Question about SmartDisk Crossfire Desktop (xf160f) 160 GB Hard Drive
I have this partitioned into 3 parts. Only two of them will mount. The other one shows up in utilities but is grayed out. Does anyone know of a way to make this mount. What happened was the computer was not responding and force quit would not work so I resorted to hitting the power button to shut down. External drives should be ejected properly I know but I had no other choice. I have had this problem before and eventually it read the drive again (not sure what I did then other than restart several times). Can anyone help?
It sounds like you're on a mac. I would run Disk Utility (in your Appications>Utilities folder) select the partition, and click the "Repair Disk" button. If that doesn't work, you may have to purchase a program like "Disk Warrior" (about $100) and that should take care of the problem.
