I am having a very bad weekend. I am having problems with a HDD, so on Thursday I when out a bought a new HDD to go in the bank of 4 HDD's. To add this new drive to the computer system I also got a 7 port D-Link Hub giving me enough space for other drives in the future (or so I thought). After plugging the new drive into the new Hub and adding the other four drives, Windows 7 is playing up.
One: It takes a long time to start up Windows 7 :(
Two: When started, I have to re-share the drives so that "Er indoors" can access files and work on items. :'(
Three: Only 4 out of the 5 drives are seen by the computer and one of the drives looks like it turns itself off. :'(
I have now put the old 4 port hub back on and all 4 (NOT 5) drives are working, could it be that Windows 7 will only recognise 4 drives at anyone time or am I doing something else wrong.
The drives are a mixture of sizes from 500GB to 1TB.
I am running Windows 7 ultimate - AVG 9 and then your standard software that you would find on a Business Computer.
Does anyone have any advice they can give me as this is getting very frustrating and I am now starting to pull out my hair (what is left of it) as I have been working on this problem for two days now!!! with no result.
Thanks for reading this post and thanks for your help in advance.
All the very best for now.
