I have a asus MB z270-gaming K3.
It has only one slot for nvme ssd where i connected the ssd.

Windows in on another "normal" ssd
Now in movies/music copy/paste stuff from the 970 evo ssd i have no issues, but in games sometimes the drive will give an error like drive not recognized.

Now the ssd will be in a weird state, i can't access any old data so no games/movies/music, but i can create new files or copy new video files and access them. If i want to access the old data i have to restart the computer. any new data created/copied to the ssd will not show up after restart.

Is it a windows issues? a mb issues? ssd issue?
