Ok I have been having trouble getting my secondhard drive to accept the ftp files. I finnaly almost got ot it and now I somehow lost the second hard drive in my list with all my files and info. I cant even get my computer to pick my hard drive back up now for some reason. It is driving me nuts not the ftp part more along the lines of the second hard drive not working. Anyone got any ideas to help?
First, (I am assuming it is a Windows machine) check for the presence of the drive in Windows Explorer. If you can see it there, then try to find files on it. This will let you know if there are any issues at the operating system level regarding the drive.
If you can't see it, then next check the connections to the drive.
If nothing else has changed and the connections to the drive have not been simply wiggled loose, then it is a hardware issue. This spells trouble for the data on the drive.
Check the connections from the motherboard and power supply to the drive, and if all is secure and the operating system still intermittently does not see the drive upon startup, then back up the data as soon as possible.
Hardware is built in the physical world, it gets worn just as anything else will.
Ok what I was asking is why my computer went crazy and lost the drivers. for my second hard drive, I was useing my secong 80 gig hdd to store all the ftp files on including the ftp program. I understand what u was saying it was kinda in the same boat as my question but not really there. i just want to know why my second hard drive dont work anymore because i need the files off of it for the second ftp program that i have....
