Pull that off. You will then have the seperate SATA + Power connector
Thanks for the quick reply!
I've tried giving it a good tug but it's not coming off. It actually seems like it's soldered in place at these 4 points. I do have a soldering iron sitting around so if I get this off I should have standard connection spots?
Nevermind was being a fool. There was a couple of screws on the same board to remove the usb/ac part and reveal the SATA. So I hooked it up but still nothing. I also tried booting into BIOS and its not recognised there either - to be fair the 2tb internal HDD i have didn't show up either but it does work when desktops up and running.
Interestingly this drive is no longer visible in Device Manager or Disk Management.
Do you think this means it's RIP?
Or something else I can try. As I said there was a particular recovery software I tried once that recognised the drive and let me access the files but I can't for the life of me remember its name.
