Intel DC P3520 Dead?

New Contributor

Hi, I have a 1.2TB Intel DC P3520. After moving a VM library to the drive, the system started to give me I/O errors. I rebooted the machine and the drive no longer shows up in Windows or even the UEFI. The drive has solid yellow/orange light and green lights showing. Are there any ways to fix this? I tried it in two different machines so far. Still not showing.
