This is an old drive, about 6 years old, that I'd been having issues with for a while now (60% fragmentation, could defragment it at all and constant freezes/shutdowns).
I switched to and a Samsung 830 ssd for the os today. After a recent rebooted I can't see the drive anymore on My Computer or in disk management. However, the drive does appear in the BIOS list.
There aren't any critical files on the drive but I'd like to try salvage what I can, is there any way I can get it back up and running for a while, or to confirm that it's totally dead?
