I've got a (friends Toshiba) 1TB SSD external hard drive with USB3 interface. Three separate systems (Win 7, 10 and a Linux variant) do 'see' the drive but the partition information is clearly corrupt in some way. Windows Disk Management reports the drive contents are "unallocated". Is it my best option to establish a new partition and then run try to run Recouva?
I considered breaking open that snazzy Toshiba enclosure, and installing the drive in a desktop system, but I seems unnecessary at this point.
I spent the $20 based on numerous positive reviews. However, in my situation that may have been premature? Any knowledgeable advice would be appreciated.
