Question about LaCie d2 Extreme (300793U) 500 GB Hard Drive
One week ago my LaCie external disk has been locked during a system reinstallation process in which the hard drive was plugged in. The message was that I had no permission to access it. I thought I would loose for ever all the files I have been backed up for years. But finally I have got the solution for that. There is a sofware called MacPilot (I used version 3.2.6, $20, 15-day trial) that fixes it. Once instaled, click TOOLS, then "Files&Folders" at left, then "Unlock File or Folder", press "Choose", it opens FINDER and then you click LacCie Disk. When the padlock symbol at the botton of LACie disapears, you can finally change the permissions to "read&Record". That's all, and I hope it helps.
I recommend that you always unplug external hard drivers during system reinstallation to prevent that.
