So my 3rd drive lately when i turn on my pc sometimes it just wont be detected in certain ways. Like my one drive cant find it or it wont show up in the disk optimization window. I can still see it in file explorer and device manager and access all the files even play games installed on it. Its just like its connected but not fuilly detected ina weird way. Ive run a cmd to check all the drives and they all report back OK , After a few restarts it will be fine but im not sure why could be an issue, if its hardware or software. (Running windows 10 )

Have you try another SATA Port , or changing the SATA cable for your 3rd drive ? Bad connection sometimes make some minor errors. And Also does the drive letter is in sequence ( ex : C, D, E) ?

sorry for the late reply, i did try a new sata slot and it came online but im not sure it was the issue, i wound up reformatting it and that didnt quite work then after like 3 reformats some drive letter changes some weirdness where it clones itself it seems to have fixed itself but i still have no idea what happened @_@ Thasnk you tho for the help :D
