I was in the middle of zeroing a drive using MiniTool Partition Wizard.
Power cut off during the process and now the drive is no longer detected by Windows. It does still spin up, however.
Is there any way I can bring it back?
2000 GB Seagate. Model ST2000DM001
 
Does it show up in the BIOS?

If so, does it show up in
WIndows Admin Tools>Computer Mngmt>System Tools>Storage>DIsk Mngmt?

If data is needed to extracted from it, perhaps it can be quick formatted, and have a recovery tool (such as Recuva used to recover data......

It does not show up in BIOS - although I'm not entirely sure if it would since it's plugged in via a USB adapter.
When I said it is no longer detected by Windows, I meant fully. Disk Management does not see it. The Partition Wizard doesn't see it.

As I said, I was in the process of zeroing it when power cut. There's no data I need from it. I just want to be able to use it completely empty.
