Hi folks.

My Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD became read only (write protected) after a power outage throughout a windows update. Ever since then I’m not able to get any data out of it or even format it.

I actually tried the Diskpart method, the HKEY Local Registery Method, updating firmware plus a bunch of other stuff but to no avail.

Samsung 970 EVO Plus Crystal Disk Information ( Shows SMART Details)

Samsung 970 EVO Plus Magician 1 ( Shows Common Health)

Samsung 970 EVO Plus Magician 2 ( Shows SMART Details)

I’ve attempted to recover the Data using some applications ( EASEUS and Recuva) and none of them seem to work.

Is there any other way to recover the data? or should I not mess around plus contact a professional data recovery service?

Honestly the data there isn’t that essential. So is there any other way I could format mine and get my SSD back? or even is the drive just deceased and I have to claim warranty?

I bought the drive 6 months back and I did so take a look at the warranty papers and it said 5 many years warranty. My only query is does this come under warranty?

Thanks for your time in advance. Wish you can help me in some way. I might gladly provide any additional details if you people want.
