So I have a bad drive. I used disk drill to create a DMG of it. It took 10 days. On completion I immediately opened the DMG, ALL files present and accessible from mounted image! YAY! Closed down DD, shut down computer. Slept well. Came back, DMG mounted with error, all files (except a few folders) had disappeared from DMG. How is this possible? Scratch that, I don’t care why it happened unless it helps me get the DMG to mount properly with the original filesystem! What can I do?November 4, 2013 at 4:52 pm #5141
Where did you save the DMG file?November 5, 2013 at 5:23 am #5142
Desktop, internal hard drive… would it help if it was elsewhere?November 5, 2013 at 5:45 am #5143
The ‘bad drive’ was from another computer, so on an ‘external’ drive.
So, DMG was made of an external drive and then saved onto internal drive.November 5, 2013 at 3:02 pm #5144
Let me speak to my team about this, I’ll update you soon.November 7, 2013 at 8:03 pm #5145
OK, just got some updates. Seems that the working file can only become corrupted due to hardware issues. Probably some part of the file resides on corrupted sectors.
