How can I revive an Intel SSD 520 that has died. Can warming it in an oven do it as rumored? And how if so. It has my operating system on it so now my desktop is non functional.
Preheat to 350 and bake for 55 minutes. Insert a knife to test; if it comes out gooey, put it back in the oven for five more minutes.
No, I don't think so. Look in BIOS to see if the drive is seen. And try it externally mounted on another PC to see if anything can be read.
Sorry, it appears that the SSD is toast. It happens eventually to SSDs and USB flash drives. Your external dock will not go to waste, however. Every time you have a problem with an SSD -- and you will -- use it to determine what the problem is.
By the way, did you use Disk Management (right-mouse on Computer, select Manage, then select Disk Management) with the external dock? If you only use Computer, you only see devices with partitions. Disk Management sees all working drives.
We are following up this case and we would like to know if you still have questions about your request or if you contacted our support team.
We will be waiting for your answer.
As the previous user mentioned, the rumor is not true. You may want to test it externally or check the BIOS to make sure it is detected.
Please let us know.
