Question Why does my drive keep disconnecting and everything on it crashes, for example steam.

Every now and then about 37 times a day my E: Drive disconnects and its location in my files appears on my screen. Apps running on the drive like Steam and Battle.net crash and then the games i am running crash aswell. Does anybody have a solution for this?

Internal or external drive?
Which drive?
Tried new cables?
I meant to say 3-7 times a day. It is an internal drive and I have not tried a new cable yet. Its just getting to the point where games I am playing will crash and it is getting irritating.

I have the same problem and changing the cables did not work. However, you should try to change the cable first. As for me I have to assess a little bit further before deciding to buy a new HDD. What I meant by did not work is the HDD still disconnect and after reconnect itself windows explorer of related HDD will pop out, but ever since I changed a new cable it only happened in less frequency than previous cable used. The problem is, it still disconnecting.
