I was watching a video from the drive and moving some files from one folder to another when vlc crashed and my desktop stopped responding (to mouse clicks etc) I turned the laptop off using the power button and when rebooted the drive doesn't show up. Weird, and annoying as I just bought the drive recently. Help anyone?

sudo lsblk -o name,mountpoint,label,size,fstype;sudo parted -l

Output:

NAME   MOUNTPOINT LABEL   SIZE FSTYPE
sda                     465.8G 
├─sda1 /boot/efi          512M vfat

and

lsblk

Output:

  • Will you edit your question and put the output of sudo lsblk -o name,mountpoint,label,size,fstype;sudo parted -l in it? Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 2:00
  • Done, see above, thanks. Looks like not showing up right.

  • When you disconnect the drive and connect it again, any changes ? Do you see anything in dmesg then ?

  • Try a different port. While it's unlikely that you are using a cable, try a different cable if you are. Also, to eliminate the possibility of it being an issue with your installation, see if it's recognized when you boot to a live session and plug it in. Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 8:02

So...

sudo lsblk -o name,mountpoint,label,size,fstype;sudo parted -l

Output -

NAME   MOUNTPOINT                  LABEL   SIZE FSTYPE
sda                                      465.8G

└─sda3 [SWAP]                              3.9G swap

It's working! In boot up I went to the recovery mode, I didn't really know what I was doing but updated grub and clean disk and when I rebooted it worked! Weird... anyway, thanks everyone. If anyone can offer any explanation of this, be interested to hear it.
