I am able to see my HDD and its partitions in Disk Utility but I am not able to see in in Finder or in ls /Volumes/. I have some data that's important and I intend to back it up. Is there any other way to access the HDD. Please help

is it mounted? is it a journaled partition or something else?

its not mounted. i tried to mount but it says mount failed and asking me to run repair. When I run repair, it says repair failed. It was in exfat i guess

Do you have a linux machine handy? You can always dd the drive to another hard drive as a backup copy before you go messing with it if you are extra paranoid about the data too.


yes i have ubuntu and rhel. what is the command to do so...
