    I'm not clear which disk you are trying to mount. The bittorrent one?

    It looks like it is mounted and you just need to click the bottom BitTorrent area in the Finder.

    Open Terminal app and enter "diskutil list" (without the quotes) and what do you get?

    Usually s2 is the main OS partition.

    That looks like an extra 83GB partition that got on there somehow? Did you have multiple partitions on there before you installed Mountain Lion?

    If you click on the drive (not the partition) and then the partition tab in Disk Util does the 83GB show there? Can you select the 83GB there and click the minus to remove it.

    I'm assuming this is not your boot drive and a spare and you have backed up, so if this trashes the data on the disk you won't be mad at me. :)

    That looks like an un-partitioned free space.

    Looks like at some point u created "Macintosh HDD" then u moved it, opening that free space on top.

    DO YOU HAVE DATA on that partition? if not just reformat it to make it available.
