So, I have a Seagate hard drive I was using for external storage. Out of the middle of nowhere, it suddenly doesn't want to be read. After some tests, I can get it to be seen in an HDD USB dock. However, the moment I try to do something with it, the computer has a problem. I tried SeaTools for Windows, Seagate File Recovery Suite, & Active Partition Recovery. Either the software sees it and tries to do something or the moment it does something to the drive, the drive disappears or the software crashes. I'm working on finding some partition software for Ubuntu. However, trying to use the command line just to get software to install in Ubuntu drove me nuts.
