  1. SSD lost 95% of its volume during reset


    Hi all,My laptop was crashing VERY regularly. I decided to factory reset it and I set that process going. Midway through the reset the laptop crashed. When I tried to turn it on again it said it couldn't boot. I assume windows was half deleted or something.I downloaded a new windows onto a USB stick and installed it fresh. Everything works fine now except my SSD has shrunk from 500gb to 27gb. There are no partitions visible in disk manageament pic attatched.I did another local factory reset with a complete data wipe and it still only thinks it's 27GB.I'm at a complete loss. I have a grand to

    After hard reset, OS disk showing no volumes/partitions

    Hi everyone,

    I've searched high and low on Google for the specific issue that I'm having, but I can't seem to figure this out.

    About a year ago, I built my own computer. I have my OS (Windows 10) installed on a Plextor M6 256 SSD. Today, for about the fourth time in a year, my computer became unresponsive during normal use. After a forced hard reset, I was taken to a black screen with the 0xc00000e error, telling me that a required device was inaccessible. After a quick Google search, I found many answers saying that this problem was because of a corrupted boot record.

    I followed the steps recommended by Microsoft. First, I attempted automated startup recovery. This didn't work. Then I attempted to use bootrec to fix the problem. This resulted in the tool telling me that no Windows installations were detected.

    I decided then to open diskpart. The disk itself was detected, but whenever I listed volumes, nothing showed up for that disk. No partitions or volumes were listed.

    I've since recovered the drive by flashing a Clonezilla image that I had as a backup, so everything is up and running now. However, I am curious as to why this problem keeps happening. I've downloaded the diagnostic tools from Plextor for my disk, and it says that everything is fine. I've also run a Windows memory diagnostic, which has returned no errors.

    My assumption is that the hard reset is causing some kind of partition table corruption. But, that still leaves the issue of why the computer is freezing up to begin with unsolved. Any suggestions/possible causes to investigate would be much appreciated!

  3. Lost SSD....

    I recently had a blue error screen and searched the internet to try and recover my pc, I basically messed around with diskpart added new volumes and stuff and none of it worked. In short I reset my bios and sorted it out myself but in the process of messing
    with diskpart I cannot see my SSD, it does not appear in BIOS or disk management...... I deleted all of the random volumes that were there so I only have my 4tb drive and my 320gb which I had to install windows on.

    I have looked it up a little and found something called Hirens boot CD, would I be able to find/recover my lost SSD in there?
