okay, im sorry if im posting this in the wrong part of the forums but I don't know which category to put it in.
what happened was, I have a 1TB external HD for Time Machine. I realized I still had about 300-400GB of extra space, so I decided to partition out 200GB in Disk Utility for other backup uses. Since it showed the time remaining to be almost an hour long, I didn't want to bother Disk Utility doing its thing, so i left it alone. however I forgot to turn timed-sleep/hibernation off, so when I came back to check on it, it had already gone to sleep and thus ejecting the external HD while it was still being partitioned. a message popped up to say it failed cause the HD was ejected.
Now i'm left with 99GB of free space. and the HD has not been partitioned.
I have lost over 200 GB free space to what the external HD thinks is used space.
is there a way to recover these disappearing GB's?
again, sorry if its in the wrong part of the forums.
any help is highly appreciated. thanks!
