While working my extra HDD suddenly stops showing in My computer I changed the HDD thinking it might be broken but i m facing same problem i switched the sata cable with SSD to see if its the cable but again HDD stopped not SSD, I changed to other 3 sata ports on motherboard excpet port 0 which is SSD but still having same problem. The HDD shows up when i power off and on the cpu but after a while it stops working(showing in my computer) i could not point where the problem is.

Just a Guess > the Drive is Partitioned > However the Partitions do not use the whole Disk Space

Is this a brand new drive? If not, have you used it in other systems?

Might be worth trying a different power connector. The physical SATA style power connectors are not nearly as tight fitting as the older style ones which had only 4 pins.

In the past, I've had drives lose their power due to a loose connection, and that has confused Windows.
