How to fix “Partition failed couldn’t unmount disk” error in Mac
Normally formatting is done by the user to install new OS or to partition the disc drive. Sometime the system prompts the error message “partition failed couldn’t unmount disk”. This led to an embarrassment when user is going for partitioning, repairing, formatting or repairing the directory in the disk utility. The error also prompts like ‘Disc erase failed couldn’t unmount disc in Mac’, ‘Disk Erase failed with the error: Couldn’t unmount disk in Mac.’ These errors also indicate the users that their disk drive is malfunctioning and they need a new one. All these error messages have the same problem that faced by the users.
The common symptom of this error is prompting of message “couldn’t unmount disk.” Sometimes at a regular interval of time it sounds like click, tap or whirr sounds coming from the drive.
