You mentioned that you receive two error messages "File system exit code is 8" and "File system verify or repair failed.:(-69845)" These two error messages indicate that your drive or volume's file system is likely corrupted so First Aid is failed to repair the drive.
File system exit code is 8 and File system verify or repair failed.:(69845) may be caused by a corrupted file system on the drive. It can happen on the internal or external hard drive, USB flash drive, or SD card on a Mac running any version of macOS.
If they appear on your external hard drive, you can take the following three simple methods to fix these two problems:

- Use another USB cable
- Unplug the drive and replug it into a different port
If the above ways are not working, you can use the below ways and rerun First Aid to check if the error has been fixed.
- Restart your Mac
