I am running Yosemite. I received a message telling me that I had a hard disk going bad. I tried disk repair. No joy. The system said that it could not repair the volume and that I should back up my files and reformat the volume . So I created a disk image of the disk onto another disk. I reformatted the first drive and attempted to restore the image. It won't mount. It is over 800GB. After 4 - 5 hours, it finally stops and says it could not be scanned. Is it because of it's size? I have a 2011 iMac 27" Intel i5. 8GB RAM. Am I doing something wrong? It there any way to save my data? I would expect something like this from Windows, but my iMac has been so solid.
