Convert FAT Partition into HFS+
Posted on 2010-04-09
I have successfully recovered a clients data from a malfunctioning LaCie Big Disk. A big thanks to all who helped me with this problem. I recovered the data onto a new 1.5tb Seagate External Hard Drive. The problem is that I used my PC to recover the data and the drive is a NTFS partition. My client is able to Read the files just fine, but is unable to Write to the drive.
I now need to transfer the data onto another external drive (which I have). Then partition the Seagate to HFS+ and bring the data back across. I tried this within the Mac OS and I received an error in the middle of the transfer. It said something about the drive had a problem transferring a file. Transfer haulted. I also tried to use Carbon Copy Cloner, but it will not work with NTFS partitions. What is the best procedure to get the data into a HFS+ partition so that my client can read/write onto the drive?
Thank you in advance.
