So im using the mentioned HD as my second travelling drive. Everythings been working fine, no drops of the device, no sudden disconnects in general until one night, after some work, off to sleep, accidently dislodged the power of my lappy with hard drive still connected. When awaking, lappy was drained with th emessage, ‘One Touch’ has been removed. Since then, its been a problem. In disk utility, Seagate shows up with ‘One Touch’ volume greyed out. After about 8 hours, after messing around with terminal commands, not really knowing what im doing… it magically appeared back in my finder. This was after trying commands and nothing seemed to work. Unless of course it was working yet needed some time to show. So the next day all is working fine again, until now, has decided to not show up…..again. So im back where i started, trying some terminal commands.. nothing working yet when entering diskutil list now this shows with the difference of /dev/disk2s2 being labelled FFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFFFFFFFF instead of what it had previously shown – One Touch. Im clearly a novice novice, so any help would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime ive got a recovery scan going on, contacted seagate with them offering to send me a new drive. Im confident i can recover all my data, just in the meantime, if i can get it to mount again, then ill be able to continue the work i need to do.
