Hi all,

I had a 240 GB Kingston SSD that went silent on my big rig. I tested it on
another Win10 PC. I have a SATA/USB adapter and a power supply for SSD. This
has permitted me to extract files in the past so I think it is a truth
teller. A warm boot failed so a hard boot was required. The 240 GB Kingston
SSD was not detected. I was hoping to do a scan disk and repair it. I have
done this successfully with uSSD. Should I try this stunt on WinXP where it
worked? WinX uses NTFS like all the rest. I could try test it on the big
rig. Why would it go silent? Pin problems?

Any hope to recover files?

Thanks
