Updated one day, went to bed, next day, hard drive isn't working.
So I'm not certain if maybe my hard drive just died coincidentally when I downloaded microsofts april updates or it was the actual cause. The hard drive is an OCZ agility 3.
So far I've:
-Tested in two separate pc's, both gave me the same result, tried to access it from one pc from within windows itself and it wouldn't show up under my computer but it would show up under the remove devices prompt.
-Tried using the official SSD utility and while it would detect it, it wouldn't properly analyze it, it would just give me "100% life left" when I've had the drive for over 3 years.
-Tried using the windows repair disc only to be told it isn't compatible with the OS on the hard drive and I should also mention that through both the SSD utility program and the windows repair disc itself, it says the drive is completely empty.
However, having said all this it isn't a huge loss, the hard drive was small, I didn't store anything on it and mainly just used it to store windows 7 while my others held everything else. I just wanted to get an opinion from those who know much more about this than I and to confirm that I've done (mostly) what I could do to potentially fix the problem.
