I have a HDD (Toshiba DT01ACA200) that was being used as a server in my netgear centria wndr4700 router.
I had the hdd mapped as a network drive in Windows 10. After a power surge, the drive was showing, but no files were showing. If I right-clicked the the network drive and selected properties, it showed the actual used space.
I tried booting ubuntu with a flash drive and couldn't mount the HDD. It showed in ubuntu, but it just doesn't mount. I don't remember which commands I used, but I could still check the used space and it matched what showed in windows and the actual used space.
In windows I even tried to use disk management (after plugging in my computer). The HDD shows there (with all free space), but no letter can be assigned.
Can anyone help? There are a lot of photos that I forgot to backup and would like to retrieve from this disk. Since the tests, I unplugged the hd and it's sitting here in my desk.
