How do I access my files visually from the Finder?
The drive is mounted, it is not empty, it worked on a Windows PC. And, as stated, I can access all of the files using the terminal.
A couple of notes:
- The drive refuses to eject. Even if I force eject it from the terminal, the light on the external stays on.
- The drive was verified through disk util to be okay, but then after playing with it for a while trying to fix this, disk util said to reformat the drive. It’s still working fine on other computers regardless.
- It's formatted in exFAT. This drive has worked fine before.
- I have permissions to read and write.
EDIT: I just left the Finder window for the drive open for ~20 minutes, and the files magically appeared. The last thing I did with the drive was unmount/remount using the Terminal. I checked right after I did that, and still no files. Yet, 20 minutes later, they're there.
Would anybody be able to provide an explanation in case this happens again? I feel as if this will happen again.
