Hello,

I recently tried to access data on an old sdd i had been running for years. The drive was in a box after I built a new computer.

Maybe 2 months with no power to the drive.

Plugged it in today and it isn't detected in the bios and is not readable.

Is this because it's been unpowered so so long??

Strange.

Was going to say, that isn't typical. They can be powered off for quite a while. Glad it was something so easy!!
