I was in the process of making a new backup SSD to replace the one that was killed by a faulty PCIe USB 3.0 expansion card.
I formatted a brand new SSD using Disks (NTFS format) and copied about 60GB of files on it. But when I connected this SSD in Windows VM as I always do, the disk appeared unformatted and empty
I reformatted the disk in question and now in the process of copying data on it one more time in Windows VM
Nothing is lost other than my time, but I am very puzzled why disk formatted as NTFS by Linux is not recognized in Windows?
If anyone has any idea/suggestion/hint/speculation/opinion, I'd love to hear.
I just realized that it was my first time using Disks to format SSD to be used in Windows OS. I always use Gparted and never experience such problem. At least I know how to avoid the issue in future, but still do not understand why the disk was not recognized in Windows.

No, it still does not work. Gparted formatted NTFS disk is also not recognized in Windows.
At least a similar thing happened to this Mint 20 user: [SOLVED?!]LM20 files on NTFS disk not seen in Windows 10 - Linux Mint Forums
I still see the external 2 TB drive but NONE of the files are visible and if a directory was created in Linux it may be seen in Windows 10 but it states that the directory is empty.
