I have two seagate expansion drives, the first one is 3.5'' 1.5TB and the second one is 2.5'' 2TB. The latter is partitioned and I installed Ubuntu 16.04 in it.
The day before I booted up with the latter expansion disk and plugged in the first expansion disk to move documents in it. It's rather old disk, I bought it about 7 years ago, it acts up sometimes, and makes click-cluck noise. I needed to plug in receiver of wireless mouse so I suspended the comp and changed the usb ports.
3.5''Expansion--->USB PORT1, 2.5''Expansion--->USB PORT2
3.5''Expansion--->USB PORT2, 2.5''Expansion--->USB PORT1
And I let it resume, I should have lost my mind, as you know it resumed but froze immediately, because it could not read and write to
2.5''Expansion--->USB PORT2. I did a hard boot, it loaded the session but did not detected the old
3.5''Expansion , I shut down the comp because it was late at night.
Yesterday I started the comp and tried to open
3.5''Expansion but it wouldn't detect it. I tried to unplug and plug the power cable of
3.5''Expansion, none didn't work. I also tried it on Windows, it only detected it as a usb device, but can not view the content. I also checked it on drivers list in
computer management, it's not listed.
On Ubuntu it's listed in
/dev/sdc. I tried to mount it like
sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt
but it hangs
Now I fear that it blew up when I interchanged usb ports.
How can I know about what happened to my
EDIT: output of
EDIT2: In Windows right-click Computer->Manage-> in the left panel under Storage -> Disk Management, clicking it and on the right panel my USB HDD appears but it is shrinked around 3GB. When I right click it, menu items grayed out.
When I restarted it asks me
gpt or mbr I tried each one respectively, but both failed to start the drive.
