I had a Firecuda 2Tb from 4 years.
It was new technology, Hybrid NAND electromechanical.
I had all my wav recordings plus my work back-up in it.
It was new. Still under guarantee.
Then it disappeared from my PC.
I tried everything. Every professional, paid tool to recover something.
Linux. DOS. WinPE. Nothing. The Hybrid interface would not allow reconstructions of the files.
Not a single Jpeg. Song. Line of code stored there was recovered.
It never happened to me that I could not recover anything except from another WD hybrid HDD, with as similar interfaces problem...
Beware. :cry: :cry:

Seagate is temporary storage. Not sure about their SSDs, though.

A very harsh lesson.

Always have multiple back ups of important files.
It might be worth contacting a professional restore company if the files are really important to you.

Regards,

John
