Mine finally unmounted after about ten tries. I can report about the same thing here. 5. What it does not tell mount is where the file system is to be mounted. Keep in mind that some modules are well tested and regularly used, while others might not be.
basically same result: terminal says: “Unable to find disk for …” That disk is greyed out in Disk Utility. If either special or node are not provided, the appropriate information is taken from the fstab(5) file. Or at least that is what I interpret from the man page. You can mount and unmount drives, volumes, and disks from the command line of MacOS and Mac OS X. Interesting. I'm not sure why a system administrator would be interested in this question.
Thanks Thanks man! You can easily add or delete volumes in APFS containers. However, that’s not the only issue that can occur with a disk or file system.
If you want to fully automate the process of ejecting the disk based on a partition name, this should do the trick: diskutil list | grep PartitionNameOnDisk | tr ‘ ‘ ‘\n’ | grep disk | sed ‘s/s.$//g’ | xargs diskutil eject. I want to mount whatever non-HFS file system is there. I've used Drive Genius 4 to "rebuild" the disk, but it says that the disk appears to be OK. Aug 31, 2015 7:30 PM in response to Wallyi0 I have noticed that when I attempt to mount an unmounted but connected [via USB] external hard drive using the following command in the Terminal: and type in my admin password, the external drive mounts. This trick works with external USB disks, hard drives, Firewire, Thunderbolt, DVD’s, CD’s, network drives, even USB thumb drives, literally any volume that can be mounted and accessed through the incredibly helpful diskutil command.
Apple File System (APFS), the default file system for Mac computers using macOS 10.13 or later, features strong encryption, space sharing, snapshots, fast directory sizing, and improved file system fundamentals. I did a list on the terminal command window and showed the following removable disks. FUSE mimics the kernel’s handling of file systems and allows OS X to both interact with unsupported formats and use many other storage routines, some of which are rather creative.

How do you get “permission” to mount the disk. I have a disk image file containing multiple file systems, such as HFS (Journaled) in addition to Joliet or UDF.
To get started, download and install FUSE for OS X. When and where on Planet Mars are the Sun's rays the most blueshifted? Thanx! Retried installing OS X out of the recovery disk (partition) and, as I thought, it doesn't see the external hard drive disk3s2. i am using macOS 10.13.6 on an iMac 27″ late 2009.
For instance, if you have several cloud-based storage accounts, you can write a small module that will connect all of these services with FUSE.
How can I mount this disk image as writable, or force a file into it? Please note that while this article specifically defines the steps necessary to connecting to an ECN drive, it can be used to connect to other SMB and CIFS servers from a Mac as well.
I’d like to be able to invoke this command without needing to type in an admin password.
You can then mount them as a single volume on the system, much like you’d plugged in a USB drive. Are there any apps you know of that would fix this? 1.

This feature is called 'Live Verification.' oddly, it was just mounted on a different computer.
Anyway, worked perfectly. DU says to repair disk and then try mounting again.
the "mount force /dev/(disc number) command in Terminal:
In response to Wallyi0. i shut that computer down, to move disk to a different computer; and suddenly it stopped mounting.

The missing argument is a directory to mount the file system on top of (the directory will disappear and be replaced by the file system on the device. Then again the command line was more friendly then 80 column punched cards and 8-bit punched paper tape, but no where near the friendliness of a Graphical User Interface (the command line is not friendly).
