Thanks for posting. We understand that your SSD is showing 8MB as its capacity.
Have you tested running a Secure Erase using Intel® SSD Toolbox. If you're not using a Windows* operating system, here are other options to secure erase a drive:
- Run a Low-Level Format on Intel® Solid State Drives
Please let us know the results.
I was able to restore to drive under Linux. My problem is that it looks like the firmware update does not prevent this to happen again. The bug happens even with firmware that supposedly was fixing it. Is this known issue to intel; if this is going to happen again I have to eventually replace this hard drive.
