    Hi. I've used this only a few times. Was backing up a load of stuff last night and got up this morning to find that the disk image wasn't mounting on the desktop. Went to disk utilities and found it there. Ran repair and got the following message:

    "Verifying volume “Untitled”
    Invalid Volume Header
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Invalid node structure
    The volume Untitled needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit


    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair


    When finishing up last night I stupidly turned off the drive before ejecting it. Got the "you may lose some of your data as the drive was not finished properly" type of message. Silently cursed to myself but thought nothing else of it. I'm sure we've all done this at times. Never even lost data through it before with other applications......certainly not crashed the kit.

    Anyway does anyone have any idea if this is repairable? Any advice greatfully received.

    Thanks

    Steven
