That error could mean a hardware fault or it could just mean a bad write.

Power outage during use

Disconnecting the drive before ejecting.

Even a windows BSOD at the wrong time.

The problem with external drives is you never know what they put inside the box.

There are empty external boxes for almost anything . NVME,SATA 2.5 or 3.5"

The NVME don't even need a power supply.


Possibly a bad write.

At least no disconnecting issue as it happened in the middle of a write to the HD.
