I have a disk that  is formatted with an EX4  Linux file system on a 2 TB Seagate hard drive connected to my Mac with a USB bridge. I need info off of that disk, so on my mac I installed parallels and Ubuntu 16.04. LTS.  In Parallels preferences, under Devices, the USB / ATA/ATAPI bridge is connected to Ubuntu Linux.  I have another USB external disk formatted NTFS connected where file system can successfully see in the Files Application.

The problem is that I cannot see the usb bridge connected seagate 2 TB disk listed in the File application.  Do I need to mount it?  How can I make this visible?
