    Can you retreive the data from a broken ssd?


    I have an old ssd that is giving me this message, everytime i try to boot windows from it. Is it possible to somehow retreive some of the data from it?

    Hi Cerawy,

    Theoretically it may be possible to recover data from it, how much depends on the state of the SSD. You should let a professional do it though, they will have the right equipment for data recovery.

    What about putting it in a USB enclosure and trying to read it on another computer?

    I'd prefer to do it myself, what's the procedure?

    Well, if the disk is readable at all then you should be able to recover some or all of its data when it's connected that way [USB enclosure or SATA-USB connector].
    A couple of years ago, the second disk in my computer [containing data not the OS] failed and Windows could not read it at all. I put it in a USB enclosure and managed to recover almost all the files that had been written in the few hours between my last backup & the failure.
    Just copy from it. Don't write to it. Every write would reduce the chances of further recovery.

    There is no defined procedure.

    There are various utilities for data recovery but I suggest you try it in a USB enclosure first and then, if necessary, ask for help in your next post and include this

    to bring your problem to his attention & ask for his assistance. jumanji is widely regarded as the most experienced & capable TenForums member on this subject.
    - This example might be of interest but I would urge you to follow jumanji's specific instructions for your situation.

    - Include a Disk mgmt screenshot in your next post so he can see what's what.
    - Expand the columns in the upper half so all the text can be seen in each column & drag the window edge about so all the disks can be seen in the graphical part.

    Are you sure that message is from the drive not the BIOS

    If I was in the same position I would be trying Macrium to see if the drive can be imaged - either via Windows or via their recovery environment.

    There are two kinds of drive failures: Logical and hardware.
    Logical can be fixed with check disk or formatting. Hardware failures can't be fixed.
    As your drive gives some info when you try to boot, it can be a software issue.
    As you have a desktop, attach it to the MB and boot from another drive.

    It would be wise to make a copy of the disk. There are various ways to do it.

    One suggestion is to use something like linux based parted magic and see if that can copy the disk or at least the windows partition, if you are having no luck with windows/winpe. You need something to copy it onto.
