My apologies for another typing error.  I have edited the mistake in my earlier post.

The commands should have been
Code: [Select]
sudo dumpe2fs -h /dev/sdc5
Code: [Select]
sudo dumpe2fs /dev/sdc5 | grep superblock
You need to check and confirm that the SSD is still at /dev/sdc5 and not mounted.

I don't know what scalpel is - sorry.  If you wish to go down another path to try to solve the problem I completely understand.

With the SSD connected, run this command in a terminal - enter your password if asked.
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -lThis command with the -l option lists partitions connected to your system.
Next, run this command
Code: [Select]
lsblkThis command lists block storage devices connected to the system along with mount status
Please post the results of both commands.

I think it might be a good idea to a clean start and post back with the dmesg output and the journalctl output so that we can see if anything is different.

You seem to have progressed.
Does the SSD mount now or is it still failing ?

The second part of your post (since edited) shows you entered "blkid", then "ext4" and then the fsck command exited with "Possibly non-existent device?"

I don't understand where the messages beginning "Force rewrite" come from.  What command was that ?

Sharing the results from a terminal is usually done using the code tags.
When writing a message you should see a number of face icons above the text entry box.
Above those icons are some button icons.
Locate the '#' button and place the mouse over it.  It should say 'Insert Code'.
Clicking once on the # button should place a pair of code tags into the text entry box.
The tags will be enclosed by square brackets.  Anything you put between the tags will be formatted properly in a blue box when posted.  Use the preview option to check what your post will look like.

Posting guidelines can be found at https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/introductions/forum-posting-guidelines/
Just after the 'Thread Title' section there is a guide to pasting terminal output into the forum using codes tags.

It appears your disk is failing to mount because of corruption, possibly it was incorrectly disconnected on a previous use and the system is suggesting to use fsck.

Accepting advice off the internet is risky.  Research to double check advice offered. Take extreme care when entering commands.  Ensure you have a working backup of your system and essential data.   If the data on the disk is important you may want to get advice locally from a reputable expert.

Your first post referred to 'Error mounting /dev/sdb5' whereas the most recent post refers to 'sdc5'
It is important that the correct parameter is used when trying to fix disk problems.

Identifying the disk and attempting repair may be easier with a GUI.  If you prefer to use a GUI, the tool you need is 'Partition Drives' aka Gparted.  Let us know if you need help with this.

If you prefer to use command line,  start by showing the hard disks on the system with this.

Code: [Select]
blkid
Identify the device name used by the external SSD, it will be in the form /dev/xxxx
Make a note of the device and also the TYPE listed.

Post back if you can't identify the drive and TYPE.

When you have the correct device and TYPE for the external SSD, run file system check to see what it reports.
If for example, blkid reported "/dev/sdc5" and TYPE="ext4" for your SSD, you would run the command below, but the command you use may be different.

Code: [Select]
sudo fsck.ext4 -v /dev/sdc5
Post back with the results.
