New 6TB WD Red CMR Crashes lost partitions, trying testdisk? : datarecovery


From NTFS windows, Installed Via USB Drive 3.0 into Unraid as unassigned to transfer to array.
Had multiple issues Dropouts, drive would drop, not mount etc.
Process Elimination – Removed Bunk Sata Card.
Ran Directly to the Array no SSD Cache (Not bypassing system, so to the share under mnt/Media)

Copied about 60GB. Crashed again.

Tried to mount on windows . Did not work or see drive.
Tried brand new 1tb wd in Enclosure. Tried to Copy couple large files to drive. Drive Crashed didnt work on that enclosure.

NOW – Loaded into main PC directly on Sata on MOBO. New 1TB ssddrive works fine.
6TB WD red is currently trying to recover.

Saw drive but now 600gb unused. 1.349TB unallocated. able to partition, 3.4tb Unallocated, Unable to partition.

Trying Testdisk, Found Partition but cannot view.
