Recently when I was installing Ubuntu on my Laptop, I had an external 500 GB SeaGate hard-drive attached to the Laptop. During the installation setup Ubuntu asked where I would like to have my Operating system installed.
2 options were listed:
- My 500 GB laptop hard drive.
- My 500 GB Seagate external hard-drive.
By mistake I clicked on option 2 and proceeded to install. After 10 seconds I realised my mistake and hurriedly unplugged the Seagate device.
Now when I plug in this hard-disk into any computer, that computer is unable to detect it. No icon appears on the desktop in Ubuntu and I dont know how to access all the data stored on the hard-disk.
However when I go to the boot manager of my BIOS, (which is used to decide which device to boot from) , I can see that device being detected as "Seagate Freeagent GO"
Please let me know how I should proceed and retrieve all the data from this device.
I currently have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my laptop
