Windows 7: Hard Drive disappears on windows

Hard Drive disappears on windows

In the last month something strange is happening in my PC, I have 2 hard drives, one that has the OS and the other for files, both are 1TB. They have been functioning well for months but in the last few weeks, sometimes when the second HDD is being accessed, for example when I run Vuze or I try to copy something, the icon disappears from the "My Computer" window and I can't access it no more. Then if I try to restart it it hangs when detecting hardware before the windows animation, it cant detect the HDD, but if I turn it off and turn it on again it works normally again, can someone help me?
