I have a firewire enclosure with a 500GB hard drive in it. There are 3 partitions on the hard drive with the following names:
- Snow Leopard
However when I run
ls /Volumes it gives me this:
HFS HFS 1 Momentus XT NTFS Snow Leopard
Why does this
HFS 1 partition appear? Running
distil list does not show any sign of a
HFS 1 partition:
/dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Momentus XT 499.2 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *320.1 GB disk1 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS Snow Leopard 80.0 GB disk1s2 3: Apple_HFS HFS 150.0 GB disk1s3 4: Microsoft Basic Data NTFS 89.6 GB disk1s4
I've noticed this behaviour since I set Transmission to download all torrents to
/Volumes/HFS/Torrents. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.
I have simply deleted the
HFS 1 folder with
rm -rf as it was empty, but I'm still wondering where it came from.
