Maybe you’re aware of it maybe not, but Crucial SSDs have a mechanism to “self-repair” themeselves which means if your SSD just broke out of nowhere you have a good chance to give them a second life! Of course this will not work if the hardware itself got physically damaged.

Repair your broken SSD

This guide doesn’t replaces a professional data recovery laboratory, which would be a more serious way but you can try the method below before you sendit away - which might costs a lot of money.

Power cycle your SSD

There is no gurantee but you have nothing to lose at this point - you only can win something, so go ahead and try it yourself. I have tested it with an old Sandisk drive and it didn’t worked, a friend tried it with an older Crucial and he reported it worked.

Let me know if you could gave your old SSD a second life.
