Hi there,

A few nights ago, I was running a bunch of programs when they all froze and I got a BSOD. Upon rebooting my computer, the system couldn't start windows. I decided my best method to start off was to install windows on one of my extra drives and just move on.
I noticed when I went to install windows that my SSD showed up as "Unallocated Space" but it wasn't selectable.

Now when I run Disk Manager, I can see the disk, but it is blacked out and the computer is asking me to initialize the disk to see it. I'm afraid this will erase my important work documents, so I haven't taken any further steps.

Can anyone please help me recover my data from this disk? Is the disk still salvageable?
Any suggestions are welcomed. I know one wrong move could erase everything.
 
Stuff will only be erased if you do some sort of Erase/Reset, if enabled in your firmware...

However, as the drive is now in 'unallocated space' (as if it were new, essentially) i'd imagine it's going to be difficult to do much with it within Windows...

Is the data worth at least ~$300 at https://www.300dollardatarecovery.com/

I know Recuva has recovered files from SSDs that had delete partitions, and were quick formatted, but, am hesitant to recommend that path intentionally if the data is important, and, if you are willing to give it to the Pros above...

Initializing overwrites partition table. Skip that for now.
Install Minitool Partition Wizard free and try partition undelete function.

Thanks for the tip. I tried both the Partition Recovery and the Data Recovery settings within minitool, neither were able to turn up any data.
I also notice that my SSD seems to appear and disappear from the lists within the tool. Which makes me wonder if it's got some kind of faulty connection. I tried a different SAT port and power plug.
