SSD freezes when attaching files

Hello everyone, this is my first post on the SanDisk forums.

I have been having issues with my SSD (SDSSDP-064G). When I attach a file via e-mail and send it to anyone, the SSD randomly crashes without showing any errors/bluescreens - my display simply freezes and I cannot do anything except pushing the reset/power button (sometimes it does not stop after an enclosure and keeps running smoothly though). Other than that, everything works just fine. I have my SSD set as a system partition (currently using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with Service Pack 1).

The problem itself isn’t that serious, but it starts to become annoying after a while since I have to try multiple times to send a file on e-mail. It doesn’t matter whether I want to upload a single package or a few files at once. I have already tried to fix it on my own and that’s what I found:

  1. I can send files/photos through Skype/Dropbox with no issues whatsoever (so my upload is fine).

  2. Switching/Disconnecting other HDDs from SATA ports does not help (I have been thinking that my motherboard could be causing trouble because of other disks that are connected simultaneously). I doubt that it is a board-related problem because using an e-mail is the only issue I have encountered so far and everything else seems to work well.

It would be nice to hear some other ideas cause not being able to use your e-mail kinda ■■■■■ :slight_smile: Thanks in advance.



Bump. Freezing keeps happening almost every time when trying to enclose a file through e-mail. Does anyone else have a similar issue? Any tips?



this does not sound like it would be related to the SSD. most likely some issue with your email client. probably why noone has posted. 

How about isolating the issue like trying out other email client. Mozilla Thunderbird is a good one that’s free.
