I. What are the common causes of SSD failure?

There are countless reasons for the failure of SSDs, but they can be summed up in the following points:
Physical damage: Some inferior solid-state hard drive parts are of poor quality, which are easy to cause damage during use, which in turn affects the performance of the device.
Virus infection or malware attack: When a solid-state drive is attacked by a virus or malware, the internal data may be lost.
External impact or water entering the device: When a solid-state drive is dropped from a high altitude or hit by gravity, it will destroy its internal component structure and cause the device to malfunction. Also, if any liquid gets into the device, it may cause the SDD to malfunction.
The device is short-circuited: Since the internal structure of a solid-state hard drive is composed of a series of electronic devices, if the power supply fails during use, such as a sudden interruption of the power supply or an unstable current, it may cause a short circuit of the device and damage the internal data.
Drive firmware upgrade failed: Sometimes we need to upgrade the firmware of the solid state drive in order to improve the performance of the device. If there is an interruption or failure during the upgrade process, it is likely to cause damage to the device.
Just now, we have learned that the above reasons will lead to the failure of solid-state drives, and the occurrence of these failures may cause the loss of internal data. So if the solid state drive is broken, can the data be recovered?

If it is a small fault and the lost data is not overwritten by new data, it is still possible to recover the data successfully. It is recommended that you use professional data recovery software to scan and recover the data on the solid state drive as soon as possible. Here we recommend you to use Renee Undeleter . Of course, if there is a major failure in the solid-state drive, such as completely inaccessible data, or a large amount of new data has been written to overwrite the lost old data, the possibility of the hard drive data being successfully recovered is not high. In fact, data recovery is only a remedial measure, and it may not be 100% successful. It is best to do it regularlyHard disk data backup to avoid loss of important data.

2. How to recover hard disk data with Renee Undeleter?

Restoring data with Renee Undeleter is very simple, the specific steps are as follows:
Step 1: Download, install and run Renee Undeleter, select the (Partition Recovery) option on the main interface.
Note: Do not install on the disk that needs to restore data, so as not to cause data overwriting.
Select partition recovery option
Data recovery function introduction:
File recovery: Quickly retrieve files lost due to accidental deletion or emptying the recycle bin.
Format recovery: Quickly recover files lost due to inaccessible or formatted partitions.
Partition recovery: Partition information can be analyzed and obtained, and the entire partition can be fully scanned.
Create a mirror: A mirror can be created for a partition to back up the current partition state.

Step 2: Next, select the hard disk device to be scanned, and click (Next). Select (default setting) on the advanced setting interface.
Select target device for partition recovery
Step 3: Afterwards, the software will analyze the hard disk device. After the analysis, a prompt window of “select the partition you need to scan” may pop up. You can select the corresponding partition according to your needs. If you do not select, it will scan all the partitions and consume will be longer. After scanning, you can preview the files in the preview window on the right, then select the files you need to restore, and click the (Recover) button in the lower right corner to restore the selected files.

The above are the detailed operation steps for recovering hard disk data. Although the hard disk may have various faults, we can still use some methods to try to fix some problems.

III. How to fix SSD failure on Mac/Windows?

1. Fix SSD Failure on Mac

Use the built-in disk tool of the Mac system to check and repair SSD errors. The specific steps are as follows:
Step 1: Run the Mac device and press the (Command + Space) keys simultaneously to open Spotlight Search.
Step 2: Type (Disk Utility) and press the (Enter) key.
Step 3: Next find (Display)-(Display all devices), and then select the SSD device that needs to be repaired. Then click the (First Aid) button.
Step 4: If at this point the repair report shows that the SSD is about to fail, then you need to back up your data and replace the SSD. If there is no error report, click the (Run) button to repair the SSD device normally.
