@CassRT WD may honour the warranty without a receipt as they know the production date from the serial number. This would be especially so in the case of a model that has a known issue.
As to the one month warranty by the repairer, you won't use them again. They however have supplied you a drive with 5 years warranty and although they may not cover labour the drive they sold should simply be replaced. They will probably say as you took it out they no longer are responsible, but that is BS. I don't know what country you are in or what the laws regarding such things are. Here in Oz we have a statutory warranty that means an item or repair should last as long as a reasonable person would expect and as the drive has 5 years then the whole warranty would be at least 5 years. Fighting them is another thing.
I hope you paid for the repair by credit card and it is less than 6 months ago. If so you can raise a recharge with your credit card provider on the basis you did not get what you paid for, refusal of replacement/repair of faulty item under warranty. Stick to your guns that if the SSD has 5 years warranty that they cannot say our warranty is only 30 days.
Your credit card provider will be on your side, I have had them fix quite a few issues for me and as such I always pay by credit card. So they get a loyal customer out of it which is the purpose of them taking your side. Credit Cards may be the last place left that the customer is number 1.
BTW I personally never buy another WD drive, I have had numerous issues and I do not like how you cannot use other drives in WD cases and that WD portable drives cannot be removed from the case and used in other cases, bays etc (the sata-usb interface is integral to the drive so if it fails and the drive is still ok you still throw the whole drive away. Now this is my personal opinion and yes other drives fail etc. AS far as SSDs I like Samsung, but there are other good brands.

Bravo Microsoft - we've all been waiting for this, this is an excerpt from the Microsoft Insider Blog:
"[Taskbar & System Tray]
We’re excited to bring you an early version of one of our most requested features for Windows 11, never combined mode. In never combined mode, you’ll be able to see each window of your applications on the taskbar individually, as well as their corresponding labels. You can find this feature by navigating to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > Taskbar behaviors. This feature is beginning to roll out, so not all Insiders in the Dev Channel will see it right away.
Taskbar in never combined mode."

It is this thread and millions of users that have contributed to the return of this feature, of course in the public version of Windows will probably be in 2024 :)

I'm cautiously optimistic, but I won't upgrade to Win 11 until a bunch of you from this thread confirm that you have Win 11 and the "never combine" is as easy to access as it is in Win 10.

Of course - currently only in the Dev channel. Insider has been implemented, but this is the correct order, I would like the implementation to the public - stable version of Windows11 -> already in the fall of 2023, but I think it will not be possible.
