External hard drive issues after upgrading to Mountain Lion
I've been having difficulties with my external hard drive since upgrading to Mountain Lion yesterday. The drive was working perfectly fine under Lion before I started the upgrade process.
The issue I'm having is that Mountain Lion won't fully recognize the disk. It's a 2TB hard drive, partitionned in two; one part used for file storage, the other one being used by Time Machine. Now when I connect the drive, it only recognize either of the two partitions, not both. It also doesn't let me use the partition used by Time Machine as it should anymore, giving me the error that it cannot connect to the drive. When it recognizes the other partition, I can only browse to the root folders, if I try to go inside them and retrieve data, it finds nothing. Though both partitions show the correct amount of memory remaining and used. Also, they don't show up in Disk Utility.
I'm thinking it might just be an issue with the firmware used for my hard drive enclosure, would that make any sense?
