    Maybe think about doing this whilst you have the offending SSD on USB and wipe the MFT, just to be sure:

    I have had it up to the back teeth trying to get that Corsair MP300 SSD online.
    In all honesty, Bryan I think my paying out $30+ for a M.2 NVMe SSD to USB adapter would be akin to my putting all my money on a 10Million to 1, three legged Steeple Chaser to win the Grand National.
    No offence, your suggestion is probably very good and you wouldn't have offered it if you didn't have a knowledge, but, the Corsair SSD which I bought from Comp Lounge 2+ year ago because it was on Special for around $30.00 is only 240GB and if I were to add another $50.00-$60.00 to the cost of the SSD to USB Adapter I could buy the Kingston A200 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD

    The Corsair SSD is beyond repair, being accessed, made Online or deletion of what is on it. It's trash. Game over.

    Try running one of the Linux distributions like Mint on a DVD or USB and try erasing that M2 SSD using Linux, it's possible that Mint or whatever won't honour windows protocols saying it is offline and you may be able to clear all the rubbish
