Need to Recover Use of Drive

#1 Post by railerfb »

I was given a drive that someone had disconnected during use. It's an SSD I'm accessing through a USB 3.0 converter. Windows will see it as a device but when accessing it Windows asks me to reformat. I attempted this but it failed. I've tried to find partitions in quick and deep scan but testdisk isn't showing anything.

All that matters to me is formatting this drive so I can drop it in my computer and fresh install an OS to it. What is my best course?

Log is attached.
