Ssd missing after restore

Used winclone to restore a image after creating a partition on a second ssd on a mac mini. However after that I am not able to see that entire ssd (that had a apfs partition as well as exfat partition) while booting up or after boot up with disk utility.
at this time I am looking for getting access to second ssd so I can at least use the disk in apfs for storage. Currently i can’t access that ssd at all. I will deal with windows once I am able to get access to ssd back. Anything doable here ?

It sounds like something physical is going on. Disk Utility should show the physical drive. You can also look in System Information and see if it shows up under Storage.
