The drive is 170 GB with two partitions, H and J. Recently every few days Windows Explorer does not display this drive and the safely remove hardware tool does not list them. I need to switch off the power to the drive then switch on again, this seems to correct it. Anyone got a solution?

Try uninstall ing the USB from DEvice Manager while the Drive is Connected then restart computer
