In my x32Win10ProV22H2, I have SSDs that are connected via SATA ports, but whose power can be switched on (and off) as required. The BIOS has been set to ACHI, so all connected drives should be 'hot swapable'. Yet from time to time, newly connected (i.e. newly powered) drives, do not get detected unless I first reboot the PC. I'm looking for a tweak that will force detection without rebooting. I have tried rescanning disks in Disk Management and in DiskPart, but that does not do it- although intuitively those methods are attractive. Is there another option ?

See from Device Manager scanning for hardware changes will help.

No, Device Manager's scanning for hardware does NOT fix the problem.

It rather looks like the most promising technique is to depower the drive and power it again - that fixes it SOMETIMES if not always.
