    If anyone had their SD card in their android device previously, put it back in your android, format it via the settings (make it an external drive) and then simply eject it. Took me forever to realise despite it being so simple (dunno about recovering data I am no expert).

    Ok so my hard drive is not showing up on minitool partition and whenever I try to initialize it on disk manager it says “cannot initialize device that does not exist”. I have checked my SATA cables multiple times and even used a different cable. Does anyone have a solution?
