I have a drive that stopped being visible in Windows File Explorer. I tried Disk Management in the Computer Management tool and it's not shown there either. Disk Management does take a longer than normal time to bring up the drives report. My guess it's trying to query the 'bad' drive and failed.
However the drive is visible in the motherboard's BIOS and it's also visible in the HWiNFO32 tool which runs under Windows. Other than using SpinRite which works outside Windows, is there any Windows diagnostics tool which can help fix this problem and get the drive working again? I don't understand why it shows in one Windows tool but not in File Explorer.
