Is My SSD Going To Die Soon?

Hi Friends,

I have this SSD in my PC which sometimes gets detected sometimes not. I need to specifically follow some steps and it works for sometime and then again the same issue persists. Is it going to die soon? Or it is OS issue?

Although it could be the case, it could also be problem is the BIOS/UEFI of your computer, connection between the motherboard and drive.

Steps to consider:

  • Reconnect the drive with motherboard. Also, try a different cable (if applicable).
  • Try the drive on another device. Are you still having the same issue? If not, then the problem is on your computer. If yes, then the problem is with the drive.
  • If the drive is old, then it could a hardware problem.
  • Are you using the latest BIOS? If not, check your motherboard support page, and update the BIOS.

If you still have access to the drive, make sure to backup the data.

In the case the problem is the drive, you should consider upgrade it, and good option is the Samsung 860 EVO.
