I was attempting to backup my system with Time Machine and for whatever reason a passerby disrupted the hard drive wire and the backup failed due to an 'improper ejection'. Now, after attempting to plug the thing back in my hard drive no longer shows up on my desktop (as is the usual) and it isn't listed in
diskutil list on the terminal. However, when I open up Disk Utility it is listed, but it won't eject. Disk Utility is telling me something is using it, not sure what though. This is what I've tried to do so far....
Eject with Disk Utility Failed
Turn off computer, unplug and turn back on Failed
From terminal: killall Finder Failed
From terminal: killall Dock Failed (though, I was sure this wouldn't do anything in the first place)
Control-option (click)Finder icon in dock (chose
ls -l \VolumesFailed (Drive not present)
I'm lost now. If I've lost the files that were on it...fine. It sucks, but whatever. I'm just trying to figure out why I can't unmount it.
