My HDD shows in BIOS but not in Disk Management (win10). When doing smart tests in BIOS it does not show any info at all, see image.
Does this mean its completely dead? Or is there still a way to get data from it?



P.S! SSD pic is just for comparison

Does it show up in boot menu?
Yes that it does.

show up in device manager?
new hdd? check storage spaces? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12438/windows-10-storage-spaces
it's an old disk, does not show up in device manager or storage spaces.

I should add that booting does take noticeably longer when the drive is connected even when it's last on the boot list. It's like it has trouble reading it, same when doing the BIOS SMART test
