    I tried to install a hard drive on a stardom external raid drive. it created a partition that required me to initialize the disk. i of course did not initialize the disk as the hard drive is loaded with data that cannot be lost. since i created the partition, the hard drive is no longer recognize on my mac pro. how do i recover the volume label?

    I'm a bit confused. You say you declined when Disk Utility advised you it needed to initialize the disk to create a partition yet then you go on to say you created a partition in the next sentence. :confused:

    If you've somehow managed to mess up the partitions on the drive would disconnect it immediately to keep from overwriting data and use FileSalvage. :(

    the hard drive was running smoothly in osx. but when i installed it to the raid drive, a partition was created (replaced the original volume label) the new partition cannot be recognized in osx. that's why disc utility asked me to initialize the disc.
