OSX external backup disk cannot be mounted.

Tried Disk Utility, it cannot fix the disk.

I then let default fsck_hfs run to fix it by default, based on,

'top' shows that 'fsck_hfs' was running when "Horizon green backup disk" was connected to "byte".

Byte-4:~ hqin$ ls /dev/disk*
/dev/disk0 /dev/disk0s2 /dev/disk1 /dev/disk1s2
/dev/disk0s1 /dev/disk0s3 /dev/disk1s1
Byte-4:~ hqin$ ps -ef | grep fsck

In the evening, the disk was finally fixed and mounted.
