2TB USB drive not showing in diskutil, fsck not running, not showing in Finder

I recently purchased a 2TB USB drive and loaded a few files onto it after formatting it to FAT32 so I could use it on my TV.

I accidentally unplugged it without unmounting/ejecting it first and ever since I have been unable to view it in Finder.

I’ve also tried looking for it with diskutil but it does not show. Also, I have checked for fsck and it is not running on my system. Similarly, the disk does not show in Disk Utility.

I’ve tried plugging it into two separate TVs but it is not recognised on either.

What are my options to try and resuscitate this drive?

External hard drive I use for Time Machine corrupted, won’t mount

Today I plugged in my external hard drive to back up to Time Machine, but it won’t mount. I open up Disk Utility, run First Aid, and am greeted with a message that says “First Aid found corruption that needs to be repaired.” When I click Show Details, the last few lines are:

Load and verify Logical Volumes B-Trees 
Unable to bootstrap transaction group 282114: incorrect block type 
No valid commit checkpoint found
The volume 04890072-B347-41EB-AB08-87EC029276D8 was found corrupt and needs to be repaired
Storage system check exit code is 1.
Problems were found with the partition map which might prevent booting
Operation successful.

I see that the volume is corrupted, but is there a way to recover it?

I have tried mounting it through the terminal, ala diskutil mountDisk readOnly /dev/disk1, but am greeted with the message saying it failed to mount (I don’t know what I was expecting xD). The drive is encrypted, so I did try diskutil cs unlockvolume 04890072-B347-41EB-AB08-87EC029276D8 -stdinpassphrase, but it tells me “04890072-B347-41EB-AB08-87EC029276D8 is not a CoreStorage Logical Volume UUID”, even though it shows up on diskutil cs list ¯_(ツ)_/¯.

So I guess I’m left with the option of diskutil repairDisk /dev/disk1, but before I say y on Repairing the partition map might erase disk1s1, proceed?, I’m wondering if there’s anything else I can do. I know it’s likely I’ll just have to start fresh with my backups, and I suppose I don’t really need the old backups. I guess it’s good this happened now rather than when I needed to use them for a recovery.

ipad – iPadOS is corrupting files when copying from/to an external drive

I am a photographer and recently switched to a full iPad Pro 2020 setup. Since SD cards tend to fail, I would like to use my iPad Pro on the go, and backup the cards to an external SSD drive. A simple copy/paste from one drive (SD) to another (SSD) via the iPad.

However, I noticed that after importing RAW and JPEG files from the SD to the iPad internal memory, some of the files were corrupted: RAW files can’t be read by Lightroom, and JPEG files show a big grey or black area.

A couple days ago, the same thing happened in the other way round. I processed RAW files in Lightroom for iPad, and when copying the JPEG files to the external SSD, and viewing them on my PC, about 10% of them were completely trashed:

enter image description here

So I made a test, that I hope can be reproduced by someone. I’d love to have some feedback or even a solution to this issue. It’s really disappointing that the iPad can’t handle a copy/paste without corrupting the files…

First, I took a sample picture and copied it 500 times on the external SSD. To be sure everything was perfect, I used PowerShell on Windows to check the file hash of these 500 copies. As expected, they’re all the same:

enter image description here

Then, I transferred the 500 pictures to the iPad’s internal storage, using the “Copy” and “Paste” function in the app Files.

I renamed the folder in which the pictures are, copied it and pasted it back to the external SSD.

Finally, with the SSD plugged to my PC, I checked the file hash of the 500 files copied from the iPad, and indeed, some of them are corrupted, as you can see below (take Test (613).png for instance):

enter image description here

enter image description here

For the record, I was using an iPad Pro 2020 12.9″, with iPadOS 13.7, and the app Files. My external SSD is formatted in exFat. My PC is the latest Windows 10. I have then updated the iPad to iOS 14, and have yet to try this again, as perhaps it has been solved by iOS 14.

I tried with multiple SD cards, cameras, USB thumb sticks, external SSD, SD card readers, USB-C hubs, even changed the cables, that all work perfectly with my PC, and never failed me. It’s really coming from the iPad.

After some research, I saw a lot of complaints (slow transfer speed, mainly) that seem to be linked to the format of the external drive, and the fact that iPadOS seems to prefer APFS file format. But APFS isn’t an option for people like me, who are using a desktop PC.

Finally, though I can understand speed may vary depending on the format of the drive — corrupting the files is something that shouldn’t happen, no matter what format I’m using. Especially for something as basic as importing photographs from an SD card…

At this point I don’t know what to do, every time I try to copy/paste something, some files get corrupted. I would be grateful if somebody could give me some pointers, perhaps a solution, or simply confirm the issue by reproducing my test somehow.

What is Google Meet’s “Google Drive storage” feature?

https://apps.google.com/intl/en/meet/pricing/ states only G Suite Enterprise users get the “Meeting recording saved to Google Drive” feature. Yet it also states everybody, including free users, get “Google Drive storage”.

How does that make sense? Since Google Meet doesn’t support uploading files to chat, what is this Storage feature used for if it doesn’t record meetings (for most users)?

Windows 7/10 – Cannot Boot [0x000000f/e] – My OS drive has been set to D:

Changed a few wires connecting my drives to the SATA ports, rebooted and couldn’t boot, went back to old wires and old setup and still cannot boot.

I’ve tried an unimaginable amount of bootrec and BCD stuff in CMD in which I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing, I booted the PC with a partition assistant and my SSD with my OS has been set to D: and one of my storage drives is now C:

Anyway that I can swap the drive letters?

My boot order and such is all correct.

Been trying to fix this problem for 2 days please help xD.

hard drive – Webspace expanding with xampp locally installed

I was wondering what needs to happen if I want to locally expand my webspace. What I have build sofar:

I have a desktop with a 4TB harddisk, and xampp installed on it and I’ve build a Php/mysql movie-database, with music video’s on it. These music video’s are from bands with live footage of concerts i’ve been too and its fun to collect and Database it.. 2 years ago I had to expand my 2T harddisk and moved everything over to a 4TB disk, as I needed space to store the increasing amount of live movies.

And now my question…. Is it possible to have additional HD’s (for example an additional 4T disk), enabling me to have around 8T available for storing the video’s. I wonder what the right approach there is… I could of course also buy a 8T disk.. but how is this normally done at other companies with Huge amount.
