My book disappeared


#1

Dear All,

I bought WD external hard disk. I want to use it as mirror for my shared drive. I have Mac OS X Server 10.3.9 it was working fine. Any time I pluged it in there was My Book ican and the software driver was showing on the finder. I pluged it in to my Mac OS X 10.6.2 and installed the WD SmartWare. and backed up my MAc, later on I deleted all files on My Book. Now when I plug in the WD to my Mac Server 10.3.9 I can see the WD SmartWare softwares but My Book is missing.

Is there any way I can bring back My Book on my Mac OS X Server 10.3.9 please?

Thanks in advance

Yes, there is a way to bring back the My Book icon.

You may have deleted the MyBook partition and all data from the drive.

When partition is deleted the drive icon will not show up. 

Or you may have enable the security or setup password. If not, follow the suggestion below. 

Now you need to re-create a partition and format the drive.

FYI: formatting the drive will erase all data.

Here is how to do that,
