    Hi all!

    I am new to the mac - running disktool -l shows me some information I don't quite undestand:

    1. ***Disk Appeared ('disk1s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
    2. ***Disk Appeared ('disk1s2',Mountpoint = '/Users/Jacob', fsType = 'hfs', volName = 'Jacob')
    3. ***Disk Appeared ('disk1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
    4. ***Disk Appeared ('disk0',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
    5. ***Disk Appeared ('disk0s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
    6. ***Disk Appeared ('disk0s2',Mountpoint = '/', fsType = 'hfs', volName = 'Jacob's HD')

    Line 4 i guess is the harddrive, line 5 I don't get? Is that partition one of disk 1? And what does that contain? Line 6 i guess is the main volume of the harddrive and contains all of my data.

    Now for disk 1 that one might think is the CD-ROM drive? But if that is correct then why is it mounted in /users/Jacob (my home folder) when it should be in /Volumes?

    Regards,

    Jacob

      You are probably running your user account with filevault.

      My system with me running with filevault, and a separate volume for NetBSD's pkgsrc:

      jonestown.local:~                                                               {0.51 0.82 0.58} 81> disktool -l
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk4',Mountpoint = '/Volumes/Ext2 Filesystem 1.4d3', fsType = 'hfs', volName = 'Ext2 Filesystem 1.4d3')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk3',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk3s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk3s2',Mountpoint = '/Volumes/pkgsrc', fsType = 'hfs', volName = 'pkgsrc')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk1s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk1s2',Mountpoint = '/Users/cyber', fsType = 'hfs', volName = 'cyber')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk0',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk0s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk0s3',Mountpoint = '/', fsType = 'hfs', volName = 'Macintosh HD')
