My SSD just died 😫. The worst part is that I reinstalled Linux and windows 3 days ago and now I have to reinstall it AGAIN

    the good part, since you've reinstalled recently you didn't loose much data?

    Plus of course SSDs should really fail "Read-Only" wherever possible, so it might be possible to mount the file system read only and pull any missing files off.

    @Wildgoose It's completely dead. It reports that it has 2MB of storage. Not 2mb left. 2mb total. I contacted the manufacturer. They said that it sometimes happens and is covered by warranty.

    When I reinstall and setup the programs and tools I use, I immediately create an image of that installation. If you've done that, it would've been a huge time saver.
