    After you eject a USB drive, can you make it show up again

    Hello wildgoat,

    Do you have a front USB port to use instead to make it easier to disconnect and reconnect?

    It would be easier to do the above, but other than restarting the PC, you could also do this below to remount the ejected USB drive.

    Remount Ejected or Safely Removed USB Device Without Unplug and Reinsert

    Hope this helps.
