TC Mac SparseBundle Mount

Postby odedshankar » 02.06.18, 01:57

HI Guys,

I just created a good image from a drive with few bad sectors from an Mac Time Capsule.
I can see a large SparseBundle under the Data Partition which is obviously the backup, but it doesn't mount on a Mac saying it can't find a valid file system.
Is there a way to mount a Mac sparseBundle in PC3K DE?

Thanks

Mount the task as a drive to the system, then open it with Recovery Explorer (http://r-explorer.com).

Thanks Mate, appreciate your input although i would not need it at this stage after all as i managed to repair the SparseBundle through Terminal.

Sure mate, you should open terminal and use the su or sudo command.
then:
hdiutil attach -nomount -readwrite nameXX.sparsebundle
Afterwards I ran the fsch_hfs command to check the main volume:
fsck_hfs -drf /dev/diskXsX
It may run for few hours, in my case it did a great job repairing the SparseBundle but not always working if the corruption is too bad.
