imac – Is a SSD with the following First Aid report salvageable?


Barely 2 months old Samsung NVMe M.2 SSD is not readable by my Mac anymore. This is an external disk in an enclosure. I purchased a different enclosure too to confirm that the problem is with SSD only.

Following is the result of running First Aid on it:

As you may have noticed, the device shows up twice in the Disk Utility. When I try running First Aid on the second entry for the device, I get the following result:

My question:

Is there any way I can salvage the data on this SSD?

Does anyone here have some trick up their sleeve to fix this without attempting a format/erase?
