I was trying to find the answer before posting here not to duplicate any thread but in vain.
The situation - my simple custom built pc has 3 drives - 500gb SSD for windows, 120gb SSD for extra storage, 2tb HDD for main storage.
for couple years 120gb used to be for system and just recently was replaced by 500gb ssd.
For some reason PC started not recognize sometimes second ssd and sometimes hdd and when loaded only two drives are visible, always the system drive and one secondry (in bios, disk management etc).
Cables connecting mobo and drives are okay, all firmly pushed in. tried to replace those cables with new ones - still the same happening.
has anyone else experienced the same issue? what could be the reason?
