Unrecognized ocz vertex 3 SSD

by kinolulu / January 9, 2015 3:43 AM PST

I have a ocz vertex 3 SSD for over a year.
The problem is that for some days, I only detected the SSD in device manager.
When I go to the workstation I don't see it. There is also no letter assigned to the SSD.
I use crystal disk info but didn't detect any error.
How to solve this problem?
Thank you in advance for your help.

If it's in device manager but not explorer

The file system could be blown. Head to disk management and mind you only do this if there are not files to be recovered, remove the partition, create a new one and format the drive.

Thank you, but the issue is, I have important file on this disk.
So, are they a way to make this disk wok for a few hours, so I can recover my document?

You didn't reveal if it shows in disk management.

But file recovery is never done on our last copy. I clone the drive and use the titles noted in CNET's Storage Forum on the clone. Only those new to recovery try it on the original drive.
