I have just run into probably the worst issue I ever had with my linux setup.
I was redoing a wineprefix since a cache cleanup and duplicate file deletion I did at least a day before appeared to remove some files preventing me from playing some games in the prefix; some config files were user-removed during the cleanup and I’m confident they weren’t important for computer operation (not so sure now). My PC froze for the 3rd time (this one different from the other two) while installing some dlls. When I turned my PC back on, it would not boot into my SSD (my linux drive). I downloaded a LiveUSB to try and fix the issue as I’ve done before except it WOULD NOT boot up the LiveUSB unless my SSD was disconnected. I cannot recover the files nor run timeshift to revert my installation to before I cleaned up my system.
Any suggestions on how to overcome this predicament? I really hope my SSD isn’t just dead cuz I’d really like to recover my files if possible. And for the love of God, please tell me this isn’t the rarest of f-ups to ever happen and is reversible error.
Now my ssd appears as SANDISK MILPITAS OB and i cannot access partitions because they apparenrly dont exist. No superblock, no superblock backups, NOTHING.
it really is starting to look like my drive is dead and no diy method to fix the issue unless proven otherwise.
