I have an external drive used by Windows and Linux. It suddenly stopped working, suggesting that I should format it before use. I lost all of the data, name of the drive, and it doesn't even display the size.
Fortunately, Ubuntu sees everything. I looked for a Windows fix, but
chkdsk can't access the drive.
I'm a new Linux user, is there an Ubuntu alternative? If so, how do I execute it?
In case I fail, how can I quickly create a live USB? My Ubuntu is installed on VirtualBox, and it doesn't accept any USB 3.0 ports. So in case I can't fix it, I'll need to back up my data with a live USB.
