Hi, I made a foolish mistake, firstly by placing very important files only on one drive temporarily whilst doing some maintenance, and secondly by pulling that drive out of my computer without ejecting it in a momentary lapse of concentration. Now it won't mount, and I need those files! Quirks: When I go into disk utility, the program doesn't seem to find any disks until I pull out the disk in question, and then all of a sudden it finds all my disks incluing the one I just pulled out. I then plugged the drive back in again and ran Verify - which just ran and ran and never stopped. I tried to press 'mount', but it said 'this drive cannot mount, try first aid'. Back to square one. What do I do!? Should I do disk repair? Will this wipe my drive? Any suggestions? info: the drive is a 160gb usb WD passport phantom powered drive, with only about 10gb of stuff on it. I'm running a new MacBook, 2Ghz, 2Gb.
