A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: KARNEOL on Dec 19, '09 08:52:27PM

I have an external 1TB dual firewire 400 (Seagate) HD that I use as back up, using TimeMachime for my MacBookPro. All of the sudden, my HD is not mounting and DiskUtilities are giving me 'Invalid sibling link' error. I am ready to panic because this HD has ALL of my documents, audio and photos that I use for my students at High School that I am teaching! PLEASE HELP!!!
You help is greatly appreciated, Sebastian.

If I have step by step instructions, I believe I could do it.

I am getting:
Forte:~ Sebastian$ fsck_hfs -r /dev/disk2
** /dev/rdisk2 (NO WRITE)

Any ideas what (NO WRITE) means?
