Mount USB without losing files
I am new to this forum, and to Linux as well.
Reused an old computer for Linux. Added an internal extra 500 GB hard drive. There are now about 300 GB with files on that disk that I really would like to save and not lose.
After a shut down the machine would not start up again. No power. Dead. I have now connected the hard drive to an HDD Adapter and inserted the USB cable to another Linux machine, also here with Zorin OS 9.
When I go to Start > Computer, I can see a JMicron USB to ATA/ATAPI Bride icon. Double clicking gives me the following message:
Unable to access location
Canít mount file
Please help! Where do I go from here - to access the disk and save the files?
