    Hey CF friends,

    Been a while since I've been on here but I need some help.

    The most recent Windows 10 update seems to have corrupted my SSD. The HDD is fine, as I plugged it into my backup and was able to access all files.

    The error is a long one, SrtTrail.txt.

    The chkdsk command says ETA is 91+ HOURS.

    Is this SSD still okay to use by completely wiping Windows and reinstalling? Or should I throw the towel in and get a new one?

    Edit: 241 hours, not keeping this PC on for 10 days. I'll be attempting a clean install :(

    I imagine the drive is fine. You can usually connect it via USB and install the software from the manufacturer and check its health. Generally if it formats properly you can probably install an OS on it.
