    My heart goes out to you Khao. Usually that's me. Every time I try to do something, it never works the way it is supposed to…. except for just now. THANK YOU acguevara! Everything worked just like you said, I understand now how it works, and I can do it again in the future. You made my day 🙂

    Good video, very much appreciated. However, my Seagate wont hold to the instructions and wont delete/ erase! (or anything else of the options in Disk Utility…)
    Copy-paste: MediaKit meldet: "Gerät hat für den gewünschten Vorgang nicht genügend Speicher."
    Not enough memory, does that refer to my Maxbook? Thanks.
