 Is there a way to revive  a SSD drive that cant be mounted after SMART Hard Drive Detects Imminent Failure message?

Disk management programs and clone programs can see the partitions but can not change it.

It was possible to make a  perfectly working clone of the SSD drive to an other.

It  bugs me to say goodbye  to the 2 TB SSD  though, as apparently the the operating system itself contained on the disk has no flaws.

Tried several ways and utilities to initialize or mount the SSD drive but its still in la la land.

((shakes  the SSD  insanely screaming let me in Let me in))

if you have already tried different solutions then no!
and anyway, it may be temporary if it succeeds
see what i say in this macro
If the reader is no longer readable, then difficult to make an image
And if you succeed, it may lead to problems with the new SSD
A copy with errors is not ideal
But in any case, the best thing is to test


This is a macro, recorded answer, read the following carefully, and see according to your own problem.
If you have any doubts, ask me, I will try to answer the best
you have an error message, or a problem with the hard drive (or SSD)
this indicates that your hard drive is certainly damaged
Depending on the error, and its condition, it may fail anytime.
maybe it doesn't work anymore
First of all, you can try to recover personal data

 Once your data has been saved
You can either follow the following or buy a new hard drive directly!
What I am indicating now is just a rescue option
If it works, it will be temporary, back up your data regularly
depending on the hard drive condition, it may work a good time
but the hard drive may fail permanently
it is mainly in order to be able to use the computer, the time to replace the system disk
be careful because the goal is to erase the hard drive, your unsaved data will be lost
so you have to reinstall the computer completely
There are several methods, depending on the installed windows system and your computer

Try a full reinstall

You can try to help yourself with this tutorial (sorry not fully translated)
