I haven't responded sooner to see if anyone else would respond first, as my experience is similar but different ...
I suddenly had an internal, working, 1.5TB HDD suddenly show up in Disk Management as a 16MB drive -- roughly the same situation as with the screenshot you posted.
Nothing I did in Windows allowed me to read, or to reformat, the drive. Nothing.
So, I obtained Active@File Recovery Pro and ran it, and it found the drive -- but it took hours to build a filesystem to access it, and retrieving files and folders was at the painfully slow rate of 1GB per hour!
After two weeks of data retrievals, I stumbled across HDD Regenerator -- for which there is a trial version if you hunt around a bit. It tried that and it worked! So, I acquired the commercial product, ran it, and it recovered the 8 bad sectors that were at the beginning of the drive, and when I then reconnected the drive, Windows could see it and use it, again. Then, I retrieved stuff I didn't have the patience to retrieve before (i.e., 40GB system backups!) and have since, retired the drive.
Don't know if it will even work on an SSD, since the tech in use may requires an actual HDD, but you might consider trying it to see what it does, at least, the trial version.
Right, but you mention like it worked before? right?
so if it was working before and then suddenly stopped and went dead like that, clearly it's a fault of the drive hardware writing something and it must have ruined while logging or god knows what.. and bricked the drive.. apparently the front blocks of the drive..
I mean it wasn't a change you made then right?
It was just drive going bad.. Is that correct?
if these are cases of the hard drives failing then it failed and that's that..
So you were able to read the drive with those programs, but did you then try to format it and use it? or just totally throw it away..
well-balanced, well-configured mult-layered defense is best
