Can SSD drives be recovered?
Data recovery on a failed SSD
When an SSD fails it simply no longer works and with no warning.
If the drive uses TRIM, a system command protocol which indicates unused data blocks in solid state drives, then recovery might be impossible as TRIM aggressively deletes unused or system deleted files.
How do I know if my SSD is failing?
The common symptoms of bad blocks are:
- A file cannot be read or written to the hard drive.
- Your PC/file system needs to be repaired.
- Active applications often freeze up and crash.
- Frequent errors while moving files.
- Generally running slow, especially while accessing large files.

Why do SSD drives fail?
It can be caused by a variety of factors, but most notably age, physical damage, and heat. The latter two factors affect SSDs to a much smaller extent than they do hard drives, but age can cause both to eventually fail. Thankfully, symptoms and warning signs typically precede catastrophic SSD / hard drive failure.
