    Wierd hard drive disconnect issue. Details inside


    Hello every one.I am having a very wierd issue with my hard drive dissapearing.

    When I Run a specific Bukkit Minecraft server (I have MANY servers with the EXACT same configurations and plugins;none of these have this problem) which is on my E Drive (Which is not a partition of my c drive)
    my C drive usage will start having 100% usage spikes and after a few seconds the C drive stays at 100% usage
    and then the E drive dissapears and won't reappear on the list until I restart the computer

    P.S. When Firefox is open Firefox seems to be using the disk at 100% but when fire fox is closed the System process seems to be using the disk (or System Host (Peer Networking)Sometimes)

    Since these are shares. Are they coming off of a remote server, or a server in your place of residence.

    So is this a dedicated server, or are they shares on a computer that is also a workstation? If you are getting spikes on disk use. You can look at the process with SysInternals Process Explorer (can be downloaded from microsoft.com), which can help figure out which process is taking over the system.
