Thanks for your reply.
I followed your directions and this is what I got:
- Code: Select all
david@david-Lenovo-B560 ~ $ fsck.hfsplus /media/FREE\ SPACE
** /media/FREE SPACE (NO WRITE)
Device is not a block device
I can't seem to find a description of "block device" that would give me a sufficient understanding of what was going wrong. I understand (NO WRITE) just fine, and that would give me reason to believe that no changes could be made to the drive because "read only" privileges are available. Seems weird that this could happen since everything was working fine before, but then again I'm not too knowledgeable of Linux underpinnings yet.
I had write privilege problems when using this drive for the first time with Linux, and had hfsprogs installed to overcome this. A little reading led me to fix the problem by turning off Journaling from within Disk Utility and changing permissions on Mac OS X. All was well after that. Now...not so much.
