1. Get the drive out and put in in another enclosure. If it works now, it's fine.
2. Get the drive out and connect to directly to a SATA slot in a laptop or PC. It it works now, copy all data to another disk, delete all partitions and make new ones.
3. If no luck with #1 and #2, it's time for a new external drive.
My 240gb SSD got corrupted.
I attached the SSD to my laptop using a Sata to usb and tried to check the partitions and maybe format the drive. While the SSD is connected, Diskpart fails to open. Same for Disk Management. Both work as soon as I disconnect my SSD
So I decide maybe secure wipe will work. I download two or three applications for secure wipe and same thing with them. They fail to open with the SSD connected. Starts immediately as i remove the SSD. If i connect the ssd after opening the application, it does no show up in the disk list.
The ssd shows up in explorer when connected via usb, though everytime i attempt to go into the drive explorer crashes.
What are my options at this point?
