How it came about:
On a Windows 7 Pro 32-Bit Machine. I was running an incremental backup covering the usual user specific data and a couple of manually selected directories (nothing special: no system directories) with the standard windows backup and restore function. At roughly 50% of the operation my system froze up not reacting in any way holding that state for about 5 minutes followed by a self-induced reset.
Since this reset:
The SSD [PNY XR8 120GB / 4 weeks old] is no longer being recognized by the BIOS.
What i have tried:
- Different SATA Cables
- Every available SATA Port
- Every SATA-Mode (Disabled/IDE/AHCI)
- The power cycle (20 mins of power to the ssd without sata cable connected, disconnected power for 30 secs, reconnect and repeat twice - then restart with sata/power connected)
Can't find any concrete Information on this - any help appreciated.
