Hey guys,

A couple days ago one of my SSDs that was my boot drive crashed. My computer went to one of my other boot drives from 2016 and I've managed to get it updated to the current version of Windows. When I go into my BIOS the drive is still there showing as P0, but when I use it, it does not boot. It goes back to my older boot drive. CrystalDiskInfo is showing me the SSD is failing, so I know it's time to replace it, but I would really like is to recover what I can from the C: drive and have my files ready to be moved over.

My setup is as follows:

Operating System
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU
Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.20GHz
Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
RAM
16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 686MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8Z77-V LK (LGA1155)
Graphics
HF229 (1680x1050@59Hz)
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (EVGA)
Storage
1863GB Seagate ST2000DM001-9YN164 (SATA )
0B Seagate ST2000DM001-9YN164 (SATA )
1863GB Western Digital WDC WD2003FZEX-00Z4SA0 (SATA )

Any help would be appreciated

Can you access the SSD via explorer when you boot from your older HDD? That would be the easiest way to transfer the data from that drive. If you cannot see the SSD in explorer then I doubt that recovery software would be able to read the drive
