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....
