I had got a problem recently with my main computer and I can't turn it on for the moment.
In order to be able to get back some data, that are really important to me, i bought an adaptator to use my HDD as an external drive, connected in USB to my laptop
(By the way, if that does matter : my HDD is a Seagate 2To 7200/min, that i use as a second disk on my main computer, for data storage mainly, while the OS is on a SSD.)
The thing is that even if windows does recognize the hard drive (see pic below), it doesn't appear as a hard drive.
I can see it in the disk management though : disk 1 on the pic, and windows tells me that it is dynamic.
I can see it through diskpart aswell, and here it says that the disk is invalid and that there is no volume on it
I already tried to see if I could access to the HDD with a linux live cd, the answer is no.
So I wanted to convert the disk from dynamic to basic, because I read that this is possible without losing any data.
I tried the AOMEI programs but it doesn't work (& I'm not sure about what it says to me about the possible data loss)
either i get this with the Dynamic Disk Manager :
either i get this with the Dynamic Disk Converter (can't proceed) :
I wanted to try the dskprobe method aswell (see : https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?t=726327
but I don't have a "42" at the mentionned line (see pic), so I prefered to not touch anything
I'm really stuck and really annoyed with this.
Could somebody help me pls ?
