SSD Drive not showing up in Disk Utility
I had an OWC SSD drive installed a couple of months ago which had been working great. I installed OS X Lion on it a couple of weeks ago. Two days ago, after I woke my computer from sleep, the system locked up and quit responding. When I rebooted I got the flashing folder of death. I booted off of a recovery thumb drive and ran Disk Utility thinking it was perhaps a user library folder issue. When I open Disk Utility my SSD drive no longer shows up in the list of available disks. I can see my attached drives and my original 1 TB internal HDD, however the SDD is no where to be found. Is there as way to recover the SDD without tearing my iMac apart and physically removing the disk to test it? I need help as I am now stationed in Korea and a mac service center is nowhere close.
Is this a good question?
