I have 3 drives installed on my PC (1) solid state drive for the O.S. Win 7 Pro dual booting with a VHD Win 8 Pro (which I really like). The other two SATA drives are for storage (1) 500 gig partitioned in two and (1) 320 gig not partitioned.
Here's my problem: Periodically the 2 SATA (NOT the SSD) drives will disappear and the only way to get them back is to shutdown my PC and disconnect them from the MOBO and then plug them back in. When I restart they reappear. This happens from time to time but without a trigger that I'm aware of.
I've tested both drives and they are healthy and I'm at a loss why this happens.
Any and all help is appreciated.
