SSD Help required. Serious help needed.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i have an ssd (old ssd from my old pc.) which asked me for a password on new pc's startup. 

I know as a fact that i used it on the old pc without any passwords (bios password or whatever when you start the pc)
So i tried using an external harddrive case, connected to the new pc (take note that i dont have my old pc anymore.) and it wont let me use it. 

Check screenshots. 

So basically i wanted to ask you guys about how to wipe the drive (i dont need any recovery help. i dont have anything useful on there except for steam and some games.)

I just need the drive wiped and wanted to ask you what should i do. 

The drive is unallocated so most softwares cant find it. 

And the options for the drive are greyed out.

 

Hope you can help. Ask if you need more info

just initialise it (GPT or MBR is fine)

if u closed that window and cant find it, try right clicking the "Disk 1" square at bottom left (not the bar with grey lines, the box with Disk 1 Unknown 111.79GB on the left side of the box with grey line), you should see the option to do it there

 

after initialising, right click the Unallocated bar and select new volume, just configure the drive and click next until you have a usable partition.

i googled it, it's apparently for when your disk have bad sectors

 

try using tools like Crystal Disk Info to check the drive status, it should be able to detect it
