I think my SSD failed

I got a message that my hard drive failed to connect. I tried restarting, changing the enclosure and I still have the problem. I have a new hard drive that I happen to have so I connected it and now I can get access to the node but now I have to wait to resync bitcoin core to the new hard drive. I have also entered my 24 words into LND app to recover my channels. Did I do the correct thing to restore my node or did miss some steps? Also is it common for a 6 month old WD ssd to go bad so soon? TIA
