comment Hard drive has this tendency to just shut off
With crashing you mean that the systems shuts-down on it's own without me holding the power button on a completely (mouse goes too after some time) unresponsive system? Ah well, it it happens again then IT support may deal with it, I just hate to call India for a BitLocker unlock key...

I don't know how else to describe it other that it shut down / became unresponsive (no blinking indicator light, can use apps for limited time until I open stuff the freezes in about a minute). Also I was using the drive before this happened.

Nothing relevant is listed there, just a bunch of crashes of Office due to an update from earlier and a reboot was done afterwards. Also nothing from the previous occurrence. ... After looking a bit closer at the information events there have a few updates of Modern Apps just before the event, but I didn't note the time so I don't know had far off these are. I doubt updates of Modern Apps would cause this.

SMART came back clear and looking at tear-down pictures it doesn't seem to have any cabling for the hard drive, just the regular slot system.

Is this after 5,000 hours of non-continues running time I suppose? Unfortunately it's a Lite On SSD (I've never heard of them before now), and they seems to have an firmware file available for download but I don't know whether it's an update or not. How safe is updating the firmware on an SSD anyway?

The problem with the safe mode solution is that it happens a bit too rarely for it. It was a week and half since the last occurrence. I will try the SMART test.
