Any advice?

Time Machine, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Bootup holding CMD+r, or the Option/alt key to boot from the Restore partition & use Disk Utility from there to Repair the Disk, then Repair Permissions.


    Then Repair the external drive... any errors? Any change?

    Hi, I tried your advice and it tells me the external drive is ok, and the ERASE section is grey, probably because I encrypted the disk!?!


    Still the same issue: every time I enter my password to access the external hard drive, it restarts the macbook and I get a screen that says: the computer restarted because of a problem... so frustrating!


    Any other ideas?

    Whew, see if the same thing happens in Safe Mode...


    Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup).
