I can try moving to another SATA port on my motherboard though. Is there any way to know which drive was being accessed that caused the failure so I know which to move?
Your welcome. That is a good question.
Just off the top of my head, you could try checking Performance Monitor to see if there are any error/warning messages.
Start menu >Administrative Tools >Performance Monitor >Then double click reports, then system, then system diagnostics >then the report.
It can also be found by going to:
Start menu >Run >Type in perfmon >click OK >Then double click reports, then system, then system diagnostics >then the report.
Check to see if there are any red "failed" reports in Diagnostic Reports Warnings.
You can also scroll down to check detailed Basic System Reports, and CPU.
If they are not open, click on the down arrow to the far right.
