: Disk Utility, Finder, Or Terminal Is Reporting Wrong Volume Size?

Aug 26, 2009

I partitioned my disk using Terminal's diskutil. I decided i didnt need the partition anymore, so i deleted it (using Disk Utility.app) and added the free space to my mac partition. Basically, Finder and Terminal dont show the free space added back, and Disk Utility shows the space added back to the disk. I tried restarting, repairing disk (which coincidentally had an unrelated problem), repairing permissions, but the problem is still happening

OS X V10.7 Lion :: All External Hard Drives Stopped Showing Up In Both Finder And Disk Utility?

May 12, 2012

i have this strange issue that occured just out of nowhere without me (knowingly) having contributed anything to it.yesterday i launched my iMac and my external firewire drive wasn't showing up in neither the finder nor on the desktop. i instantly thought about a hard drive crash, but soon tried other things to evaluate (or not) my guess. 

for instance, i unplugged the drive waited a few minutes before i plugged it in again. since this iomega drive is also equipped with a regular usb port i also switched cables and tried connecting it via the iMac usb sockets as well as via an usb hub without any luck. the drive still won't show up. so i launched the Disk Utility, to see if the drive needs some checking/repairing, but to my surprise it wasn't showing in Disk Utility either. 

thus far i only considered this to be an issue with only this particular external drive, but when i eventually switched on a 2nd external drive (this time an usb drive i use for Time Machine) that drive also refused to show up in either the Finder or the Disk Utility app. 

curious as i was, i then fired up a 3rd and 4th external drive and now had all 4 drives running at the same time. none of which were showing up, just as if they weren't even connected with the iMac. 

this strikes me as more than odd. i've heard about hard drive failures and crashes. they just occur over time. maybe and under some very strange coincidences it is possible that two external hard drives quit their jobs at the very same time, but seriously .... 4 of them?? i hardly think so. 

well, maybe it's the iMac's usb/firewire controller that's causing the trouble, i thought. but then again, my other connected devices (iPhone, iPad, Printer, Scanner, eyeTV) are functioning and get detected just fine as far as i can tell. 

i have no idea what's going on. i dismiss the idea of 4 external drives having crashed all at the same time just as much as i don't think that the iMac's usb/firewire controller has got any issues. re-formatting any of the 4 drives is out of the question and even if i'd consider such desperate measures, the Disk Utility wouldn't let me re-format anything anyhow, because the drives aren't listed there. i wish i could just use my Time Machine to resolve the issue but, as i mentioned earlier, i can't access the Time Machine because it also won't show up.

Hardware :: AEBS - MobileMe / Disk Doesn't Show Up In Finder

Since the AEBS firmware update I've been trying to access my usb-disk, connected to my Airport Extreme, through the internet using MobileMe, without success. My iMac and Powerbook show up in Finder under the 'Shared' tab but my airport-disk doesn't. Back to my Mac is giving a green light ... MobileMe registration in the Airport utility sticks and all settings seem to be OK. What's wrong?

ISP also provided a router (Philips) which is NAT and UPnP enabled ... AEBS is connected to the Philips with ethernet (Bridge Mode). Disk is HFS+ formatted ...

Anybody got the same problem? Anybody got a solution ...?

OS X Mavericks :: Disk Utility Refuses To Copy 164 GB To 318 GB Volume

Aug 29, 2014

I use Disk Utility (stand alone, on a USB key) to make backups of my system disk to an external disk and then transfer it from my home system to a MacBook and vice-versa when I need to travel. 

Recently, I upgraded from 10.9.2 to 10.9.3 and, not long later, to 10.9.4. In the same period, I also had an increase (not a very big one, just a few GB, less than 15) in the occupied space of that system disk. The current amount of data on it is 164.64 GB. 

I'm not sure if my problem comes from the sub-version upgrade, from the increase in data size, from both, or from something else. The home computer is an iMac with a 318.88 GB internal disk. The MacBook has a 500 GB internal disk. The partitions used on the external disk to make bootable backups are 400 GB big. 

I can backup both internal disks to the external partitions (and boot on the resulting external disk when I check that it is usable). I can also copy the external backups to the MacBook system disk and boot on the result without problem. 

But, recently, Disk Utility has started to refuse copying the content of the external backup partitions to the internal disk of the home system. It says there is insufficient space on the target volume. If the error message is correct, it means that I cannot backup 164.64 GB of data on a 318.88 GB volume! 

For the record, the external backup partitions are OK when verified with SOS.
