What's going on with your motherboard? If Recuva was able to get stuff back, then that means you messed up the MFT somehow. I had that happen a grand total of once, and it was when my USB3 expansion card shorted out and took my new 4TB with it. Fortunately all the data was still there, and TestDisk was able to simply recreate the MFT. I'm sure that you could've done the same thing (and it would've taken way less time than using Recuva since you're fixing the problem rather than manually moving files around).

You sure your SATA controller isn't fucking something up?

Not that I know of (though I should state they were MyPassport Ultras...)

Wait, these were external drives? Okay, then are you sure your USB controller isn't screwing up? See above--I had a cheap-ass USB3 expansion card that shorted out and caused one of my drives to forget its MFT. Thankfully MFTs are backed up and so restoring them isn't difficult. Replaced it with a not-soldered-by-monkeys card and not a problem since.

I thought it was the controller for sure but it's basically the same thing on other computers in the household - even on my new Laptop. I'd might have to check, though.

So you're saying that you've had these drives break multiple times while plugged into other computers in the household? blink.gif

Ah, no. I tried to see if the drives worked on the other computers after they stopped working on my main. I apologize.

They wouldn't work if the MFT is fucked up. You could've fixed it on any other machine with the correct tool however (such as TestDisk). That observation doesn't mean that your controller isn't messed up and doesn't mean that the controllers on your other machines are.

Yeah, I fear that it may be the case. For now, I'm glad to have my important data recovered, but just- yeesh.

I had repeated problems with a WD320GB which I connect through an USB carry, reinstalling the drive in the devices list didn't solve the problem, even it seemed a driver problem; what solved it was to reinstall motherboard's chipset driver, the chipset controls how the motherboard uses the USB ports, I would recommend to have that in mind.

Joining late and I think it's been said. But. Here's a quick and dirty take.

SSD = big thumb drive. In the same way that a thumb drive can magically get up and die - so can your SSD. It has a maximum number of (manufacturer tested based on benchmarks and metrics) writes before failure. Usually this can get you through a few years and may go beyond the warranty period but if it goes there's less hope of recovery than with a HDD.

HDD = tried and tested. But. Not perfect. You may have a perfectly working drive that suddenly stops in a similar way to an SSD. Usually this isn't the case as you'd get some form of warning. Either with a performance drop or SMART. Just bear in mind that a drive that has SMART status "GOOD" doesn't always mean that. You could have bad sectors or a failing controller but SMART doesn't detect it.

Still - since you got the information you needed off that's a plus for you. My recommendation would be to use the SSD for OS, games (or frequent apps) and temporary storage then use a HDD for backup. SSD is faster. HDD is (IMO) more reliable.
