I have a harddrive
Seagate Backup Plus Drive that I use on Mac. Its a 5TB drive that used to work fine on my Mac Air.
But, now I am having a lot of trouble reading it on my Mac-Air.
From previous issues with our drives, I chanced on the idea that Power availability is probably an issue. I tried to use the drive from my Ubuntu Desktop which seems to power up more.
It worked, but I was not able to mount it in Write mode.
I tried to find something easy and quick. The following commands on my trusted terminal seem to work for me!
# Unmount first sudo umount /dev/sdc2 # Mount next in Write mode sudo mount -o force,rw /dev/sdc2 /media/seagate/ # Read files cd /media/seagate/ ls
