Is my ssd that crashes w/ an io error dead?

Sad day, I have a 512Gb ssd that I don't have a warranty on that is giving io errors... Is it toast or is there a magical way to bring it back to life....

That's not normal, for better troubleshooting you should run a SMART test though. Try one of these tools and post the report.

The program says the drive is fine. I am not an expert so I will go with that conclusion too. If it keeps throwing errors you should probably google them and try to find a solution, otherwise contact the manufacturer with the error #/id, they might be able to help you out.
