  1. I tried it, and nothing changed... disk still isn't recognized if you unplug it and plug it back in.
  2. That isn't the problem. I'm not trying to recover data, I'm trying to get the SSD to retain it.
  3. I actually included a bit about vapor chambers, you see. I said something as small as a kink isn't something to worry about, but I suppose I didn't mention what would happen if you did bend up a vapor chamber. There are proper tools for doing this, but if you just torque it in half, yes you will absolutely ruin its thermal performance. I suppose when you say "kink", you mean something that impacts the volume inside. That's reasonable. I think OP just means there's a visual 'crease' on the surface, which shouldn't noticeably affect anything thermally as far as I know.
  4. Turn it off, first of all. GSync is the same as VSync, just a proprietary version for Nvidia monitors. If you want 220 FPS when your monitor is only 144Hz, you definitely don't want those frames getting limited. Second of all, have you compared your screen resolution to that video you're referring to? Maybe if your screen is bigger, your GPU has to work harder per frame. If your game is in fullscreen mode (which it has to be if you want to fully utilize your GPU), you could try turning down the resolution a bit.
  5. Are any of its cousins, like GSync or FreeSync or etc. enabled?
  6. Just a wild guess here, is "VSync" on? That prevents the game from rendering more FPS than your monitor can display.
  7. As long as it doesn't break, I don't think it'll be a problem at all. Even if you straight up bent it in half - copper still intact, heat still transfers. If you're looking to actually bend your heatpipes in half in the future, don't. But a kink? It's harmless, only cosmetic.
  8. No, heat pipes transfer heat, as long as the pipe itself is intact and thermally conductive it will work just fine. Even if you folded it into a pretzel, it would still transfer heat. I wouldn't even be worried if your heat pipes were a vapor chamber. Small kinks should not cause copper to fail, you're fine.
  9. Yes and I did properly eject and it didn't do anything. Sorry if that wasn't more clear. Same result. I doubt this disk has any weird cache flushing methods that we need to worry about.
  10. Filling the drive with zeroes and reformatting using Partition Wizard caused Windows to start asking me to format it again (Windows read the Partition Wizard-created partition fine before I reconnected it). I'm really confused, dunno what's going on... I'll wait for someone else to voice their input on this.
  11. I'm just going to fill the drive with zeros again using Partition Wizard and try formatting again. At least with MBR, Windows can still read the partition, and read files that I put there before I reconnected it.
  12. Ok, I scanned it and it said no errors found. Reconnected it, and it said there were errors again. So now I'm going to use this dialog, which is different than the one in Properties for some reason. (copy and paste stopped working for this post so I had to use puush) Then there's this again: Now this: Reconnecting it to my computer shows errors again. Ugh.
  13. It was my only drive, and it has seen constant, daily usage since I got my computer in 2016 - has never been replaced, since it's not soldered to the board... Simply having the external enclosure connected to my computer makes everything freeze and die, my laptop won't even boot if I have it connected because the boot manager gets stuck trying to figure out if it has any bootable volumes. MiniTool just took about 30 seconds to a minute to simply identify that this disk existed. (As in, I connected it, and it says 'Refreshing' for 30 seconds) It correctly identified the lone partition as exFAT, but couldn't read the label and said that 3.75 GB was used, even though I hadn't copied any files to it. When I converted to MBR, Windows once again popped up a dialog asking me to format the disk. Seems like it still wasn't recognized, ooookay. Formatted again using Explorer, copied a zip file to it, it was blazing fast. Disconnected it and reconnected it... now I got this. It recognizes the label and I have an option to scan it. I'll let you know the results of that.
  14. USB hub has no effect. This happens connected directly to a different physical port on my laptop bypassing the hub.
  15. Disconnecting a drive shouldn't corrupt anything if there is no activity and all buffers have been flushed. But safe removal does have the same result. Maybe it's the USB hub, I'll try without one.
