I've discovered that the 4TB HDD in my old enclosure isn't messed up, it's actually the adapter board that's somehow gotten confused. The external enclosure has been working great with this HDD for years. A couple weeks ago I make the mistake of selecting the wrong drive while setting up an image write for my RPi and... well the rest is history. The adapter will no longer recognise the full capacity of the drive, acting like it has a 32bit LBA limitation as discussed in the Conventional Drives forum (screencapture attached for reference. I have also included a photo of the board for clarification.)

Before I spend money on a new enclosure, does anyone know how such a thing happened and how I might reverse the confusion?

Thanks!
Landon
