    Carbon Copy Cloner Partition Missing
    I had partition made up few yrs ago, its a small GB for some reason that I dont remember and I recall I saw it on Task List while back and its gone because I removed it. That was in LeCie and do you think partition is still there even I format the drive ?? If I format the drive on LeCie, will it format all or will it format and leave partition alone ?? Is it possible to get it back and see whats inside the partition?? I open Disk Utility

    See VM and 2 not mount 3GB ( might be. partition file there ) Any way possible to peek into this file ?
    If not then how do I reformat the partition ones and make it whole hard drive again

    OK, your drive is formatted for APFS, so the way things are kept are different than you may be used to. The 3.93 in Other Volumes is where the recovery partition and another partition needed by Mojave are kept, not your CCC partition. If you deleted the CCC partition on the internal drive, it's gone for good, particularly since it's been converted to APFS.

    I see, suppose I had 10gb partition on hard drive, speaking of APFS, did I lose 10gb space or gained back all gb

    Well, if you had partitions, when the drive was converted those partitions would have been converted as well. But you said you had deleted the partition, so if the partition didn't exist when the APFS conversion took place, it would not be there afterwards, regardless of size. I'm not sure what you meant by

    APFS should not have cost you any space, other than the recovery partition. APFS is just a scheme for storage and read/write to optimize for SSD operations. So the 3.93GB is the recovery partition and another small partition for the operating system that contains, I think, part of the boot loading process. In any event, from what I can see, it all looks "normal" at this point. You can read some of the details here: https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/80151
