Boot Disk Not Found 03/13/2014
Fast, worked great when it worked.
The drive somehow erased its own boot sector. Running a PC, didn't update, shut down the computer after doing some graphic design like any other day, the next morning the drive was gone. BIOS sees it, but can't see what size it is or the information on there. Doesn't see any boot sector on it. Tried repair options through CMD prompt and using the Windows Repair disc. Nothing got it to recognize. Even when the disc is in, windows won't even recognize that the device is there. Lost major client data and about a month of work on the current project. Had drive installed and running for just 2 months.
I did some research and apparently many SSD's are frequently eating their own boot sectors. Not sure why, but it seems to be a big issue and Corsair claims to know nothing about it. Maybe I got a bad drive, maybe these SSD's don't have their kinks worked out yet. All I know is I am out a huge paycheck and reputation and all Corsair can do is RMA me a used (instead of new) SSD with the same potential problems.
