diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ dummy /dev/disk0 and
diskutil apfs create /dev/disk0s2 DiskSpace to create an APFS volume called DiskSpace within disk 0. However, I run into this error:
error: -69624: Unable to add a new APFS Volume to an APFS Container. The end result in
diskutil list is an APFS container with no APFS volumes. When I try to remake the volume, it usually crashes at the part where it creates a new volume. The APFS container is properly made, but the APFS volume never appears. Is there a reason why?
