Disk Utility Partition problems
on Aug 20, 2009 at 9:03:13 pm

Hello everyone,

I have a G-speed 7.5 TB drive. I'm trying to repartition the drive from 3 partitions to 5 partitions. I tried Disk Utility, but I keep getting a message saying "file system formatter failed." So now my drive is erased and I can't get it to partition at all, even just one partition.

Do I need to use some other software other than Disk Utility?

I'm running a Mac Pro with 10.5.5.

Thanks for the help.

If a drive failes to partition then that is a sign that the drive has a physical problem.

I would contact the manufacturer about warranty information because the drive is most likely bad.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!
