   I recently upgraded to Mountain Lion and upon performing a clean install, I decided it was a good idea to start fresh with my external HDD which I use for Time Machine. After backing up my files from the external HDD, I used Disk Utility to perform an erase. However this drive, whcih was "encrypted", had some kind of an error while erasing and now I cannot seem to unlock the drive.


When I connect the drive it does not show up in Finder. When I open Disk Utility, the drive shows up, but will not allow me to make any changes. All of the tabs are gone except for first aid and partition, and it will not allow me to create a partition on the drive. It says "The partition contains a locked disk and can not be resized until it is unlocked".



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
