I Need Some Help


[link to this post]
 
Hi All

Current setup:
C: system
D: data

A couple of weeks ago suddenly D: vanishes. Shut down, can see it OK in POST, but not in windows. Using Hitachi utility could see no drives attached to system. Couple of reboots later everything back to normal, so put it down to one of those things.

Last night does it again, except this time not visible in POST. Swapped data cables between drives and both visible. Swapped them back and everything booted OK.

This evening I couldnt see the drive on the network and found the sharing settings had gone.

I'm thinking drive is on its way, but wouldn't mind everyones thoughts.

Cheers

Grim

Is that quotable? wink

OP: Could possibly be something funky going on in Windows but get all your data off it immediately, usually a sign the drive is on it's way out.
