The enclosure worked. I plugged in the usb and seconds later the drive was automatically mounted, the icon appeared on the desktop, and the file manager of the drive was opened showing the files.


I decided to put the drive back in the 2nd hdd again. I did, then opened Disks. Surprisingly, it said it was of an unknown format. That is, it seemed to revert back to the original problem. I reformatted to ext4 though successfully, and then was able to mount the drive.
