I've had a SSD for a little over a year on a sever. And once in a while, the server will bluescreen/be completely unresponsive. I've found out that it's the SSD going offline while the system is running because after rebooting (soft reset), the BIOS won't detect the SSD--unless I completely power off the system and turn it back on. Then the SSD is detected. I've swapped cables etc. What's the cause for this? Can it be a bad SSD? (Doesn't make sense that it would just "go offline"). Running Windows Server 2008...the logs don't tell me anything either.
This is a OCZ oynx, firmware is the latest. My HDTune results show it has a lot of bad sectors but I'm not sure if I trust the results.
HD Sentinel surface test shows about 19 bad sectors. Once I get my backup ssd (corsair), I'll reformat/reinitialize it to see if that fixes the issue.
