I'm setting up a new 2012 Mac mini. I have an external SSD and HD. Everything was running fine until I upgraded to OS 10.8.2. I opened disk utilities to mount one of the drives and an error occurred in disk utilities ( with Red Letters )telling me that I had two choices. One was to ignore any other was to Fix both drives.  I chose to fix. Disk utilities crashed and I went to look at it under force quit and it wasn't responding. After a reboot nothing was recognized. None of those two drives are seen by disk utilities anymore. Recovery is in question. Today I received a SSD drive for another boot up/backup external backup and disk utilities will not recognize that either. Nor will ask to initialize! What's going on here???

    Having had an experience with Apple's new Disk Utility creating an unwanted Fusion Drive, I would guess that you found another example of what Apple's new Disk Utility can do for you.

    Yes, I do think that is the problem.

    In the App Store>Purchaes, whit if any version of 10.8 shows up there?


    Does the Restore partition restore 10.8.1?
