    hi again. Yeah i contacted Samsung and they have given me an RMA to get my ssd fixed/replaced. I had no idea SSD's could just die so instantly like that! crazy!

    "Always keep recent backups!" is what i keep thinking now. i've restored my ssd backup onto a temporary small hdd for now so i can still use my system. Wow! its amazing how much slower everything loads at the moment! lol

    Thanks for everyones help; EightForums is my first port of call and an amazing forum - full of truly helpful people - thank you all!!! I'll regard this thread as solved now then
