Normally I am developing my apps under C:, which is a SSD. This time, because I expected the node_modules folder to be huge, I decided to use my secondary hard drive (D:, 2TB). After cloning the repo, I used Ubuntu (Windows Subsystem for Linux) to run npm install
I took a while, and a coffee later, my hard drive completely disappeared. It's not showing up in the disk manager, the device manager and not even in the BIOS. I can't find words for what just happened, what can possibly go wrong when installing my dependencies that a whole hard drive is corrupted?
I can imagine that it has something to do with the fact that I am using WSL and how it handles paths, but that's just a wild guess. I would be more than thankful if someone could help me out of this mess, as I don't have a backup of everything important on that disk.
What can I do to somehow restore my disk?
- My machine is an Asus Gaming Laptop (Asus GL503VM)
- Running Windows 10 Home (Version 1903, OS build 18362.356)
