We are sorry to know that your SSD has failed.
For this type of issue it is advised to Contact Intel Support, a support agent in your region will help you troubleshoot, and if needed, provide warranty support.
For further replies, please use the original thread created for this issue:
I purchased a used PC
Put the Intel drive into the PC
Booted Windows from the Used PC Hard drive
Ran the tool it said furmware upto date
Ran the tool that said to run every week
Took intel drive out of used PC
Put back into the broken PC
BROKEN PC NOW WORKING PERFECT
My guess - the drive was asleep - or needed the tool to be run as part of normal use.
I should have read the user manual
is this thread useful
if not we should change the subject/title as its not true
We are glad that your SSD is working correctly now.
The tool that you mention may be the SSD optimizer function of Intel® SSD Toolbox. If this is what you are referring to, please keep in mind that in current operating systems (like Windows 7* or later) the OS runs TRIM in the background to the optimize function, in these systems, running the optimizer may not be required.
If the SSD is not optimized, or if TRIM is not running, it would cause slow performance, but the drive should still be detected. So the issue experienced may be related to something else.
We would advise you to update the BIOS of your PC, as well as the firmware of the SSD. Then monitor the system in case there are any further issues.
