    My system keeps rebooting occasionally. It was worse when I had a Seagate 1.5TB drive which has been known to have faulty controllers.

    I returned it.

    Now am using a Verbatim External 2TB. Now I got it again when PureSync was backing up selected files.

    Acronis Drive Monitor gives this message:

    "The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur."

    Windows 7
    8 Gb of ram
    AMD Triple Core Athlon

    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

    So why would it reboot?

    After noticing the Sysinfo download, this is what I got

    Okay, interesting. So, you have a C, E, F, and a K drive. How many physical drives do you have? As in hardware.

    It's confusing because I have just taken out a BLU-RAY DRIVE.

    I have two interior hard drives, C: and E-F partitioned in two. Then I have one DVD drive [until Friday when I get the proper Blu-ray writing drive back in.

    I also have several externals but the only one hooked up right now is K:1Tb backup drive and N: and older 250 MB backup drive.

    Internal HD
    E with F partitioned on it

    External Backup Drives

    No crashing reported or observed today.

    Have you checked your temps and voltages? You can access this info in the bios OR you can install something like hwmonitor and check them in windows.

    If temps too high on hard drive, it might reboot?
    I have a LOT of fans but ....
    I can try hwmonitor...
    I usually use Crystal Disk Info.
    What temperatures in particular could be a problem?

    The temp and voltage I am referring to are as follows;
    CPU temp
    System or mb temp
    12V rail
    5V rail
    3.3V rail
