BSOD 4 times in 5 minutes

Itís doing it again. Random crashes. A few weeks ago, someone here pointed corrupted drivers for my network card, so whenever I experience a BSOD, I try to delete/reinstall the driver, just to make sure itís ok...
But I just experienced now 4 crashes in a row, within 5 minutes.
I need help again!

I have, what did I miss? The zip is included with all info (I guess at least). Otherwise, there isn't much to say. I was working, the PC froze. Rebooted, opened my usual applications again (Outlook, Chrome, Audacity and 2 more professional apps), and within seconds, it froze again. Did it 2 more times.

W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

Hi Glencoe,

Half of the logs are missing, including the dump files.

From whats available,
StorageCraft is having problems trying to copy and failing, on multiple volumes 2 thru 6.

The event logs only start from 10th Sept and its regularly reporting this problem, is that when you installed it if so then i suspect somethings missconfigured.

Thanks Torchwood for your input, I will investigate with StorageCraft. I suspected the software, but wasn't sure. Also, most of the time, I don't get dump files when the PC freezes. Not sure why,
