I have installed Kali Linux on a hard disk. I removed it and connected via USB to my MacOS (also tried WindowsOS). I want to take backup of files in Kali Linux. But the hard disk is not detected. How to solve this?

After comments, diskutil list results

  • Hard to tell what you're actually trying to achieve… Are you trying to boot from it, or just make a copy of the USB from your currently-running OS? – Tetsujin May 22 at 16:57

    Well, that's not the USB, that's your boot drive… if disk1 is synthesized, then you only have one physical device, disk0. Best guess right now is your kali drive is… broken, but I really can't tell from so little info. – Tetsujin May 22 at 17:19

    I inlined your picture. Your labelling is incorrect, disk1(synthesized) is a virtual drive, that your Mac is currently booted from. disk0 is the physical source of that, which I can see from the FFFFF partition that you've already messed with it & managed to break, quite badly. Your USB is nowhere to be seen. I'm back to "it's broken". Your physical boot drive is also broken [mis-formatted], but for different, unrelated reasons. – Tetsujin May 22 at 17:33

    Well, I was sure I inlined your picture… done again... – Tetsujin May 22 at 18:04

    @sofs1 sounds like the enclosure is bad. – At0mic May 23 at 5:31
