I have a very serious problem with my external hard drive. I accidentally unplugged the usb cable without ejecting the drive, now it is not recognized neither in windows nor mac. when I opened disk utility in mac i get this information:
Disk Description :disk1
Total Capacity : 6.98 EB (6,979,792,214,784,740,000 Bytes)
Connection Bus : USB
Write Status : Read/Write
Connection Type :External
S.M.A.R.T. Status : Not Supported
USB Serial Number : C14251553F88F54E598F291C32112D
Partition Map Scheme : Unformatted
I couldn’t repair the disk as the option is grayed out in DU and I can’t erase it, restore it or partition the HD as I keep getting the error:
"POSIX reports: The operation couldn’t be completed. Invalid argument "
I have a WD My Book 1TB for mac, Model NO: WD 10000H1U - 00
Please Help. Thanks.
