Part 1: What's Mac volume unmountable and the causes of this trouble

Mac hard drive is divided into several different logical volumes so that users can arrange software files independently. When Mac boots up, the operating system firstly mounts the local file systems that help OS X to gather information about the corresponding volumes to start system. Therefore, the accessing of logical volume must be mounted properly if you want to boot Mac PC correctly. However, the volumes may unmount and lead the data to become inaccessible due to some unpredictable errors. The most common reasons leading to unmounted logical volumes are:

  • virus or malware infection in system
  • file system corrupted or damaged
  • operation system malfunction
