access to an external drive connected via USB
 
Hi

i had a Lacie drive but as it did not work anymore i have decided to directely conect the drive to my mac via USB

the drive is NOT recomised through the finder
BUT
disk utility see it (the disk is splitted into 7 drives - 1 big disk1s2, 6 small disk1s6, disk1s7, disk1s8 , disk1s9 and disk1s10
AND i can see it with Terminal
/dev/disk1
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: FDisk_partition_scheme *2.0 TB disk1
1: Linux 2.0 TB disk1s2
2: Linux_Swap 263.1 MB disk1s5
3: Linux 8.2 MB disk1s6
4: Linux 8.2 MB disk1s7
5: Linux 871.8 MB disk1s8
6: Linux 896.5 MB disk1s9

You'll need something that can read Linux formatted partitions - likely ext2/3/4

You can get Paragon ExtFS or you could try installing a version of Linux in VirtualBox as a VM and using that to access the drive
