Hello everyone, I hope someone can help with advice for this strange problem I'm experiencing right now. I have a desktop system with 4 hard drives inside (you can never have too much storage). Everything has been working flawlessly for a long time, until recently: one of my hard drives is no longer accessible from Windows. When I open Windows Explorer, it takes up to 2 minutes to load, and the drive shows up with no label on it at all. If I try to open that drive, Explorer hangs and comes back telling me the drive has no format, and asks whether I'd like to format my drive. Windows' Storage manager (under computer administration) sees the hard drive with no problem, reports its size correctly and tells me the volume is OK and active, but doesn't see its label. However, PartitionMagic 8.0 can see the drive's label and reports everything else alright. If I try to scan the drive for errors with PM 8.0, it comes out clean. This being said, of course the drive is seen by the BIOS, I haven't added/removed/modified any of my hardware recently. I really haven't tried CHKDSK or anything like that because I wouldn't know where to approach the problem from, but I suspect the problem isn't physical. Any ideas? Peace! Nico.
