Hi, I’ve had 2 WD Passports die this year and I think I’m about to lose my 3rd:
I have a WD My Passport 4 TB that won’t mount on any Mac, here are the errors I get from Running Disk Utility:
Partition map repair failed while adjusting structures to fit current whole disk size.
Then I try running Diskwarrior:
"directory cannot be rebuilt due to disk hardware failure 5 1921"
So I try using WD Drive Utilities, which passes as this:
SMART Status passed
But still does not mount. This is an Encrypted Disk, occasionally it tries to mount and asks for my Password, but does not recognise the password.
So assuming the password has been corrupted, Can I somehow bypass this? Is there anything else I can try without formatting it?
Any help appreciated
