Verification of external hard drive stops on $Bitmap. Ideas?
Its a WD Passport 320 GB drive, 2.5” bus powered, I’m trying to verify and repair it using Disk Utility in OSX Leopard 10.5.8. The drive is just acting weird so I figure some maintenance should help it. The drive is NTFS format and the mac has NTFS for mac installed for NTFS read/writability.
The verification and repair stops on “Verifying $Bitmap”
