I know this is a silly question. I got a 2.5" hard disk drive that I use for my laptop. It has problems, so I plugged it out and attached it into a hard disk case and connected the hard disk to my computer using USB.
When I hit the super key and write "disks", the "Disks" utility shows me the hard disk. It says:
JMicron USB to ATA/ATAPI Bridge
However, when I click onto it to show the mount point and etc, I can't see anything.
It doesn't tell me about the size and contents, but it says the device is
/dev/sdc. In my first try, the Disks utility told me that the size is 2.2TB - which is weird because it writes 500GB on the hard disk.
After this, I Google'd and tried to find a way to mount this.
I executed this command:
sudo fdisk -l
I couldn't see the hard disk there, but since the Disks utility told me it's
/dev/sdc, I tried mounting it like this:
sudo mkdir /media/e_test sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc /media/e_test
Those didn't work, so I tried:
sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc /media/e_test
Didn't work either. And lastly,
sudo mount -t vfat -o /dev/sdc /media/e_test
And it didn't work either.
How can I recover the files in this hard disk?
Thank you very much.
