I have a Toshiba wireless external hdd which I have messed up when I tried to back up a Volumio music player which is a headless player linux that you can run from a browser or an ios or android app.
The Toshiba is split into 3 partitions
1. New volume (G)487.MB Fat32
2. 2.48 GB healthy primary partition
3.928.25GB healthy primary partition
I can access 1. new volume but it won't recognise the other 2 partitions unless I go into computer management disc management windows 10.
Is there anyway I can retreave the content of the lost partitions or Do I have to delete and reformat and start again?

These are likely Linux partitions (EXT4) - boot into Linux (using an Ubuntu boot disk) and try accessing under that.
