Hey guys,

I am new to the forum. I have an issue where my PC is not seeing my hard drive. It sees my WD solid state drive fine. But I also have a 2 TB toshiba drive it does not see. I have gone into disk management and actually formatted it before, but it usually goes away in a very short time. I have done this 3 or 4 times. Is there a reason for this? Does anyone know if this is fixable?

Thanks is advance.

Check your power connectors to ensure the drive isn't losing power somehow. Also check the SATA cable to ensure it's not loose. If the drive is still disappearing, it may be the drive is dying. Does this happen in another computer or a hard drive dock?
