I have Seagate Barracuda 2tb hard disk which has been working happily in a NAS for a year or so. Unfortunately the disk now appears to be broken as the NAS doesn't recognise it.
I've tried plugging it into my laptop and desktop and both know its there in Disk Management but it appears as 'not initalized'. I believe initializing it will reduce my chances of recovering the data from it so I've not gone down that path yet. I've tried various tools such as MiniTool Partition Wizard, Partition Find & Mount and Easeus Partition Manager but none of them recognise the disk as being present so don't give me any recovery options.
I've also tried booting into Ubuntu just to see if that could see it, but alas no.
Can anyone suggest any alternative approaches I could take to getting it in any sort of working state? I'm a bit pessimistic given how it's gone so far, but maybe all is not lost.
