Last year when my son got his first PC (Dell Optimax 9020 “short”), I gave him an SSD that had originally been in my dad’s iMac. It was a 480GB drive, that was installed by a Mac place in Maryborough. They’ve ripped most of the label off, so no idea what brand. It would have had very light use from 2016 until about 2021.
Well - it appears the SSD has failed. The Dell no longer sees it.
I’ve never had to perform recover on an SSD before… Is there any way to actually attempt to recover anything from them - or once they’re dead, they’re dead??
There’s nothing crucial on it - he spends his time in Steam or surfing the net mostly, and his school stuff is on his laptop instead. But it would sure be a lot easier if I can clone the drive to another one, as getting Windows set up on it was a pain in the ass…
