Update 26Mar24: After trying various utilities including the recommended ADATA utility for SM2258H we could not get data access using the almost 100 different loaders to initialise this SSD for recovery. So I tried again using the Crucial BX500 SM2258XT and finally some success. It did take over 5 minutes to load the utility and it loaded CP modules etc. No need for loader. I skipped this as I wanted to check for data access first and yes there was data access now. Making a DE task via the utility did not work. I used sata1 port direct and I was able to make a task to get all the data back. Here is a copy of the successful data recovery utility log file:
