850 Evo might have failed. Seeking assistance

Hey all,

So I shut my PC down after probably a few weeks to a month of operation and after coming home to turn it on, I noticed I couldn't get to my Plex media that's stored on there. Lo and behold, the drive (D:/) was missing. I turned her off and on again and same thing.

So here I go, doing my IT stuff and went to disk management and noticed Disk 0 was not initialized. I tried to initialize it from Disk Management and got "A device which does not exist was specified"

Also in Disk Management it's listed as Disk 0 - unknown - Not initialized

So then I decided to go to the CMD prompt and try it and did the following

CMD as administrator

DiskPark > List Disk and got:

Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 0 B 0 B
Disk 1 Online 476 GB 499 MB *


So then I selected Disk 0 and tried to initialize, clean etc and got nothing.

Also, Disk 1 I think appears to be wrong. I have more than 499MB free on that disk but actually have 176Gb. So something tells me this may be partly a Windows/Drivers problem. I want to say that when this happened, the last time the computer was restarted was after a windows update. Sadly, it's been over the 10 days and can't roll back. I want to avoid having to restore my computer or actually reinstall windows as I have a lot of junk on here I wish to not have to reinstall if this is an easy fix.

Also, I have tried to go to device manager and uninstall the driver, and reboot. I tried different sata port and sata cable as well.

What do you guys suggest? I've tried googling and figured my good ol friends from here may be able to assist. You'd think that this is an SSD, I wouldn't have a failure like this and it's only maybe 2 years old....

Thanks!

P.S

Error logs states: VDS fails to write boot code on a disk during clean operation. Error code: [email protected]

Is Samsung Magician able to recognize the drive?

Samsung Magician just says “unsupported” but it does detect it. I really I hope it’s not dead as I have all my personal files and work on this drive. I put it on the SSD as I would think it wouldn’t fail... if it did fail, it’s my last Samsung drive, this shouldn’t be a thing...

It sounds like the drive is bad. I had the same behavior out of two hard drives on my Dell server back in 2016. You could try reinstalling or reformatting it. Worst case, if that does not work, it would confirm drive failure. That is what I tried on mine and ultimately wound up replacing the drive.

Any brand of SSD fail. You should have a backup drive like I do and use windows 10 automatic file data backup.

I use Acronis True Image. It automatically does a backup of my C drive every 4 days. First backup is a full backup and then the next few backups are incremental backups. After 4 or 5 incremental backups it does a full backup and deletes the previous backups.

It has already come to be very handy as I have already had my C drive corrupted due to unstable OC and it wasn't fixable. Through the Acronis software, I was able to reboot into a special mode (a feature of the software) that fully restored my C drive from the backup.

I own a Samsung 840 EVO since 2013. It still works fine after abt 23k hours of use and 15.3 TB written.
