So, I was reading about baking hard drives to "fix" them.

I am wondering, can you do this with mini PCIe hard drives?

Just a last resort idea if my ssd is officially dead.

:pfff:

So, what's wrong with this thing?
How did you arrive at the conclusion that 'baking it' might cure its woes?
And what drive is this? Make/model, please.

Sorry, I never replied. Ultimately, I decided it's probably better not to do it...chemical smells and all. I would have been trying it with a hard drive that I didn't really care about. I don't remember where...but in a forum online somewhere, I read that you could slightly bake your hard drive at a very low temp to "reset it". I'm guessing the idea came from what @tsnor said above.
