I use the smartctl tool:
# smartctl /dev/sda -i | grep Serial
Serial Number: S1D3LYBG290266
I prefer it over lsblk simply because the former is more human read-able but if you need it in a bash script this is worthless;
Before sending the drives I suggest you fire up a VM on either your Mac or Windows machine, install CentOS 7 in the VM and then attach the USB drives to the VM.
Let you work out what filesystems you can install on CentOS (and work out what you need to do to install/configure them before you start messing with a remote machine)

5) Attach the HDD through a USB external drive adapter and
6) copy the ...
I Wrote a USB device driver for STM32h7 and register the device as GPIO by using Struct gpio_chip structure. my questions are here:
I would assume your wrote a kernel land driver (.ko) ... do you ?
When I export the GPIO for example gpio496 into kernel space with below command:
echo 496 > /sys/class/gpio
and then I want to set direction with
Looks like PrivateMounts now defaults to yes.
This fixed it for me:
sudo systemctl edit systemd-udevd
Add the following to the service:
Then restart udevd:
sudo systemctl restart systemd-udevd

I assume that you didn't wipe the disk. I also assume that you stopped using your PC immediately to avoid overwriting your files.
Teskdisk will not work for you. But scalpel will. I will explain two ways to use it, depending your resources and your tools.
First, I assume that you have another laptop/desktop with a linux OS and a SATA to USB converter. If ...
