I've been using a 2tb USB backup drive for my macos and it's been working fine. it's been some time since I used it, but now suddenly macos (mojave) is not recognizing it.

  1. I've tried running diskutil activity to monitor to see if there's anything going on. nothing.
  2. I've rebooted into windows and it shows up fine
  3. I've tried mounting it on my macbook air, and it's fine
  4. I've tried other usb disks and they work just fine
  5. rebooted many times

Any ideas what could be going on? Any remedy? Clearly the drive works (number 2 & 3). So it's odd it's not being detected
