Well something happened... Interesting that the partition ID somehow changed from NTFS to FAT16 and it appears to be overwritten with a FoxPro database file header.

Do you use FoxPro?

FoxPro was a DOS/Windows database management system. We will assume for some unexplained reason /dev/sdb1 file system is now corrupted. We do not know the extent of the damage. The next step is file recovery assuming you want to save data from the drive.

Just for interest sake, if I remove the external from it cover and install directly to my motherboard, could I salvage the data?

The tools I recommend are testdisk and photorec. It is advised if possible to create an image of the drive as a backup.

It should not matter how the disk is connected.
