I am using a 1.5 TB external HDD (via USB). The HDD is partitioned into 2 sections. Currently, one section appears fine and mounts in Finder (luckily, this is the partition that I backup my computer with - via Carbon). The other partition, the one where I store media content, will no longer mount.



I restarted my computer today, and when it booted, Finder alerted me that the external disk (we'll call it MEDIA from here on out) could not be repaired.

I went into Disk Utility, saw the HDD as well as both paritions (backup and MEDIA).

I verified MEDIA (I believe there was a message at the end of this, although I do not remember what it said).

I then began to repair MEDIA.


Through a series of miscommunications, I closed Disk Utility during this process.


MEDIA now is not showing in Finder and refuses to be repaired by Disk Utility (the error says: Disk Utility can't repair this disk...back up as many of your files as possible, reformat the disk, and restore your backed-up files).


Where can I go from here?


Thank you all in advance!
