    NTFS Win10 booting SSD became RAW after crash


    I was switching tabs on Firefox when everything froze. I got the BSoD and it restarted. BIOS popped up asking if I what settings to use (enter setup or use previous). After use previous didn't work, I went into Bios and set to the correct settings. But when it would boot, the screen just was going black. After some testing with another computer, I popped in a rescue disk USB. The startup repair didn't work, so I went into the CMD. I ran diskpart and saw that the 3 volumes/partitions on the SSD were now raw. I connected the SSD to a working computer so I could use EASEUS disk recovery, to try and salvage the files before trying to do anything, but then the computer would stay frozen on the windows logo. I went into that bios and changed the SATA to hotswapping so I was able to plug the SSD in after the computer booted up. It recognized the recovery partition and that drive popped up in my computer. When I tried checking the other partitions in management, CMD, and EASEUS, it was just stuck on loading (for at least 40 mins while I made and ate breakfast).

    So right now, I have the bad SSD back in it's original computer, booted up with the rescue recovery USB disk. In diskpart list volume, the SSD partitions are Volume 0 C RAW Partition 100 MB healthy; Volume 1 E RAW Partition 222GB Healthy; Volume 2 F RAW Partition 539 MB Healthy Hidden.

    Any suggestions on how 1. I can backup the drive (the E at 222GB is the partition with OS on it)? 2. CMD prompts to run to fix the file errors? 3. Anything other steps I can do?

    Thanks! Been trying this since 7pm last night, so I'm out of options other than just reformatting and starting over (which isn't optimal with all the programs/apps installed). Let me know if there is any other information I need to provide to be more helpful.

    The most important thing to do at the moment is STOP using the disk until someone with the correct knowledge to help you posts. The more things you try, the more damage you are likely to do. Be patient, someone will be along to help.

    Ok, so I would install the free partition recovery software on PC2. I take the bad SSD from PC1 and connect to PC2. My issue is that PC2 hasn't been showing the bad SSD in either computer management/storage, EASEUS disk recovery wizard, or CMD. Would the EASEUS disk recovery wizard fall under your partition recovery software? Or would there be another one that would start to load/show the bad SSD?

    I did a quick search and deeper search and comes back with no partition. It took a few minutes for it to load, but it recoginzed the SSD was connected to the HD. Didn't pop up in EASEUS or computer management still as existing.

    I closed and opened up the program again to try running it again, the bad SSD is no longer an option.

    Another update... I went to PC3 (Windows 10 computer; try it instead of PC2 which is Windows 7). PC3 was able to boot up regularly with the bad ssd connected. Ran the Testdisk and it recognized the bad SSD. Ran the quick and deeper search, same result of no partition found. Closed program and reopened, bad SSD not an option again. Leaving the bad SSD connected to PC3 since it is able to startup without me having to disconnect. Computer management on PC3 did not recognize bad SSD too.

    I suggest you recover your files using recuva and format the drive.


    Download Recuva | Recover deleted files, free!

    The fact that you saw three volumes with drive letters C:, E:, and F: indicates that the partitions exist. ( No drive letter will be assigned if partitions do not exist. You can recover the partitions only if those are lost. In that case there will not be any drive letters)

    Clearly it is a case of file system corruption but it is beyond my comprehension how three partitions could have gone corrupted and RAW.

    Anyway what you can do is try TestDisk to check for file system corruption. Your first priority will be to recover the data if possible rather than repairing the corrupted file system.

    In TestDisk, rather than using [Analyse] which is used for Partition recovery, you will highlight select [Advanced] - File system Utils. and press Enter.

    Immediately it may show all the partitions in the faulty drive.

    Select your 222GB partition. Highlight/ select the
    [List] Command at the bottom and press Enter.. If TestDisk lists your files, Copy the files to another disk, (which you should have it plugged in before starting the TestDisk run)

    I did [Advanced] - File system Utilils. instead and it still says no partition.

    I was able to run Crystal Disk Info and got these results.

    I also was able to get the drive to come up in computer management for the first time. The I icon says that the drive is offline because of a signature collision with another drive.

    Offline or Missing Indicates that the disk is not accessible. This can occur if the disk is corrupted or the hardware has failed. If the error is not caused by hardware failure or major corruption, you may be able to re-access the disk by using the Reactivate Disk option to return the disk to Online status. If the disk was originally offline and then the status changed to Missing, it indicates that the disk has become corrupted, has been powered down, or was disconnected.
