My Secondary SSD D: drive disappears when trying to install games from steam and epic and won't reappear unless I restart my computer. When the drive disappears my computer tends to start having small stutters every couple of seconds. In the epic games launcher there claims to be a file corruption error when the SSD disappears from my device manager. I have tried rescanning disks in disk management and the drive doesn't reappear only when I restart my computer. I have also reinstalled windows and that didn't fix my issue. According to Hard Disk sentinel both of my drives are at95% health.
