Hi there.

A really funny thing happend on my way to the forum this morning :)

After Microsoft's Update service installed the update for Visual Studio 2005
, KB932232 My Maxtor SATA disk completely disappeared (error (0x80070015) in
the logs.

According to the Windows Vista Ultimate System log and App logs Windows was
deleting a Volume Shadow Copy right before this happened

Anybody having any idea of where my SATA disk went and especially WHY ??

Restarting and chosing Last known good configuration did not help.

Kind regards,

Tony Thijs

I had a similar thing happening here, my Sata drive had disappeared all
of a sudden after I had woken the PC out of his afternoon nap. It had
even disappeared from the BIOS. So I opened the case
and checked the connetions, they seemed oké, but I reconnected them
anyway. After I had restarted it appeared in the BIOS again and Vista
discovered a new HD and installed the drivers. Now, what do you make of
that?

Hi Mammamegs,
Sounds great. That is, the reappearing :) .
I had something the like om august 23 1995, the day before Windows 95 was
released. I added a page tot the knowledge base about -reproducable-
disappearing and reappearing disks and partitions.
Nothing new out there.

I saved 3 days of app and system logs for analytical purposes. I've send
this mail to a Dutch MS IT Pro advisor as well.
After I have saved some Document subs to USB sticks I'm going to shut down
and try that out.
Kind regards,
Tony Thijs

We have had a similar sudden disappearance of a SATA drive. It is an
intermittent problem that only occurs when copying large files -
typically 8GB plus. It happens when using Microsoft's "Backup" and when
trying to copy the result of the backup from one SATA disk to another.
All the internal SATA drives are SATA II and they are on the same
controller chip on an EVGA nForce 680i Mainboard. The problem looks like
a hardware timing problem because the copy fails at different points in
a large file copy operation. Interestingly, an internal SATA II drive
copy to an external SATA II drive that is USB 2 connected doesn't have
any copy failures. When a drive suddenly disappears, there is no
remaining reference to it. It is as if the software have completely
destached the drive. For example, "D:" is gone and doesn't reappear with
a disk rescan. You have to do a cold start. The only error message is
that a file cannot be accessed. This is true enough because the
operating system thinks that the drive no longer exists. The
disappearance can be either the drive from which the data are read or
the drive to which a file is being written.
It is possible that the problem is related to a volume shadow copy.
There are a number of KBs related to this issue on Microsoft Windows
Server 2003. I have not seen any similar comment about Vista/Windows
Server 2008.
