    I have a 1.2TB HD setup...created from 4 drives. 2 500GB WD, 1 80GB WD and 1 160 GB WD (western digital). I use the 1000GB (E:) for data only, the 80GB (C:) as my Primary Partition (only trusted apps), and 160GB (D:)for everything else.

    Lately I noticed that my D: drive was missing, windows shows no sign of it, But all the shortcut icons are in place, clicking one results in "file missing". I got the drive to come back by using safe mode and running msconfig to load only necessary drivers, but the drive disappeared again after some time and I had to repeat the procedure.

    Does anyone know what is going on?

    Thanks...

    You assume it a bug, but it could also be a drive failure.

    Yes, The drive still works fine...and is now, I'm trying to track down a root cause...

    Are you saying there is intermittent drive failure?

    Just because a person can function like anyone else, doesn't mean that he doesn't have any hidden disease. Just because you can store and retrieve data doesn't mean the drive is just fine.
