Mac has become a very popular computer system nowadays. People generally store valuable data as well as the multimedia files in the Mac hard drive. The hard drive is often partitioned in different volumes to store different types of data. But as you know multimedia files require larger disk space there are chances that the user will do the repartitioning of the hard drive. It will increase the capacity of the of some volume while decreasing the others. Mac OS X has the disk utility installed in the system by which they can do the partition of the hard drive in an easy way. But some people have noticed that they are getting Partition failed error while they attempt to repartition the hard drive. This particular error shows a message “Couldn’t modify partition map because file system verification failed.”
How to Fix Partition Failed Error Manually
- You need to restart the Mac system in the single user mode by pressing Command +S button during boot.
- In the command prompt type : /sbin/fsck -fy
- After the completion of FSCK, type EXIT or reboot to restart the system.
- Now start the mac usually and then use the disk Utility to perform repartitioning
You can fix the error easily by yourself but if the partitioned failed error was shown in the middle of the partition process then the hard disk will get corrupted and the data will be inaccessible to the user. You need to format the drive to fix hard drive corruption. In the process all the data will be lost and you have to recover the data by using a back up or a recovery tool. Mac OS X has an inbuilt back up utility Time Machine but sometimes it does not work.
Then you can use Mac data recovery software to restore data in the re partitioned hard drive after fixing the Partition failed error. It will scan the Mac hard drive for deleted data and then show you scan results in the preview window so that you can choose the desired files. You can also sort the scan result according to size or the modified date. The software can recover data of various file format. You should download and install the software in other storage media so that the hard disk is not overwritten.
Use of Mac Data Recovery Software for recovering Lost Data
Step 1 : Mac data recovery software should be downloaded and installed properly.
Step 2 : Choose the Mac hard drive volumes for scanning.
Step 3 : Select the types of file you have lost and want to recover.
Step 4 : Start the scanning process .
Step 5 : When the scanning is complete provide the location where the files will be saved.
