Ubuntu – External HDD detected, but not recognised. Cannot mount, cannot format, cannot do partition

hard drive

I am new to ubuntu and this community. I have a seagate expansion external HD (1 TB) which needs rescue. Firstly it crashed sometime back. By then I could use some data recovery software to recover my data. But I was impatient for a data recovery process of 10 days and thus I unplugged the drive. Thereafter windows stop recognizing the drive. Quite recently I was researching online to find the drive might be recognized by ubuntu and thankfully it did. But the problem is that neither I can create a disk image, nor format it, nor do partitions. it doesn't mount. I have done extensive research to find out the exact cause of the error. Ran the dmesg command and have collected some information. The info relevant is as below:

This is quite lengthy and I truly appreciate if someone can read through the above to let me know the issue with the disk.

I have quite memorable as well as sensitive information, for me to attempt recovery from a professional firm and would like to do do it myself.

Any help is truly appreciated.

Thank you

  • Have you tried the ntfsfix command? Sometimes the disk is not properly exited on windows and you need to fix it before reading the disk
